This Hidden Ice Bar In Montreal Is Colder Than Your Ex's Heart & Stocked With Vodka
- At Cyr restaurant in St-Henri, you can sip on vodka in a basement ice bar.
- It's a great date idea if you can't make it to Quebec City's famous ice hotel and bar this year.
One of the things I love most about our city is that there is always something out of the box to experience. There is an abundance of cool bars to check out but nothing comes close to what Cyr has to offer. If Montreal wasn’t cold enough for you, this St-Henri restaurant, complete with a bar made of ice, is like a smaller, local version of the famous ice hotel and bar in Quebec City.
We are Canadians living in Montreal, we can handle the cold. So, instead of avoiding it this winter, why not embrace it and amplify it — while enjoying some vodka, that is.
On the outside Cyr, named after local strongman and legend Louis Cyr, looks like a typical, trendy Montreal club.
But enter and discover the extraordinary.
Though — well, freezing — the freezer room is stocked with liquor to keep you warm. This chic cocktail bar specializes in delicious, cool drinks.
Complement your samples of vodka with some oysters at the ice bar for the ultimate, chic experience.
This ice haven below the restaurant will have you forgetting about the cold and remind you that winter isn’t so bad when there is vodka involved!
If the cold gets to be too much for you, guests can warm up in the “regular” temperature room while noshing on comfort dishes like fried chicken and even fried truffle mac & cheese.
The restaurant section offers a simple, fun menu with items ranging between $13 and $26.
Access to the bar is $30.
But for $99, you can get access to the ice bar, a menu découverte, cocktails, and 3 vodka samples.
If you are looking for a cool activity to do with friends, or an epic date night idea, then the ice bar at Cyr is for you! It will even provide you with warm jackets, so you don't freeze!
