    Variety of beers was insane and they were all really good, 5 stars for that. Sadly the service was painstakingly slow, so cannot give full 5 stars.

    Feels like a fun dive bar inside but with a top-notch cocktail program. We wish we had one back home because we would be regulars!

    To call my experience at Upstairs Jazz Club as life changing would be the understatement of the century. I strolled out of this heavenly site with a newfound respect for life. The exquisite food in tandem with the marvelous service and angelic music truly made my vacation in Quebec a trip to remember. I was surprised to find my favorite jazz artist, Lil Durk, on stage spitting some of the most inspirational and blessed lyrics I’ve had the pleasure to experience! I’d like to give a special thanks to the waiting and kitchen staff for putting up with my unusual requests. Even the workers at hooters politely declined when I asked for my food to come in a cup and my water on a plate. The lovely gentlemen and gentlewomen showed hardly any judgement and complied. My favorite part was when I noticed that my idols - Dr Michael “Moreburgers” Morbius and Gru - were dining next to me, discussing the Stranger Things Season 4 finale. I was able to get their autographs, some selfies, and even a video of them saying their respective catch phrases: “It’s Morbin time” and “It’s Gru-in time!” If I could give Upstairs Jazz Club 10 stars I would. Eating here during your time in Montreal is a must.

    We had just arrived in Montreal from the UK and it was our first night in Canada. Our tour manager brought us here for welcome drinks - what a fab place.

    Great atmosphere particularly when the guys started to play guitar. Paid for a request of Clapton - well he was so good like the real thing. The live music is great in here and the staff were very friendly and welcoming.

    Arnold, our fluid-handed bartender, was talented, friendly & fun to watch as he created his works of tasty art (cocktails). Highly recommend this entertaining bar/restaurant. Music is good. Decor=modern & funky. Food=good.

    We had some really good drinks here and the service was fantastic. The staff here are very friendly and make some of the best cocktails in Montreal. We would recommend the drinks made inside fruits - they are pricey but very tasty and large. My wife really enjoyed the Chinese cocktail with five spice and our friend had a couple of good cocktails. It takes a bit to get a cocktail but it is worth the wait.

    We stopped in here for a drink before our dinner reservations down the street. Tasty cocktails, knowledgeable bartender and a cool vibe.

    Stopped here for drinks on the way out from our hotel, excellent cocktails, great G & Ts and the service was spot on and the bar was one of the nicest we’ve been in on our trip to Montreal.

    The show lasted much longer than I expected, and so worth seeing! Great exotic, non-traditional, non-conservative, fun entertainment. Highly recommend!

    Great gem of a bar. Each drink is customized to your alcohol and taste profile. I went from a bright vodka based drink to a more complex earthy tequila forward second cocktail. The servers are friendly, know their liquors and specialize in making their own handcrafted bitters that pack a punch of flavor without watering down the drink. The bar is small with maybe 10 seats at the bar and 15 -20 more at the long banquette with dark lacquered walls. You feel like you are in a secret lair or speakeasy.

    Cool bar with interesting decor and a rock/punk vibe. Spacious inside and large outdoor space. Cheap drinks that you can order at the bar or sit at a table for service.

    Some games but there should be a time limit - my friend wanted to play foosball but there were some table hogs.

    The best thing about this European-styled pub is the outdoor patio which has the feel of a hidden garden with its high walls covered with climbing vines. From the street, you would never guess you would find this gorgeous terrace on the other side! It is a wonderful ambience from which to enjoy drinks during nice weather.

    With several microbrews to choose from, good service, and a relaxing vibe, it ended up being one of our favorite spots to check out during our trip to Montréal!

    The view of Montreal from this terrace is spectacular! The vibe is so fun! Don't try to order any food past 8:30PM or drinks past 10PM, though! the kitchen closes surprisingly early, and even the bar shuts down sooner than you would expect!

    A small intimate pub in the party district of Montreal. Not only are Natasha and Neil extremely friendly, but the clientele we met in 2 consecutive visits made the entire experience one to cherish. Highly recommend.
    Especially if you enjoy an amazing selection of single malt Scotch.
