Where to buy specialty liquor and bitters near CBD/FQ

Will be visiting your city for the first time and especially looking forward to the trying out various cocktail bars (as suggested here on on the boards).

However, considering how strict our liquor laws are in Quebec, it is impossible to get Peychaud's Bitters, Bittermans, etc as well as many liquors such as St Germain, Herbsaint, etc. We have access to great wines but in terms of liquor and bitters, we're stuck.

Maybe it's a silly question, and such products are readily available, but would like to know where I can stock up on various bitters and some non-standard liquors near the business district or french quarter. Can you purchase liquor at the pharmacies? Or do you have designated liquor stores? Can bitters be found at grocery stores?

Thank you for your help.
