Atwater Cocktail Club
Packed to the rafters night after night, Atwater Cocktail Club is relatively new to Montreal’s thriving bar scene, yet locals are already sold on the craft cocktails. Expect drinks infused with Mexican heat and tropical freshness—common flavors include jalapeño, agave, hibiscus, and lavender. Modeled with a speakeasy in mind, the interior is dark and moody. Behind the long emerald marble bar are shelves heaving with every spirit imaginable; the latter half of the room is cozy yet sultry with pink leather booths, glossy dark wood walls, and small gold tables. For those who like a bite with their drink, an added bonus—and serious incentive—is the option to order French brasserie plates from Foiegwa next door (conveniently, the establishments share the same owners).
