Le Sacrilège

Top choice bar in Outside the Old City

With its unmistakable sign of a laughing, dancing monk saucily flaunting his knickers, this bar has long been the watering hole of choice for Québec's night owls, who start or end their weekend revelry here. Even on Monday, it’s standing-room only. There’s a popular terrace out back; get to it through the bar or the tiny brick alley next door.
