What do the ladies love? Wine. So what do the ladies and the guys love? Wine bars!
If you want a more relaxed spot for a few drinks before plunging into the high decibel debauchery of the Montreal nightclub or supper clubs scene, hip wine bars can be a classy way to kick off a bachelor party or other guy’s night out.
These trendy Montreal bars get things moving at a pace that’s chill with just enough thrill, engaging guys with a wide selection of wines and singles—thus providing not only a liquid but visual jump-start to the night’s revelries.
Here are 2 cool Montreal wine bars that guys love:
A relatively new ‘it spot’ of Montreal nightlife, Furco lures in clients with cool industrial-chic design, exuding a minimalism you will be pleased is far from reflected in their extensive wine selection.
As well as their slick design, Furco also brought a sense of ‘newness’ to Montreal nightlife with it’s unique placement in the middle of the convenient (yet nightlife lacking) downtown area responsible for their name, the old fur district, which Furco now heats up anew with it’s warm, inviting atmosphere. Expertly-tailored for indulging today’s young business class/pretty people, the vibe here attracts good-looking clients generally in their 20s to 30s.
Packed with Old Port charm, Philemon is trendy but laid-back, catering to an attractive mix of both dressy and casual types, mostly 20s-30s.
They have a good selection of wine and an awesome happy hour (5-7), so go early if you want a table…If you don’t get a table, make the most of the mingling with the other standers, because though Montreal bachelor party groups are warned this isn’t a ‘mannerless meat market’, it is still a pick up spot.
Quebec is the biggest wine drinking province in Canada, so you can bet there is much more check out for the discerning groom who is a wine connoisseur, such as wine bars Pullman’s, Le Comptoir Charcuteries et Vins, and many others. We can also hook you up with private wine tastings and even wine tours in the area.
