Is it ever good news when someone asks what your sign is? Horrible pick up lines aside, astrology can actually be a super fun way to get to know other people... and maybe even a little bit more about yourself. Or at least a bit more about where you should go drinking tonight. Don't believe in astrology? That's cool. Technically you've just gained a list of 12 awesome places to go drinking in Montreal, you lucky non-believer, you. For the rest of us, find your sign and read on for The Perfect Montreal Bars According To Your Zodiac Sign.
1. Aries (March 21-April 19):
Aries are generally said to be the impulsive, courageous risk-takers. They like adventure. And what could be more adventurous than a night out at Chez Serge? Mechanical bull, anyone?
2. Taurus (April 20-May 20):
Taurus are calm and patient, but a little stubborn. We're calling Dieu du Ciel for the Taurus in your life. DDC's chill atmosphere is a perfect match for a Taurus' calm and down-to--earth personality. Plus you always know you're getting some of the most on-point beers Montreal has to offer. Great for the Taurus' loyal nature, and also for the Taurus' loyal drinking buddies.
3. Gemini (May 21-June 20):
Gemini are versatile and lively, with a tendency to get bored easily. Translation: the Gemini in your life might be great, but they might also be that friend who disappears an hour into the night, only text you later on from a bar on the other side of the city. Solution? Take your Gemini friends to La Distillerie Its upbeat atmosphere is a guaranteed match for Gemini's lively personality, and with three different locations you can go to a different one every week.
4. Cancer (June 21-July 22):
Intuitive and dependable, Cancer are most often found looking after their tipsy friends and making sure everyone gets home okay. Give these people a break and take them to Nyks Bistro Pub. The chill and cozy vibes are a perfect match for Cancer, who tend to dislike dense crowds and enjoy focusing more on a close knit group of friends. Plus, Nyks is a pretty much consistently fun. Which is great for every zodiac sign, if you ask us.
5. Leo (July 21-August 21):
Probably the most confident and creative sign, it's going to take a little more than a run-of-the-mill pub to keep your Leo friends happy. We recommend Le Lab. With their innovative cocktails (looking at you, Jerky Lab Jack) and knowledgable staff, the Leo in your life will feel right at home. They might even strike up a conversation, as most confident Leo tend to do.
6. Virgo (August 22-September 23):
Anyone who knows a Virgo knows that it's going to take a pretty awesome bar to impress them. Luckily, Big In Japan fits the bill. The dark yet gorgeous decor will appeal to you Virgo’s modest but meticulous nature. And their drinks are so on point that there’s basically nothing for the critical Virgo to comment about. Win-win? Win-win.
7. Libra (September 24-October 23):
This urbane, romantic and sociable sign needs a place that’s just as balanced worldly as they are. Enter Pullman. a charming and suave wine bar with all the luxury that Libra tend to love. Bonus points for just being a wine bar. You can never get enough wine in your life.
8. Scorpio (October 24-November 22):
Scorpio are all about passion. They also tend to be the people without filters, who aren’t afraid to call it like it is. For our Scorpio friends, we recommend Dominion Square Tavern. The fun and vibrant atmosphere is a perfect fir for the Scorpio’s exciting character, and they’ll be raving for days about the amazing food and drinks.
9. Sagittarius (November 23-December 22):
Two words: Bily Kun. Sagittarius are good-natured and love having fun, so we can’t think of a better place for them than this whimsical and popular bar. Don't let the amount of people who go there turn you off. Sagittarius love a crowd.
10. Capricorn (December 23-January 20):
For our prudent and practical Capricorn friends, a trip to Baldwin Barmacie might be just what the doctor ordered. Although Capricorns tend to be a little disciplined and can bury themselves in their work more than most other signs, they can still party with the best of them when they want to. And Baldwin's on point cocktails and Mad Man ish vibe will have them feeling comfortable enough to do just that.
11. Aquarius (January 21-February 19):
If 'cool' had an astrological sign, this would be it. Aquarius are undoubtedly the most chill of the zodiac signs, and to match their aloof-yet-friendly vibe, there's no better place than the equally aloof-yet-friendly Clébard.
12. Pisces (February 20-March 20):
Pisces tend to be ruled by nostalgia and imagination. You can probably already guess where we're going with this. There is nothing that brings back the waves of nostalgia quite like candy, and nowhere that serves up a better adult version of our favourite slushies than Candi Bar. Extra points for Candi Bar's unique decor, which will fit in just fine with Pisces' imaginative nature.
