Sir Winston Churchill/Winnie's

1459 Crescent

Happy Hour everyday. Yes, that’s right, Sir Winston’s (or Churchill’s or Winnie’s) has their wicked two-for-one drinks special everyday from 5pm to 8pm. Walk-in on $2.50 Tuesdays and you’re sure to stumble out later on that night, as your drink of choice costs pocket change from nine to three all night long. Sir Winston’s is the kind of place that fits into a sentence such as: “Yeah man, I met her at Sir Winston’s and we went straight to …” Well known to be a pickup hotspot with their steady flow of cougars and university crowds, Churchill’s a must for anyone on Crescent.

“Funny enough, we met on a ________ at ________ on Crescent Street in Montreal,” said the lovely couple. You fill in the blanks and make it for one night or for a lifetime. Thursday’s front this hotspot as a Montreal bar at its best. The nightclub is downstairs, with the bar on the elevated ground level extending out onto the terrace. Advice to all: success rates are just as high during the day at Thursday’s, with the terrace sitting just above the frequented sidewalk.
