A Montreal bar celebrating Nuit Blanche

16 Montreal bars will stay open till 6 a.m. for Nuit Blanche 2020

More bars than ever have been granted special permission to extend their hours for the annual all-night art party.

The 2020 edition of Nuit Blanche is happening on Feb. 29, and for the occasion, 16 Montreal bars will be serving alcohol till 6 a.m. As reported by CTV Montreal, all the bars in question are located in the Quartier Latin and Village neighbourhoods.

The city has granted this special permission to more establishments this year due to higher demand from bar owners, according to Luc Rabouin, the Montreal executive committee member responsible for economic and commercial development. Nine Montreal bars were allowed to extend their hours till 6 a.m. in 2016 (all of them in Quartier Latin), and 12 bars have had the privilege from 2017 through 2019.
