Exploring Canada's hot-spot city that never sleeps, this innovative guide visits 24 Montreal locations--from nightclubs and restaurants to bistros, hotels, and cabarets--each at a different hour of the day. Offering unique personal narratives in each review, this account profiles the owners, workers, and even patrons of a variety of local favorites, including the funky bluegrass club Grumpy's; the 24-hour Lebanese hangout Boustan; the bustling morning market Marche Centrale; the legendary greasy spoon Cosmos; the bar of choice for Plateau hipsters, Copacabana; and the home away from home for superstars such as Madonna and Bruce Springsteen, the Hotel Le St. James.
