Where Connoisseurs Need To Go In Montreal

For any true connoisseur of the finer things in life, there are four things that must be savored when traveling to a new city:

  • Food
  • Cigars
  • Coffee
  • Wom…Scotch

 

Welcome to the good life. Here’s where to indulge in Montreal:

Game Meat At Atwater Market

Montreal has several public markets spread out throughout the city that are loaded with local produce, meat, and fish. Walking around the market is an experience by itself with all of the different sights and smells. While there are a few public markets to choose from, we’d recommend heading to Atwater Market. Located right on the Lachine Canal, it is the perfect spot for any of the connoisseurs in your bachelor party group to nerd out. One of the best parts about the market for connoisseurs is that it stocks hard to find game meats such as kangaroo, bison, and ostrich. On the weekend, Atwater is packed with shoppers, but it is worth fighting through the crowds.

Cigars At Casa De Habanos

Casa De Habanos is the place to go for premium, aged cigars. Located right downtown on Sherbrooke Street, Habanos staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and their selection is incredible. You’ll find a wide variety of Cuban cigars, which is always a treat for our American guests. Pair a cigar with some port and you’ll have a great start to the bachelor party weekend.

Montreal Cigars

3rd Wave Coffee Shops

Montreal’s Mile End neighborhood is considered to be one of the trendiest AKA hipster-filled in the world. With a healthy amount of random tattoos, edgy haircuts, and expensive vegan food in this city, you’re bound to find good 3rd wave coffee shops (Whatever that means…) But since you like your artisanal coffee, we’d recommend trying Pikolo or Dispatch. Modeled after an Australian coffee house, Pikolo is centrally located and serves strong coffee that is perfect after a big night out (It pairs nicely with Legs And Eggs.) If you really are a coffee snob, head to the epicenter of all things hipster, Dispatch Coffee. The minimalist shop was designed for the customer to focus on the coffee and not the ambiance. Dispatch is well known among coffee aficionados so don’t be surprised if your coffee roaster buddy sneaks away for an hour or two.

Third Wave Coffee Montreal

Scotch Tasting At Burgundy Lion

If the whole bachelor party is scotch or whisky snobs, head to Burgundy Lion for a private tasting with a resident expert. They’ll walk you through the history behind the booze, where it comes from, and how it is made. They will answer any questions and will happily accommodate any special tasting requests you may have.

We’d be happy to help set you up with a tasting if that is something you’d be interested in. Give us a call (1-877-690-4919) or email us.

Best Cigar Lounges In Montreal

Your bachelor party is a time for you and your buddies to get together and bond over trying new things. New city, new food, jello wrestling with strippers… Sometimes though there is nothing better than a familiar vice, a good old fashioned cigar washed down with a strong scotch. It’s something that your girlfriend/wife/mistress wouldn’t approve of, but is always a crowd pleaser with the boys. Here are the best Montreal cigar lounges:

La Casa Del Habano

La Casa Del Habano is where The Most Interesting Man in the World would go if he were to smoke a cigar in Montreal. Located in the heart of downtown, Casa has one of the largest selection of Cubans in North America, bound to put some hair on your shaved chest. It has any type of cigar you could ever want in their walk in humidor. The smoking area has an open floor plan, great for large groups. For the cigar connoisseur, they have Cohiba, Behike, Partagas, Montecristo, and Davidoff on hand. Pair a trip to Casa with a supper club and a lesbian show and you’ll have yourself an unforgettable night.

Chez Alexandre

The combination restaurant and cigar lounge is a great place to kick off the night before heading to one of the great, morally sound institutions Montreal has to offer. Peel Street’s Chez Alexandre’s smoking room is small, a bit like your grandfather’s man cave, but can still accommodate larger groups and is a nice place to have an after dinner drink, cigar, and watch a game on their wide screen TV’s. For the cigar connoisseur, they have Cohiba, Behike, Partagas, Montecristo, and Davidoff on hand.

Stogies Cigar Lounge  

Stogies is not your father’s cigar lounge. With its sleek design and outdoor seating overlooking the action on Crescent, Stogies is the perfect spot for a group that enjoys the atmosphere more than the actual smoke. Many locals, including some friendly French Canadian girls, visit the lounge before a night out. For the sake of your night though, whatever you do after, go out here instead of Crescent.
