What better way to escape the heatwave then spending a day enjoying delicious drinks at the first ever Montreal CocktailFest — a gathering of the best cocktail bars under the roof of the majestic St-James Theatre — on Sunday, July 8th.

This all-day festival will celebrate twenty of Montreal’s premier bars, each serving two signature creations, such as; Bar Le Jockey | Boho | Bootlegger | Bord’elle | Kampai Garden | Knox Taverne | L’Assommoir | Le Bird Bar | Les Enfants Terribles | Mayfair | Santos Tapas Bar | Soubois, to name but a few.

But don’t fret about drinking on an empty stomach since you’ll be able to pair your cocktail tastings with scrumptious bites from the Les Enfants Terribles restaurant station. As Montreal CocktailFest founder, Juan Cabrera explains:

Montreal CocktailFest aims to facilitate the discovery of cocktails in all of its forms to cocktail-lovers throughout the city. It also allows Montreal’s premier bars to showcase and celebrate their very best creations, in a socially responsible environment, all under one roof!
