Fodor's Expert Review El Pequeño Bar

Old Montreal (Vieux-Montreal) Bars Fodor's Choice

El Pequeño Bar really lives up to its name: the bar seats only nine, it's that small. For all its diminutive size El Pequeño packs a big punch, having been named one of Canada's Top 50 Bars in early 2020, ranking at number 4. Adorned with an ornate glass chandelier, white marble countertops and dozens of Caribbean rum bottles behind the bar, this pocket sized spot is an homage to the 1920s Havana hotel lobby bar. Gifted cantineros (bartenders) specialize in mixing Cubanos and other rum-based cocktails while recounting tales of Ernest Hemingway in his Havana period.
