Photo cred - Eva Rees What better way to start your evening than with a Caesar? As always, Montreal boasts an exceptional array of options. These aren’t just any old glasses of Clamato juice with a splash of booze and a hint of Tobasco. No siree! This Canadian cocktail, invented in Calgary and stampeded its way across the territories, find some of its best mixes here in our fair city. Here’s a list of some of Montreal’s best...

Lucille’s Oyster Dive

In the humble neighborhood of NDG, this bar/restaurant, named after B.B. King’s guitar, serves a Caesar with fresh seafood and delicious olives. Facebook Page

Garde Manger

408 Rue St-Francois-Xavier Montreal, QC H2Y2T1
Who better to turn to for the best than celeb chef Chuck Hughes? Truly a Caesar of champions in both its size and flavor. Served in an old timey lager glass, it is filled to the brim. Did we mention they free pour the vodka? And we mustn’t forget to mention it comes with a giant crab claw to enjoy! Facebook Page

Nouveau Palais

281 Rue Bernard W Montreal, QC H2V4K8
Take a trip to the Mile End and sip on co-owner Jacques Seguin’s sweet and savory Caesar. Using the freshest of ingredients and nicely topped with a big dollop of horseradish. Great vibe and good music to boot! Facebook Page

3581 St Laurent Montreal, QC H2X2T6
What would a list of top MTL Caesar’s be without some mention of a hip new bar on St. Laurent? A bit pricey (a whopping $11) but it comes packed with extras. Pepperoncini, pickles, and olives oh my! This is a very Worcestershire-saucy Caesar if there ever was one. It’s popular for a 5 à 7, where house cocktails are on special and double ounces are half off. Facebook Page

Le Sainte-Élisabeth

1412 Sainte-Elisabeth Montreal, QC H2X1L4
This bar just off of St. Cats has an amazing terrasse and offers one of the most well balanced Caesars. Nicely priced at $6.25. Facebook Page


156 Roy est Montreal, QC H2W1M2
Not your average Caesar. Special ingredients include red wine, olive juice and real horseradish. This happening bar on Roy knows how to treat a beloved drink with love. At only $7 it is a sure fire tasty treat! It’s no frills, but all thrills. Facebook Page

La Salle à Manger

1302 Ave Du Mont-Royal E Montreal, QC H2J1Y5
A Caesar with a kick, their mix includes horseradish. Grade A Caesar should be spicy, if nothing else. Definitely a great aperitif and the flavors will sit on your mouth and pack a great punch. Facebook Page

Les Enfants Terribles

1257 Ave Bernard Montreal, QC H2V3M8
In their renowned Brazil Caesar, one can expect cachaça in place of vodka as a tropical interpretation of the drink. This makes the cocktail particularly potent. They also use a spicy Asian lemon to add a little sourness to the Bloody. Step aside caipirinha! Facebook Page

La Champagnerie

343 Rue Saint Paul Est Montreal, QC
Head here on Oyster Thursday when Caesars are more elaborate than ever. Served with a tiger shrimp and oyster for the occasion, this is a decadent Caesar if there ever was one. A sample concoction includes Clamato, celery salt, Smirnoff, lemon, chipotle Tabasco and Sriracha. Did we mention sometimes there’s smoked meat involved? How much more Montreal can you get?
