BAZARETTE — a new wine bar and neighborhood café — opened in downtown Montreal on September 14. In a neat but accessible atmosphere, and close to the Bell Centre, it offers a haven where it is good to have a drink or two … or 6!


In order to revitalize the downtown offer, its creators conceived the spot as a welcoming space for all occasions and gatherings. A 5 à 7 between colleagues, a bite with friends, a dinner, a drink in the late evening.


What does ‘Bazarette’ mean?

BAZARETTE is a French term for a ‘small establishment offering a wide range of food and non-food products’; but also for ‘chatter or talk of abondance’.

It is at once the decor — the conceptual signature imagined by Sid Lee — but especially the team behind BAZARETTE which gives it a warm and friendly tone; the trio consists of chef Adam Martin (Chez l’épicier, Miel) and director Jérémie Pratte (Hélicoptère, McKiernan) who shares the signature of the wine list with general manager Charlie April (Hoogan & Beaufort, Au Pied de Cochon).

Bazarette | Wine Bar

Their wine list is made up of references in private importation resulting almost entirely from reasoned, organic or natural farming. Festive wines, to share or to keep for oneself. Also on the program are elaborately crafted cocktails featuring rare distillates and unique beers.

A menu of small and ever changing dishes, is available from 3:30PM until very late, to be consumed with or without moderation and changing with the availability of seasonal products.
