Fun with BIXI

Mood: Fun

An itinerary created by Moodmap in collaboration with Mazrou 

The curious and adventurous Mazrou always have their fingers on the pulse when it comes to what’s going on in Montreal. As soon as weather permits, they head out on their bikes, looking for adventure in all four corners of the city. If you’re looking to have fun this weekend, you’re in luck – the Mazrou are here to help guide you to good times!

10 am – Take The Time To Take Your Time Enjoying A Good Coffee

You have every right to take your time waking up on a weekend morning! It’s the one time of week you can sit down and pour over the newspaper, flip through a magazine or get your nose in a good book. Head over to Café Olympico, a true Mile End institution that serves some of the best Italian coffee in town. In summer months, take the time to lounge outside while getting a good dose of vitamin D. There’s no better way to start your day than with a cappuccino, croissant and a good read!

Café Olimpico, 124 Saint-Viateur Street W.
Closest BIXI Station : Waverly / Saint-Viateur

12 pm – Picnic at Jeanne-Mance Park

If you’re in the mood to enjoy one of Montreal’s many green spaces, head to Jeanne-Mance Park for a picnic. Pack your BIXI’s front basket full of delicious treats and laze in the grass. Don’t forget to bring your Frisbee!

Closest BIXI Station : Jeanne Mance Park (George-Étienne Cartier monument)

5 pm – Take A Break For Board Games And Beverages

Le Colonel Moutard on St-Denis has dozens and dozens of board games for their (grown up) customers to enjoy! Get into a game with your friends, all while enjoying an excellent cocktail made with local ingredients and some seriously sensational snacks. The Mazrous recommend their Slavic pizza (made with a beet purée), grilled cheese, Guinness house chilli or beef bourguignon. Seriously – when was the last time you actually played Clue?

Closest BIXI Station: Mont-Royal Metro (Rivard / Mont-Royal)

9 pm – Travel Through Time By Hitting The Arcade

Keep this playful night going by getting your game on in a whole other universe. Why not get retro by giving pinball a go? If you’re anything like us, you’ll find yourself yelling when the ball drops before you’ve hit as many points as you had hoped… Plus, the machines only accept $1 coins, staying true to their original era. Guaranteed good times!

North Star Pinball, 3908 Saint-Laurent Boulevard

11:30 pm – Salon Daomé To Let Loose a Little… Ok, A Lot

Located in the heart of the Plateau, this spot is the crown jewel of Mont-Royal street. Lovers of local electro artists come here to dance until the wee hours of the morning. Daomé’s chill ambience makes it the perfect place to meet new people – if you’re planning a night out on the town, hitting up this spot is an absolute must! We hear their Sunday nights are the best of the week, which is awesome if you don’t have Monday morning commitments. Check it out and let us know!
