The team behind Buvette chez Simone is also behind this new spot located right next door. Cocktails, excellent bottles and a few plates to share are on the menu.

With a list of 100 or so natural wine bottles, Bar Verdun Beach is a great place to gather and celebrate. In addition to the wines, the menu of beautiful small plates and the charming space (and terrasse in summer) contribute in creating a great dining experience.

Peacock oiseau de nuit

Tropical chic cocktail bar Peacock oiseau de nuit has recently opened in Little Italy. The music and the cocktails are inspired by the 80s and 90s and have a touch of “tiki” style while being more sophisticated. Funky wines and a market-forward menu are also on offer.

Chez Ernest

Self-proclaimed “comptoir de curiosités” (cabinet of oddities), Chez Ernest has quickly become a favourite on Plaza St-Hubert. It specializes in absinthe, of which it has a dozen bottles hailing from all over the world. Every “oddity” on display, at Chez Ernest is up for sale, from vintage maps to insects preserved in jars.

Specializing in beer, Rosemont’s Mellön Brasserie is a small brewery and to-go shop. “Mellon” means “friend” in Tolkien’s elfin language. There’s no food on the menu but you can bring your food from other restaurants and enjoy it on their premises paired with one or tow of their beers.
