Buying Glassware/Barware in Montreal

Hello Friends,

I am looking to purchase the "correct" barware for a number of different beers/cocktails for my home-bar.

Is there a store in Montreal that would have all my needs in one place? I will be looking for:
Pilsner glass

As well as a variety of cocktail glasses.

Can anyone recommend a restaurant supply place, maybe, that would be friendly toward small orders?

Thanks in advance.

  1. There will probably not be a store with _everything_ you want.

    For glassware (mostly wine and spirits, have not seen a large selection of speciality beer glasses:
    12 degré en Cave (st-laurent blvd, and I think a second location)
    Vinum (city-councilor, downtown)

    For restaurant supply, in Montreal, there's Monas (parc ave.); I assume if they do not have everything in stock they will order for you.

    (there's also a store in Laval, but the name eludes me right now).

      I agree, I can't think of anywhere in Montreal that will have all those sub-types. When we wanted authentic British pint glasses we purchased them online from the USA. However, postage was costly and was roughly the price of the whole order. I would try investigating places across the border that you could drive to, in order to save on postage.

        Could the Laval store you're thinking of be Vin & Passion in the Centropolis?

        1. re: Maximilien

          Vinum does have a great selection of glass other than wine glasses

          Otherwise, i know that crate and barrel have a good selection of glasses as well, this is what they offer online with shipping to canada in terms of beer glasses

        2. Desprès Laporte is another alternative, though not the store Maximilien has in mind (I think that one's around the Cosmodome). They are a restaurant supply so they can order as well.

          1. I never used them, but you might give Empire Crockery a try:

            1. Linen Chest downtown has a barware section. I doubt they have all of that, and I find the store to be expensive in general, but you know, just another suggestion if you happen to pass by it...
