Spring 2005, La Distillerie No.1 first saw the day in Montreal, at the corner of Ontario and Sanguinet streets, in the heart of the vibrant Latin Quarter. Founded on a unique concept with the help of a passionate team, La Distillerie sought to introduce its guests to the universe of cocktails. In order to reach more people, we opened two more establishments on the Plateau Mont-Royal and in Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie. We aim to serve a high-quality product in a cozy and convivial atmosphere. Beyond preparing and serving cocktails, we want to create spaces where people can come together and connect, and where you can feel good regardless of your age, where you're from, and whether you've chosen to wear your jogging pants or your bowtie to go out. Whether it's your first or hundredth visit, it'll be a pleasure for us to make you a custom beverage, so don't hesitate to put us to the test!

I enjoyed this place during my visit to Montreal. It was a Sunday around midnight and still people are hanging out. We ordered few drinks and they were all great. We also played cards which made it extra fun.

We needed to wait 30 minutes before entering the pub, the staff was overwhelm and their drinks are really expensive, but it is worth it: their drinks are fabulously good! If you ask for it, they will give you Goldfish Crackers for free.
