While I love a classic drink, or a funky twist to it, there is nothing more exciting than discovering new ones you can’t find anywhere else. Montreal counts so many independent bars, some more out there than others, and one great way to differentiate themselves is by getting a mixologist on board to concoct unique recipes. Let’s check out Montreal’s best house cocktails, should you like to try something different on your next night out.
Le Mal Nécessaire
Of course Montreal’s favourite tiki bar is on this list! With a drink you can literally enjoy straight out of a pineapple, it is without surprise their exhaustive house cocktail menu will have you coming back as often as possible.

The Plateau cocktail lounge just updated their menu, and it surely doesn’t disappoint. The cocktail bar also serves as a tea room with its British-inspired decor, so it is without surprise they’ve got a cocktail in a fancy little cup. They’ve also got a killer goji berry drink you have got to TRY!
92 Avenue Laurier O.
Datcha’s little sister is a cozy little bar perfect to for a first date or to bring your friends from out of town. This hole in the wall offers Russian-inspired cocktails (think Moscow Mule) and you can hop on the other side to dance it off all night long.
115 Laurier O.
Montreal’s beloved Baldwin Barmacie (RIP!) was replaced by Henrietta, a new neighbourhood spot you’ve got to try! It is the same owners and the same cool vibe as before, just a different concept all together. The Portuguese ambiance is inspired by Alexandre Baldwin’s origins and it will become your new to-go spot on Laurier Avenue.
