Boulevard Saint-Laurent, nicknamed “The Main,” is Montreal’s most vital vein. This blog takes its name from the notorious stretch, and was created to represent the Montreal lifestyle in all its glory– the stimulating fashion, music, art, people, food and much more.
We keep Montrealers up to date on local music, fashion, events and more… rain, shine or ice storm of ’98.
If you’d like to promote local events, artists or hidden gems, or just want to say hi, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Philip Tabah - Founder / Editor-in-Chief
This ambitious Montreal native has made it his job to show the big MTL what’s up. He created The Main to show off what Montreal can really offer to all you wild people. The Main is as much for him as it is for its readers and he wants to make it all the easier to discover what’s brewing under the radar. On his watch, only the highest quality content from some of Montreal’s finest writers, photographers and champion ramblers will be posted for your reading pleasure. He hopes you enjoy his baby, The Main.
Camille Chacra – Editor-in-Chief
This shameless broad is here to share what really butters her biscuits about Montreal. A local journalist and avid yapper, Camille takes her torrid relationship with the city very seriously. She is beyond turned on by its passionate love of art, music, fashion, history and other aphrodisiacs, which is why she teamed up with big boss Phil in early 2012 to jumpstart this Em-tee-ell bible. Through the neglected richness of the written word, she hopes to charm everyone into loving the city as much as she does. xx
Sarvenaz Amir-E. – Music Editor
Better known as Sarve (mute “e”), this restless, young Montrealite considers herself well-immersed in the world of music. With her previously sponged knowledge from music website MeetYouAtTheShow, she is looking forward to informing you as best she can of all local, music-related current events!
Ariana Molly – Fashion Editor /Street Style Photographer
This feisty, ex-Ottawan and has always felt a certain “je ne sais quoi” toward the curious city of Montreal. As a doe-eyed first-year university student, she has seldom encountered a city with such zest, which of course means she adores her job as street style photographer and fashion editor. She hopes to capture the impractical beauty and wild style that graces the streets without getting her panties in a bunch– and intends to do so with enchanting wit and an ever-so-slightly scandalous charm.
Daniel Bromberg – Food Editor
Daniel is just your typical guy. He likes to drink, loves to explore, and relishes eating his heart out in Montreal. With a keen eye for detail, his photographs capture the spirit of the city, and his narratives express the undying passion he has for it. Whenever in doubt, trust him to give you the best advice on where to visit, what to do, and how to devour it.
Caitlin Walsh Miller - Culture Editor
Caitlin straight up loves Montreal. She loves the people, she loves the languages they speak, she loves the mountain, she loves the bars, and she loves the Main. That’s a lot of love to go around (and boy, has she been around)… But she always ends up back in Montreal, and she’s here to tell you WHY.
