With bars reopening across Montreal, there are some things you need to know about before heading out for a cocktail. Along with the government's established health and safety rules, some establishments are implementing their own policies that customers should respect if they want to have a good time. Like most reopened businesses, Montreal bars have strict rules in place to keep you and their employees safe from harm.\nWe spoke to the co-owner of two of Montreal's most popular bars: Atwater Cocktail Club and Milky Way to find out more about what bar owners want you to know about going out right now.\nAs part of Groupe Barroco, one of the largest bar and restaurant groups in the city, both establishments got through the lockdown with lots of support but seriously felt its effects.\nOfficially reopened since the end of June, both bars have seen a return to business marked by an influx of customers.\nWith safety rules in place, the reasonable expectation is that all customers will follow them.\nThere's a lot to consider under the current rules, so here are a few things the co-owner at two of the city's most popular bars wants you to know.\nThis interview has been condensed and edited for clarity.\nDo you think you can survive under the current rules?\nYes but it’s going to require a lot of adjustments and adapting to hard work and patience. We have a strong team that wants to put all the passion and energy into keeping our bars and the industry strong while being responsible and careful of the health measures.\nView this post on Instagram tonight 🔮 . . . . #acc #atwatercocktailclub #mtl #montreal #cocktail #sthenri #foiegwa #love #mtlfood #mtlfoodie A post shared by Atwater Cocktail Club (@atwatercocktailclub) on Jun 26, 2020 at 8:33am PDT\nAre there concerns with reopening?
