MTLàTABLE: pubs and supper clubs
If you’re into partying or pairing beer with your meal, this MTLàTABLE restaurant list is just for you.
Montréal’s most electrifying restaurants and supper clubs
The heart that beats under Montréal’s city centre is Soubois Restaurant. With a menu that features Québec products and an underground forest design, this place is part restaurant, part bar and part nightclub. Come see if you fall under the spell of the enchanted forest.
Follow the same festive vibe to Buonanotte, a spicy Italian restaurant that’s been a mainstay of The Main since 1991. (And, to be clear, The Main is also known as Saint-Laurent Boulevard.)
La Champagnerie is never short on sparkle with a seasonal menu that features local fare and—of course—more than 60 types of champagne.
Last but not least, Le Saloon is the go-to watering hole in the Gay Village. They serve a dozen different martinis and international cuisine while their house DJ keeps things groovy.
Pubs with panache
If you’re looking to kick-start your evening in style, head to Rosewood, a stylish and happening pub in Old Montréal. They offer inspired tasting dishes made using local products as well as cocktails concocted with fresh, seasonal ingredients.
Want to celebrate a la italiana? BEVO Bar + Pizzeria is located in a gorgeous 19th century building with original stone walls and a welcoming urban ambience. Thursdays through Saturdays, there’s a DJ to keep things hopping until 2 a.m.
At Alexandre et fils, head upstairs to the English pub with 12 varieties of imported beer as well as a cigar smoking room.
