La Champagnerie Montreal Grand OpeningPosted By Jennifer Ho Jun 24 2013 · 0 comments · Events, Old Montreal
La Champagnerie is a bar with a flair for the dramatic. Treating its clientele to a show, the bar is quickly becoming known for its method of uncorking champagne by sabrage. For those of you are not familiar with the method, YouTube that ASAP. Yeah, I bet you want to see that live now, don’t you?
Using a variety of raw materials and contrasting elements like copper, glass and polished wood, the bar goes for a sort of rustic chic vibe with a bit of vintage thrown in. The concept behind the champagne bar as the director of operations, Sebastien Piekutowski describes it is as follows: “The idea behind La Champagnerie stems from the popular La Champagneria bar in Barcelona that offers Cava (Spanish sparkling wine for 5 euros a bottle) and brilliantly combines simplicity, versatility and fun. We want to democratize what champagne is commonly known for and offer Montrealers a unique unpretentious space with an incredible variety of bubbly at all different price points and flavours”.
I’ll drink to that.
