Dominion Square Tavern
Walk into this place in the heart of busy downtown Montreal
and you’ll feel like you’ve time-warped to the 1930s. When they took over this place, the current management restored a Montreal treasure to a former glory it probably never had, at least not to this extent. Today it’s so beloved by downtown workers, pre-movie crowds and shoppers in need of refueling that you’d best reserve ahead of time. The signature cocktails served in disparate vintage glassware are drinkable delights (the frothy Orange Julep is like the creamsicle of your dreams) while the food is typical of a classy British pub: Ploughman’s platters, Scotch eggs, watercress salad, the works. There’s even a Sunday roast.
