Introducing Montreal's first Metro bar map

For all its greatness, using the Montreal Metro can occasionally be an experience that leaves you needing a stiff drink, so we’ve put together a guide to help you do just that -- by plotting out the best bar within a 5-10 minute walk of every one of the most popular stops on the map (and therefore excluding the industrial bar-wasteland of the Orange Line’s Northwest corner, the drinkery-free parks & suburbia tagged onto the ends of the Green Line, and the Yellow Line’s teetotal island layover).

Check out a blown-up version of the map here, and see below for each line in its individual glory.

Previous Venue Next Venue Venue Description
1. Wings 'N Things 5663 Royalmount, Montreal, H4P 2P9

This Royal Mount wingery has a seriously sweet menu loaded with numerous tantalizing options, but you'd be crazy to to tempt your tastebuds with anything but their peanut butter wings.

This under-the-radar drinkery is a no-nonsense watering hole with cold drinks and cheap prices.

Previous Venue Next Venue Venue Description
4. Honey Martin 5916 Sherbrooke St W, Montréal, H4A 1X7

Honey Martin is easily among Montréal's best Irish pubs. The highlights? Flowing pints of Guinness, live music most nights, a somewhat dive-y feel, and a great mix of both crazy 20-somethings and only slightly less-crazy older folks. It's definitely worth a trip.

Previous Venue Next Venue Venue Description
5. Chez Mitch 4210 Saint-Jacques Rue, Montreal, H4C 1J5

If you're looking for a enjoyable spot near the Place-Saint-Henri metro spot, look no further than Chez Mitch, which doles out a variety of adult beverages at decent prices.

7. Madhatter Pub 1208 Crescent St, Montréal, H3G 2A9

This rockin' bar will definitely take you down the rabbit hole to discover extremely cheap drinks. But pace yourself, $1 beer specials can be dangerous.

8. Dominion Square Tavern 1243 rue Metcalfe, Montréal, H3B 2V5

The Dominion Square Tavern first opened its doors in 1927 as a hotel restaurant and is still one of the classiest establishments in town, known for their traditional absinthe presentations.

10. Bily Kun 354 ave. du Mont-Royal Est, Montréal, H2T 1P9

Located in the trendy French neighborhood, Plateau, this friendly watering hole is a local favorite and is decked out with an entire wall of... yup, you guessed it... ostrich heads!

Previous Venue Next Venue Venue Description
11. Dieu du Ciel! 29 Ave Laurier Ouest, Montréal, H2T 2N2

This microbrewery and pub features beers infused with everything from hibiscus to coffee. One of the most popular brews: a creamy cocoa vanilla stout aptly named the Aphrodisiaque (ooh la la!).

Previous Venue Next Venue Venue Description
12. Notre Dame des Quilles 32 rue Beaubien Est, Montréal, H2S 1P8

Great bar food (grilled cheese and mac 'n cheese anyone?), even better happy hour prices, and the fact that it's a bowling alley are the primary reasons that the NDQ is a happenin' hangout.

Previous Venue Next Venue Venue Description
13. Vices & Versa Bistro Du Terroir 6631 boul. Saint-Laurent, Montréal, H2S 3C5

Wash down pub grub like pulled pork poutine and fries served with Imperial Stout-infused mayo with their 33 craft beers on tap.

Previous Venue Next Venue Venue Description
14. Pub Cock n' Bull 1944 rue Saint-Catherine Ouest, Montréal, H2M 2T6

Stop by one of their three Montreal locations and kick back with a pint and some of the finest pub grub in town, like burgers, poutine, pies, and wings.

Previous Venue Next Venue Venue Description
16. Big in Japan 3723 boul. Saint-Laurent, Montréal, H2X 2V7

It may be Big in Japan, but Montreal loves it too. This Japanese izakaya was visited by Anthony Bourdain and he certainly loved the sake, and you will too, as well as the green tea-braised spare ribs.

Previous Venue Next Venue Venue Description
17. Le Sainte-Élisabeth 1412, rue Sainte-Élisabeth, Montréal, H2X 3C6

This European-style pub has tons of microbrews on tap alongside an extensive whiskey selection. The best part of this spot, however, may be its giant, vine-covered outdoor terrace.
