For a change from the nearby Notre-Dame-des-Quilles on Beaubien, this favorite neighborhood pub on Boulevard Saint-Laurent is great for a lively ambiance any day of the week. In fact, on most nights after 5 pm you’ll have to way for a table. They are dedicated to promoting locally produced brews and flavours, serving a whopping 36 choices of local beers on tap or in casks, as well as Quebec-produced ciders, spirits and wines. They also have decent pub fare to wash down too, with a focus on local purveyors too. Try the fries.
