A brand-new speakeasy tucked within a Mile End alleyway is due to open this month and will offer a festive happy hour concept within a unique, hidden space.

Casa Kaki will officially opens its doors on May 18, 2023. The speakeasy is located behind the bistro-boutique of Franck Maison Gourmande — patrons will walk alongside the kitchen and pass through a golden sequinned curtain directly into an inviting environment with soft tunes, drinks driven by a privately imported wine list and a menu that can lean complex or decadent.

The speakeasy can also be accessed via the alley behind 5439 boul. Saint-Laurent.

The venue will showcase "privately imported natural and organic wines, craft beers and a variety of plates made for sharing, all in a relaxed urban environment," the speakeasy noted in a press release shared with MTL Blog.

The menu is set to include a number of homemade dishes including cod fritters with spicy lime mayo, poultry terrine with apricots and pistachios, gravlax, burrata with a carrot orange and fennel marmalade, mozzarella waffles with sun-dried tomatoes, and lobster nachos.

The speakeasy is slated to host a number of special events throughout the summer including live music and DJ sets. Those looking for an elevated 5 à 7 experience can also partake in evening wine tastings with sommeliers from private import agencies, all while noshing on assorted bites.
