Try the new cocktail menu at Maggie Oakes

Maggie Oakes is ocated in the Old Port inside of the spectacular William Gray hotel.  Offering dishes prepared with simplicity, highlighting the finest Québec products, they recently launched their new limited edition cocktail menu, inspired by areas of Montreal.

At the launch, we had the chance to try four in preview, including the Canadian Coffee from the Mile-End (a twist on the espresso martini made with the infamous coffee from Olympico), A New Spritz from the Plateau (a fruity spritz with Saint Germain), The Yuzual from Chinatown (Asian inspired with Yuzu and sake) and the Blue Queen from the Village (Curaçao and gin). Even though the cocktails were a little bit too sweet for my taste, they seemed to please the crowd that night!

Psst, it you prefer something more on the classic side, they will be more than happy to prepare you a mean Sazerac or delicious Old Fashioned.



Get a taste of Mexico in the Old Port

Offering fresh and simple shareable dishes with an authentic taste, La Catrina is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a meal with friends and family. Located in the Old Port of Montreal, this newcomer ensures that every meal that leaves its kitchen is full of love with tasty kick. The restaurant also specializes in tequila and mezcal, with a whole cocktail menu dedicated entirely to both spirits.

Starting the end of May, they will open a taco counter, right on the backstreet of the restaurant. The place will be operational until 4am, Thursday to Saturday.
