This Local Speakeasy Created An Outdoor Oyster Bar & It's The Most MTL Thing Ever

One of Montreal's favourite bars, Le Speakeasy, has gifted the city with one of the most Montreal things this holiday season: an outdoor oyster bar at Atwater's Christmas Village.

Because bars and restaurants continue to remain closed due to Quebec's red zone protocols, the bar decided to get into the spirit in another way.

"We immediately thought of oysters because at the restaurant Le Speakeasy we are well known for our oyster evenings and since the restaurant is closed we wanted to make a wink at who we are," says Nicolas Delrieu, owner of Le Speakeasy.

You can get a plate of six oysters for $15 or a plate of twelve for $28.

And if you feel like taking this holiday party home, you can buy a case of unopened oysters for $40.

Don't worry about the cold, though — cups of delicious clam chowder are also available for purchase.

The village is open every weekend until December 20.

Hope everyone has a shucking good holiday season!
