Montreal didn’t get its nickname, Sin City of the North, for nothing. Sure, sure, there’s the notoriously seedy string of clubs down the St. Catherines strip and the famous nightlife of Crescent St, but more importantly, Montrealers know how to party anywhere, all the time. Dance party in an igloo? We call that Igloofest. Hippie picnic/medieval larping on the side of a mountain? We call that Tams. And yes, Vegas, Ibiza, Cancun can all easily lay claim to a sturdier nightlife scene, but Montreal beats them all out thanks to the fact that this city's frolicking enhances the lives of the locals, rather than eroding their faith in humanity one drunken reveler at a time.
