We were there on a Sunday night and had a great time. Rarely had so good drinks, especially their Castro Flambe is superb. Diverse, laid-back people, and extremly friendly staff. Had an interesting conversation with the bumper, and learned a lot about Montreal and French Canadian culture. Prices are not too high for the quality of this bar.

They have quite an extensive cocktail list, all of which, are pleasantly creative with at least 6 ingredients and served in a mason jar. Just note that they do not serve food, so eat before, you can easily stay all night trying all the cocktails with friends!

Visited La Distillerie a few times whilst visiting Montreal in September. Great extensive list of cocktails, and barman happy to make anything else for you if requested!! Even the gent on the door was lovely and friendly. Good venue, nice atmosphere... and strange chilli caramel popcorn! Worth a visit, and would definitely return :)

So glad to hear you had a good time with us, and even took the time to come visit more than once! You're right, our popcorn is a little strange... but that's part of its charm, isn't it? :) Hope to see you again! Cheers! More

Such a cool little bar, with amazing cocktail-makers (or whatever their offfical title is). Visited on a Sunday evening to avoid the friday and saturday business. Best cocktails i've ever had, free sample shots at the bar, and cool staff. Check it out.

We went to la Distillerie at 5:30PM on a Saturday, and had a great time. There's a happy hour on Saturdays until 7PM, so the drinks were less expensive ($14 instead of $17 for the large coctails). Drinks: Great recipes! The drinks are really fun, creative mixed drinks. There's a page just for their mixed drinks in small or large... More

It's always a pleasure to get our cocktails in a huge jar! The list of available cocktails is impressive and, if far from being cheap, at least they're made with quality ingredients. The waiter was friendly and we enjoyed our evening at La Distillerie. We'll be back! Just a note: plan to arrive early as the place if often packed.... More

Great, fun and exciting concept. Lots of choices and really good drinks. Very hip and crowded place to hang out. Unfortunately they were not adequately staffed. We only had one drink. We waited about 30 minutes after finishing our first drink and left. Several times a waitress walked by and said she would be right back. Also they wouldn't let... More

We decided to venture over to this bar after a recommendation from a friend while we were visiting Montreal. It's mind blowing! The cocktail list is insane... some super unique drinks as well as the traditional favorites. We had to wait in line for quite a while to get in, the bar is quite small and I think I heard... More

Hi there! We're so happy you had a good time with us! :) Sorry about the wait to get in... we do have 2 more locations in Montreal (which are quite a bit bigger) so if ever you come by again, it may be worth avoiding the line by visiting our other locations. We look forward to seeing you again! More
