Best places for solo traveler

Hi there! I'll be in Montreal soon and have already got some great suggestions from the CHs about where to go for supper. ADPC is booked ;) I might head to Joe Beef and some others.

Since I am traveling alone, do you have suggestions for places to go after supper, for a cocktail or snack in the later evening? I know there are bars and cafes everywhere but it's hard to say what is the 'go to' place for someone alone, who enjoys a fine cocktail and bite to eat. And maybe even a bit fun?

Would appreciate any help. Thanks!

  1. I would go to "La Salle à Manger" ( good ambience, menu is similar in spirit to APdC, but a bit less excessive, and mostly not that many tourists!! I was there this past thursday and the place was packed and there was a good vibe at the bar.

    Other suggestions :
    3 petits bouchons (for the wine list), Pullman(wine bar), Lemeac (for the post 22h menu specials @ $22), Baldwin (bar), Phillps lounge (lounge), Reservoir (beer and tapas/snacks), Assommoir (for mixed drinks and foosd in Old-Montreal


    I've heard good things about the new "Taverne Square Dominion" (, but i've not been there yet.

    I haven't heard from "Joe Beef" in a while (here at least), don't know what's happening there recently.
