What you'll do

Located in an up and coming borough of Montreal called Pointe-St-Charles, we will start by visiting one of Montreals best Pizzeria's called Fugazzi. Be prepared for authentic, delicious yet modern pizza as we will enjoy a couple of slices before our spirit tasting! We will quickly meet the chefs, watch them make a pizza or 2 and venture upstairs to their hidden bar called Milky Way through the blacklit stairs with infinity mirrors to their open concept fully skylit speakeasy vibe bar.

Once upstairs, we will have a comfortable booth reserved for us (or we can sit at the bar if the group prefers!) We will then proceed to taste 4-6 different types of Rum, Gin and Absinthe (2 types of each). I will describe the product, where its from and what tastes you should find in the product. I will also explain how to properly taste spirits!

You can expect an all around good time which includes fine product tasting, good food, an authentic local experience and great company

Hi ! My name is Andrea and my whole life revolves around hospitality, food and drink! My passion is to meet new people and make sure they have a real locally curated experience. I used to work at Airbnb in the Montreal offices but left to be closer to my guests and have that human contact. My partner owns 6 restaurants and bars in Montreal and I work for him doing everything Human Resource related such as hiring, events, etc. On my free time, I like to discover new restaurants, bars, and spend time with my "work family" which are all in the restaurant business!

Where you'll be

We will be visiting a wonderful, eclectic, punk rock, foodie pizzeria called Fugazzi. It has an open kitchen, a bar and the most awesome decor ever. It is classy and upscale yet laid back and delicious.

Most of our time will be spent at a speakeasy bar called Milky Way which is right upstairs from Fugazzi Pizza. This beautiful bar has a full skylight for the ceiling and velvet banquettes. I dont want to say too much or Ill spoil the surprise !

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 21 reviews.

Great activity during our visit in Montreal. We got to visit nice, cool local restaurant and bar that we would never known about them. We got great seats at a lively bar. Andrea is a great host and very accommodating. We had a great time. Good food, great drinks and got to meet new friends. Highly recommended!

It was a good time with Andrea and the group. Andrea took us first to a speakeasy then to the restaurant where we had out main course then a final one for dessert. She explained the reasons she chose the places she chose and the dishes she ordered. It was all delicious.

Andrea’s food and spirits tour was fantastic! I got the tour as a little Christmas surprise for my partner, and he loved it. We both had so much fun and ate extremely well. I recommend going on the tour early on in your trip - first or second night: a) because you’ll definitely want to return to the bars and restaurants later on in your stay b) because you might make friends and hang out with them later on during you stay in MTL! Can’t wait to come back to Montreal and do this tour again!!

The experience was amazing! Our host Lamia did a fantastic job at choosing a location that warm and welcoming to the group. We instantly connected and had a wonderful time learning about the community, the culture, the food and the various drinks. I strongly recommend this experience.
