Overview

Spring 2005, La Distillerie No.1 first saw the day in Montreal, at the corner of Ontario and Sanguinet streets, in the heart of the vibrant Latin Quarter. Founded on a unique concept with the help of a passionate team, La Distillerie sought to introduce its guests to the universe of cocktails. In order to reach more people, we opened two more establishments on the Plateau Mont-Royal and in Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie. We aim to serve a high-quality product in a cozy and convivial atmosphere. Beyond preparing and serving cocktails, we want to create spaces where people can come together and connect, and where you can feel good regardless of your age, where you're from, and whether you've chosen to wear your jogging pants or your bowtie to go out. Whether it's your first or hundredth visit, it'll be a pleasure for us to make you a custom beverage, so don't hesitate to put us to the test!

We visited La Distillerie in April as it was recommended online. We went early (around 7.30pm) and had to wait around 25 minutes to get in. I can see why as the bar is great! Definitely worth the wait. We sat at the bar and...More

Excellent drinks, a little bit of a wait outside but completely 10000% worth it. The waitstaff was nice and attentive, the music was great, and the atmosphere was fabulous. Would recommend it to anyone staying in Montreal!

Thanks so much! :) We're sorry about the wait, we wish we could accommodate more guests but our space is quite small! We do have 2 more locations in Montreal which tend to be a little bit less crowded. Cheers!

Fun drinks at a reasonable price considering the amount of work that goes into them. We both really enjoyed the drink selections and friendly bartenders. Would visit again while in Montreal!

We arrived in Montreal at about Midnight and were directed here by a cool server at Saint Houblon. The atmosphere and drinks were great and the servers and bartender made the experience very enjoyable.
