Bar Cloakroom

Centre Ville
Craft Cocktails

The 25-seat Bar Cloakroom hidden inside a stately 19th-century building in downtown Montreal (it also houses a barber and a menswear shop—the entrance to the bar is hidden behind a mirrored wall in the store) is Mad Men meets film noir, with dark painted walls, herringbone wood floors, and framed portraits of hipster male heroes like Serge Gainsbourg. Come for the intrigue, stay for the bespoke drinking experience: Just name some ingredients you enjoy and the barkeep will take care of the rest.
