This has traditionally been one of the best known of Montréal’s boîtes-à-chansons (song clubs), but its more visible personality these days is as a sports bar. The sports posters are what you’ll mostly see when you walk by, but look for the smaller posters of musicians. On Friday and Saturday nights, a French-style cabaret still brings in singers who interact animatedly, and often bilingually, with the crowd. Arrive by 9pm or make a reservation because tables can fill up.
