Drinking is more than just something we do to feel a little buzz and relax at the end of a really taxing work week. It's a social activity, plain and simple. The kind of alcohol you drink can say a lot about your personality.
There's what you drink, and how you drink it. Don't underestimate the power of a good drink in changing your mood or even sense of self. And I'm telling you, this bar in Montreal has got some faaancy drinks that will make you feel boogie AF.
There are some drinks that just change your mood the second they are held in your hand. Honestly, some drinks just complete an outfit. The little umbrellas and fancy glasses don't really do anything to the taste of the drink (actually they do nothing), but they do make drinks look more appealing, and let's face it, they make you look cool too.
There's a difference between grabbing a beer and walking around holding a fancy martini glass. And let me tell you, this bar is FULL of choices that will make you feel like you're the most important person in the room.
Montreal's Le Royal is the bar I am talking about. Now if its name doesn't already give you some insight into what I'm talking about, then its description should.
Their decor is described as "refined" which is just a fancy way of saying fancy as hell. Others have said that it makes them feel like they're living in the roaring 20s, and nothing says sophisticated like that time.
Their mixologists know what they are doing and they are dedicated to making you feel royal. They've got a huge selection of sparkling wines and champagnes, and nothing says fancy pants like them.
Located in Le Plateau at 1232 Mont-Royal Ave E, it's situated right smack in the middle of a TON of bars. So if you just want to feel fancy for a second and then go get wasted somewhere else, that is A-ok. It's also good to keep in mind that they are not open on Sundays or Mondays.
