2. Pot Masson
Pot Masson honestly has some of the tastiest drinks in the whole city, to be totally honest with you guys. What could possibly be better than a whole mason jar filled with raspberry vodka, triple sec, and lemonade, and then garnished with a Mr. Freeze and cotton candy?
That's right, friends, nothing in the whole world. And, the best part? You get a huge mason jar full of their awesome drinks, so you're getting a super good value for your dollar. Combine that with their laid back vibe, inexpensive food, and super chill atmospher, and you've got yourself your next fave cocktail bar.
If you're a fan of cocktails, then you're going to be a huge, huge fan of Henrietta. This spot opened up not too long ago as a replacement to the well-loved Baldwin Barmacie, but it's grown to become just as awesome - and as amazing.
First of all, the cocktails here are above and beyond amazing. No drink here exceeds $15, which is some seriously good news, considering these beverages are so tasty that you're going to want to drink all. The. Drinks. An example of their beyond tasty selections? Their Millie Russel, featuring Campari, Galiano, lemon and an egg white; and their Cinq Etoiles, made with white rum, lime, mint, and more.
4. Le Mal Necessaire
To be totally honest with you guys, Le Mal Necessaire is one of my all-time favourite spots. It's super hidden, in the basement of a building in Montreal's Chinatown, which totally adds to its charm - plus, its incredibly fun and laid-back vibe helps out a little bit, as well.
Even though the drinks here tend to be on the inexpensive side, that's not even the best part. The best part, of course, is that they're served up in giant, hollow pineapples, making for a cocktail experience you won't soon forget.

This Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie bar knows what it's doing when it comes to serving up incredibly unique, fresh, and inexpensive cocktails. Honestly, if you're a true cocktail lover, you're going to want to get yourself here ASAP and try one of their mind-blowing drinks.
But although the drinks might be the main draw, once you get there, you're going to want to stay forever.

And their vibe? Honestly amazing. The crowd here is super fun, and the atmosphere is incredibly welcoming, but it is a little bit more of a classier place, making it the perfect spot for a celebration, to chill with your friends, or to impress a date. All the wins? You know it.
8. Uber Cafbar
This unassuming and seriously fun cocktail bar is situated in Montreal's Ahuntsic, so it might be a little bit of a trek for some of us - but trust me, it's well worth it. The crowd at Uber is super laid-back and all-around fun, which matches perfectly with their chill-yet-lit vibe.
And, honestly, the cocktails here are delicious AF. You're going to want to try every single drink on the menu here; which makes the fact that it's super inexpensive a serious relief, considering you'll seriously need all of these awesome drinks in your life.
