We had the pleasure of spending most of an evening at this fine establishment recently. A fantastic selection of whiskies and Single Malt Scotch in particular. A fun time with some regulars and with very friendly staff as well. Slainte Mhath.

I recently attended two whiskey(scotch) tastings and loved the stories & enjoyed tastings, staff & everyone that attended. I've also been here on saturday nights which I thoroughly enjoyed. I will definitely keep going back.

Even though I spend a lot of time around the area, I had not heard of this bar until a friend brought me here. It's relatively tucked away on Mackay and doesn't boast the big crowds that tend to flock to the nearby Irish pubs...More

I just love this cute little speakeasy downtown. The lights are dim and makes for a cozy sexy vibe. The staff is great the cocktails amazing and all the clients are very kind and respectful.

You have to have frequented Montreal's ever-dwindling menu of over-pretentious haunts to realise what a gem this little cocktail dive really is. Situated covertly west of Crescent St just down from Guy-Concordia metro, you'd be hard-pressed to find it if you walked down Mackay with...More

N on Mackay is a great place to try out cocktails ... and lots of them! They've got a great selection and they keep updating it, every season, and there's cocktails of the week too. It's a nice little sit down place to go with...More

As the name suggests, this place is on Mackay Street. And I'm told that N is for Natasha - the operator of the establishment. You have to look carefully for the sign outside - a letter 'N' is fairly non-descript. But it's worth the effort...More

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
