Been here several times during stays in old montreal.. The musicians were excellent on each occasion. Small place with exposed old stone walls. Relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
Attentive friendly service.
Great martinis and good selection of single malt scotch.

This is one of the most unique bars I have ever visited.
We were attracted by the red piano in the window.
The live entertainment was exceptional!
There was a dj that played amazing classic house and hiphop.
We had an amazing time!!!!

“Great band.Friendly and fun atmosphere”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

Stumbled upon this place on a recent business trip to Montreal.
Big red piano in the window. Friendly welcoming staff. Excellent martinis. Wonderful atmosphere.A small cozy place but somehow they managed to squeeze in a seven piece band including 3 horns playing an uptempo blend of what they called soul electric, acid jazz. I think they were called the Atomics. The band had great infectious energy and everyone was having a great time, whether up dancing or sitting down and just tapping their feet.

If this place used to be a hip jazz bar it ain't any more. Total tourist trap. This is not where real music fans go to hear great music. Save your money!

It would be useful to everyone if you clarified exactly what aspects of the bar you did not like.

We have an exceptional friendly and efficient staff
Our music rooster often include world class musicians such as Jose James, Lorraine Klassen, Slim Williams, Obed Calvaire etc

Although we have only been in existence for less than two (2) years, we recently received recognition as one of the top music venues in the 2012 Montreal Mirror annual survey

We are far from being a "tourist trap" as our clients are mostly local and our prices are relatively low for the Old Montreal area.
