La Distillerie

Bar in Plateau Mont-Royal & the Northeast

Although it's a bit of a hike down Ave du Mont-Royal, La Distillerie is worth the trip for its excellent cocktails (served in Mason jars), friendly bartenders and easygoing crowd. The aesthetic is industrial chic, with exposed bulbs, industrial fixtures and a long wooden bar. There's no food, but you can grab pizza from across the street and eat it here.

There are two other branches of La Distillerie in town, including one in the Quartier Latin.
