Midway Tavern on Montreal's Saint-Laurent Street just at the corner of Saint-Catherines is a place that many of you as well as us have never stepped foot in because well it certainly did not look appealing at the time.
Those days are behind us now because this week Midway Tavern is re-opening its doors and taps to the public after one helluva extensive make over that looks out of this world.
For a place that first broke ground in 1927 and witnessed 20 Montreal Canadiens Stanley Cup Parades, the opening of the Montreal Metro and Expo 67, we gotta say hooray because old city landmarks like this do have a place and do not always need to be torn down for condos.
There will be an official 5 a 7 tomorrow July 10th which you can go and check out the new diggs and absorb all the fine work put into making the place look great.
A Bombay spokesperson described the maze as a "large-scale [...] whimsical oasis" with walls that "cloak the discoverable experiences within."
The maze installations are being created by Quebec's Charlie Larouche (Glassware Artist), Jeroen Kleijn (DJ & Olfactory Artist) and Chantal Royer (Botanical Artist) who were inspired by the taste of Bombay Bramble, a new naturally-flavoured raspberry and blackberry gin.
The experience will be completely free, and anyone over the age of 18 can take part.
In addition to a Bombay Bramble sample, guests will leave with a signature Bombay Sapphire Balloon Glass that they can use to stir up fun drinks at home.
