WONDERFUL NIGHT AT WUNDERBAR
This being said, as the fancy extravagant persons we are, we always try to find the most outstanding places or unique ones to go out. The most original little spots where to find the most unbelievable stories to tell, or them crazy settings to have ourselves flabbergasted.
Yep, Montrealers may be renown as chillax people, but when it comes to party, we always have the best place to suggest!
As for myself, I must say I am more of a small-place kind of person, but I do love to discover some killer settings when I go out, especially when it's during a fashion event. As a media, I am often invited in ball rooms, hotel suites, fancy bars and restaurants and for having experienced many "big and crowded" venues, I must say that one of my favorite is, without a doubt, the WUNDER BAR from the W HOTEL downtown.
Every time I spent the evening there, I was received like a queen and felt like I was part of their big family. The venue may be quite popular but I never experienced it fully jam-packed and uncomfortable. It was always super cozy, with great music and a calm ambiance.
As you will see on the images bellow, the WUNDERBAR is known for it's bright light walls, constantly changing colors. I find it very fun and playful and, as bright as it may seem on the pictures, it is truly not that intense in real life (it doesn't make you feel overwhelmed or lightheaded).
The reason Elias and I spent the evening at the WUNDERBAR that night was to taste the new Fall Cocktails Menu. Luckily we got to have a sip of practically ALL the available drinks on the new menu and it was totally awesome!
But what was even better was having the chance to chat for almost one hour with Eben Klemm, incredible human being, drink artist, mixologist, and creator of the new Fall cocktails menu. Discussing flavors, drink recipes, life anecdotes, New York City vs Montréal, youth, traveling, careers, tasting experiments... all of the previous punctuated with jokes and funny quotes, it was obvious we had a blast and this meeting was memorable.
As for the Fall menu, the cocktails were on point, tasty and well composed, with a good balance between the flavors of the added components and the raw alcohol (which is way too often drown in flooding juices and sugar). Plus, the "fall" theme was well interpreted, with ingredients representing warmness, such as cinnamon, candied lemon, ginger, roasted pear syrup and many other comforting flavors.
The WUNDERBAR is always a winner destination and if you want to feel like a king in a cozy ambiance for the night, that's the place to go!
