“Great time @ Le Lab!!”
Reviewed October 16, 2013 via mobile

We went to check out this place after finding it on Trip Advisor. A little out of the way (we were staying in Old Montreal) but worth the trip. Great drinks, warm service & fun atmosphere.

“Good & original drinks, flair bartending or not.”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

At this point in my life, I don't care much for flair bartending and would rather enjoy a carefully crafted cocktail. Luckily, Le Lab is famous for the former but can easily provide the latter!
I guess we were lucky to go there on a Monday night, which was very quiet. The bartender explained that they only do the flair thing when they have a crowd for it and since the place was rather empty there was none of that, which was great for us. We really like our drinks, which were very original, using some pretty unique ingredients.
So I guess if you want to experience their awesome creations and relax, go there during the week!

“Lab - worth every minute/penny”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

If you're looking for a nice bar to relax and get a drink with friends, go to Lab! It's a cozy, clean bar, with excellent decor. The staff are fast, friendly and reliable. But don't get too comfortable, they put on FIRE SHOWS every night with alcohol and crazy drink flipping. A can't miss event.
It's definitely my favourite place to go on a friday night in MTL. love it.

Went to Le Lab over Memorial Day weekend and had a great time. Lots of original recipes, plus all of the old standards. Great bartenders, great atmosphere, great bar all around!
