Our suggestions for your fall gatherings among our restobar partners

It is in a formally vacant location, once occupied by a retired factory, where Nicolas Hamel, owner of Mme Lee and the Ping Pong club, established the Riverside. The bar is truly a colourful oasis in an industrial décor, situated next to 2 silos which are covered in graffiti. The owners invited the Montreal based artist Le Bicar to decorate the walls which are also covered in plants. During the summer, a magnificent exterior terrace invites its clients to appreciate a beautiful view on the water. From yoga classes, to corporate receptions or to private events, many exciting events are on the calendar for the upcoming year.

Mister HÀ would have been proud of his Plateau restaurant which just opened a brand new location, this time to satisfy its guests in the Old Port of Montreal. The first establishment’s formula has been reproduced in the new location once occupied by L’appartment which was redecorated by Amlyne Philips (Kampai Garden, Jatoba and Kozu). The style is clean and polished while the few decorative elements remind us of bia hoi, small restaurants that can be found in Vietnam. The menu is based on a palate inspired from south-East Asian flavours accompanied by a variety of festive cocktails.

Kozu opened its doors this summer in the location once occupied by Rachel Rachel. It is one of Group A5’s most recent projects, who are also behind the creations of Flyjin, Jatoba, HÀ and KampaÏ Garden, among many others. They entrusted the design to the local- and highly in demand designer Amlyne Phillips, who signs off on many of their different establishments’ decors. We can find an “Asian brewery” style menu, accompanied by a brilliant cocktail menu and an interesting offer of sakes.
