I have always loved going out to nice lounges as the ambiance is more easy-going than bars and clubs, the décor quite more sophisticated and the crowd is usually older. I have heard about Mayfair Cocktail Bar for months but never got to chance to go since it is a bit far from where I live. A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to try their tasting menu as well as a few of their cocktails! After seeing so many gorgeous pictures on their social media accounts, their website, as well as on my friends’ pictures, I had very high expectations which were all met.
Mayfair is both a cocktail bar and an alcoholic tea lounge on the Plateau Mont-Royal. Its hushed ambiance evokes the richness and the elegance of the Victorian era. Getting its inspiration from England 19th century’s bar concept, Mayfair offers alcoholic brewed teas in a very luxurious lounge. Cocktails with names such as Safran Sour, Duke of York, Daisy Twist, High Society and more bring a cosmopolitan vibe. A heavenly menu complements the tea cocktails. You will find a great selection of tea sandwiches, feuilletés, tartare, grilled cheese royal, mimosa eggs, mushroom crostini, Nutella fondue (yes you read it right!) and more. Everything is just so tasteful and melts in your mouth.
Mayfair is a real trip back in time. Just as the British Empire was greatly interested by India and its culture, Mayfair even has a private booth with Indian accents available for reservation. This lounge is a wonderful place for dates or simply to have a great time with your friends. I cannot recommend it enough!
