This British-style pub and restaurant doles out a variety of brews and liquors, and they have lengthy menu with options for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert.
This Rosemont Petite-Patrie bar is a hip haven, with walls covered in wood and brick, a hockey game playing in the background, and special drinks like the original Smokey Caesar; with Tabasco, dehydrated jalapeños rehydrated in tomato sauce, Karnatzel sausage, and Montreal steak spice.
Located in the Plateau, BAR inc. is dive bar with balls; disco balls that is. Mirrors on the ceiling, exposed brick, and decorative garage doors adorn the place, so stop by and order one of the beer bucket specials with nachos during a hockey game for $20.
Apt. 200 is a loft party meets an old-school arcade, with a little reading nook that looks like it came straight out of a Sherlock Holmes book. It doesn’t make sense on paper, but works beautifully together, and you can head to the Plateau to get your fill of it.
Head to the Plateau to visit this drinkery where drinks are made with bacon-infused vodka and will have guys feeling the romance with their garnishes: bacon roses. The awesome and quirky menu does not end with drinks. Everything on the food menu includes bacon, like the bacon caramel donuts and the Brutus salad, which comes in a bowl made of bacon.
This speakeasy features a happy hour that runs well past 7p, and outside of that, you can snag a pair of pints or a handcrafted specialty 'tail for $10 until 10p ANY night of the week.
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!
When you find yourself in a place called Nacho Libre, you have no idea what to expect, and you probably never expected it to have a Nintendo corner where you could play games like Star Wars Episode I: Racer and Diddy Kong Racing. Once you finish playing, you could sit in a swing, look at some Lucha Libre wrestlers on the walls, eat some Mexican food, and have some beers.
Located in the Plateau neighborhood, Le Lab has an extensive cocktail menu that changes regularly and churns out inventive concoctions like the Deer Hunter (Jägermeister, violet liqueur, and lime). It might not even be a stretch to say that Le Lab might just make some of the best cocktails in the country, and if it doesn’t anymore, it certainly paved the way for bartenders to aspire to fancy techniques that hadn’t even crossed their booze-addled minds. The bar is dimly lit and has the feel of an ol’ timey speakeasy, and if you don't like anything on the menu, the experienced "Labtenders" will be happy to mix up any classic 'tail, or something from their list of originals.
This is one of the better spots in the city to come and watch a game on their numerous TVs and grab a drink. And if you're feeling extra adventurous, take a crack at their mechanical bull.
If you're a fan of dancing and sweet music (and really, who isn't?), check out Korova, which also has one of the coolest bar features ever: an old 7-Up machine converted to spit out PBRs.
Located just up the street from their resto with the same name, Big in Japan Bar doles out classic 'tails, but you'll probably let curiosity get the best of you and try their absinthe fountain.
Ever wanted to get your hair cut and enjoy a drink at the same time? The Blue Dog Motel is not a motel, but actually a bar and a barbershop. Before heading to the bar section, schedule the Royal Deluxe treatment, which includes a haircut and a hot towel shave with your choice of either whiskey or beer.
