Baldwin’s Barmacie

cocktail1115 Avenue Laurier West – Plateau Mont-Royal, Laurier metro.
I discovered this place about two years ago. One of my very good friends from university suggested that we could go have drinks and have a good time at a lounge called Baldwin’s Barmacie.

At that time, I had never heard about that place before but still decided to give it a try. Good thing I did because it has been my favorite lounge since then!

Baldwin’s is a small/medium classy-hip lounge in Montreal. People usually go there to have drinks and to catch up, to have a good time or to go on a date. What I like the most about this place is the theme that makes this lounge so original and amazing. As you might notice in its very name, the word Barmacie refers to the concept of the mix between a bar and a pharmacy; a place where one conceives, makes and hands out cocktails. The ambiance and interior design of this lounge are as classy as the word Barmacie would suggest.
When you enter, the decor is made to give the impression of a commercial establishment composed by a very white-centered color look, with unique amber lighting giving a romantic glow and white and champagne colored counters. On the walls behind the bar, you can see high shelves filled with empty old-fashioned pharmaceutic-looking glass bottles. The space is pretty open, you don’t have a division of any kind. You can either take a seat near the bar, sit down by the high tables near the door or sit in the bench-couch at the back.
BaldwinsThe price range is a bit pricey (tthe least expensive drink is about 10-11$), but the cocktails you get in return are exceptional. There is a great variety of alcohol used to satisfy everyone’s taste. They also have a hybrid food menu with a mix of french and english dishes, typical of the french-english Montreal culture. The presentation of the drinks and the food is very well made. The music is very tasteful, depending on the nights you can hear indie music, underground electronic, old hip-hop, instrumental and much more. The service is very good as well. Even though it gets packed very fast from 10pm to the early hours in the morning, the bartenders are always there to serve you and to take good care of you.
I absolutely recommend this place to anyone! If you want to have drinks for any kind of occasion, Baldwin’s Barmacie is such a lovely place to go to! You won’t regret your decision at all. I never heard any complaints about this lounge. So now it’s up to you to go there and make your very own opinion and review of this place 😉
