Bar Le Mal Nécessaire

Montreal – April 2019

I don’t think you can order something called a Bahama Mama and a Pina Colada and not have a good time!

Bar Le Mal Nécessaire is located down in a basement underneath Montreal’s historic Chinatown. If you are looking for a out of the way place to get a tropical cocktail poured with a heavy hand then this place is for you.

We stopped by early in the night on our way to dinner so there were lots of booths, tables and bar stools to choose from.

After reviewing the extensive menus, all in French by the way, we decided on some Fruity Cocktails served in fruit 🙂

Let’s start with the Pina Colada, two types of rum, Leblon Cachaça, pineapple, Creme De Noix De Coco, Citron, Chicha Morada and Amers Au Chocolat make this version a special treat. As someone who loves this drink I have to say that this one was right up there with the best of them. Served in a coconut and garnished with an orchid, one sip and you will find yourself dreaming of a sandy beach and surf boards.

Onto the Bahama Mama 🙂 Bacardi Black, Tia Maria, pineapple, Eau De Noix De Coco and Citron and served in a whole pineapple make this both a delicious and refreshing drink but also a spectacle which I must admit adds to the experience. A slight twist on the original and a must try.

Next time you are in Montreal, check out Bar Le Mal Nécessaire but be careful you don’t pass it by. Other than a small sign out front you may miss this little piece of Tiki in Montreal’s’ Chinatown.
