A couple weeks ago I asked about restaurants in Montreal with good bars and found out that isn't such a strong point there. We're going to APDC Thurs. nite and I made a reservation for 9:30 at Laloux on Fri. I wondered if Fri. had any advantage over Sat. Is the full Laloux experience worth it rather than just hanging at Pops which might be more fun? And are reservations in general needed so far in advance? Sounded like Laloux was pretty open when I called last Sat.
Are the bars at the St. Sulpice or Nelligan good? Do people have thoughts on any of the following bars/clubs (keeping in mind that we like both fancy cocktails and dive bars with rock music and maybe happy hour)? Thanks.
