Downtown daiquiri?

I have developed a passion for classic daiquiris of late, and want to take some friends out for a drink after work today, somewhere on Sherbrooke St. near McGill.

Can anyone recommend a place with the requisite skill set behind the bar? I do not want to be served some slushy concoction, but the real thing.

What about Hotel Le Germain (just struck me as an option)?

    not really downtown, but Assomoir opened a new place in Old-Montreal (close to Aszu restaurant), (On Notre-Dame I think)

        The Sofitel is in the area, their bar seems quite popular.

          L'Assommoir is a bar-resto on Bernard in Mile End. Popular, though not necessarily so with its neighbours. www.assommoir.ca

            Hmmm...my old neighbourhood.
            The website is not functional.
            Which side of Park Av?

              Strange. The link works for me.

              112 Bernard West. South side of the street just west of St-Urbain.

                So very close to Whisky Café (if it still exists).
                I wonder of they do birdbath martinis. Probably not for ten bucks.

                I will probably check out their Notre Dame location.

                Has anyone been and what is the vibe?
                What type of music?

                  Le Bourgetel used to make good daiquiris; now I'm really dating myself,
                  I was a very very young girl then, lol.........

                  It seems these last few years the frozen drinks are popular, they are nothing like the originals.....
