I'm looking to head to Montreal, probably next fall, so I'm in the early stages of planning my culinary adventure. I've found several suggestions for dining options (although I'm always open for more suggestions), but what I haven't found is a good place (or places) for cocktails.
Coming from Los Angeles (so you know my point of reference), I've been getting very into classic (and twists on classic) cocktails, especially cocktails using dark spirits. Trying to put some perspective, I've got 8 different bourbons, 4 sweet vermouths and 6 rye whiskey options in my home bar.
I don't tend to prefer loud spaces, though I'm not necessarily opposed. I tend to prefer somewhat more quite areas, food is optional, but good cocktails are a must. Any ideas? Does it just not exist in Montreal?
