2 Montreal Bars Just Ranked Among The 50 Best In North America
But two Toronto bars ranked higher.
Raise a glass for Montreal bars. Two local drinkeries, the Atwater Cocktail Club and Cloakroom, have made it onto the 2023 edition of the North America 50 Best Bars list, ranking 32nd and 35th, respectively.
There are a total of seven Canadian entries in the latest ranking. The U.S. leads with 28. Mexico follows with 14. Only one bar in the Caribbean made the list.
Canada's other victors are Toronto's Civil Liberties (12), Bar Pompette (15), Mother (37) and Bar Mordecai (43), along with Vancouver's Botanist Bar (19). Civil Liberties, therefore, claimed the "Best Bar in Canada" accolade.
The top 10 went to bars in the U.S. and Mexico. New York City claimed four of the top 10 spots, including first place, with bar Double Chicken Please. Second place went to Mexico City's Handshake Speakeasy.
