Hidden behind Maison Cloakroom, a made-to-measure menswear shop in a striking century-old building on Montreal’s Golden Mile, is a chic 25-seat bar that trades in one thing and one thing only — delicious cocktails made with integrity. The Cloakroom Bar is known for its purist approach and unflinching commitment to sourcing only the highest-quality ingredients. If they can’t find a decent strawberry liqueur, they make their own. As a result, the bespoke cocktails here are a cut — or two — above your average tailor-made drink experience, especially since the bartenders are known for their uncanny ability to size up a guest and figure out the perfect concoction.
EARLY. THE BAR OPENS AT 4 P.M., PERFECT FOR A POST-LUNCH GLASS OF 30-YEAR-OLD AMARO FROM THE VINTAGE SPIRITS COLLECTION.
