Many of you will understand how I fell in love with the darker side of our 24 hour day. Having friends working at the hottest nightlife spots around the city and working in the industry myself made it easy. Too easy. Being “hooked up” ensured instant entry to venues no matter the line-up, countless free drinks, and new acquaintances that perpetuated the cycle.
After graduating from university, I moved to two of the world’s largest fashion capitals for various Fashion industry internships, and I brought my penchant for nightlife with me. Meeting with Saks Fifth Avenue buyers, dressing male models, merchandising designer clothes and compiling sales reports occupied my days, while dinners at Pastis, parties at the Standard Hotel’s Boom Boom Room, and events studded with celebrities like Penn Badgley and Scarlett Johansson occupied my nights.
Now, I’m back in Montreal, and have evolved from party girl to young professional. My inclination towards the finer things in life – new and up-coming restaurants, nightlife, and fashion – hasn’t left me. For everyone past the age of 25 who still loves to go out – this blog is an attempt at giving you a plugged insider’s view and opinion of Montreal’s best spots. Hot but classy, trendy but effortless. Welcome to my world.
