Nobody wants to need a pharmacy at 4 am and not know where to go. Luckily, Montreal has a bunch of essential spots that are open 24 hours a day.

We’re talking gas stations, all-day parking garages, restaurants, and pharmacies.

From a 2 am bagel to the 5 am band-aid, here are some 24-hour spots around Montreal you should know about.

Everyone needs a 24-hour pharmacy in their repertoire. Whether that’s getting essential supplies in the wee hours of the morning or stuff for the kids a night, this downtown Jean Coutu (corner of Parc and Sherbrooke) does not close.

Angela’s makes a mean pizza. Their pies are good at 6 pm, so you can imagine how much they’ll hit the spot at 4 am when you really need it.

Angela’s also makes great pasta, pitas, and soups.

Everyone needs a good 24-hour pizza place…

Casino de Montréal

There’s always something going on at the Casino de Montréal. The casino is not technically running 24/7 just yet (due to COVID) but will ramp up its hours throughout the summer, assuming everything goes well amid the ongoing pandemic.
