PUB Burgundy Lion

The word pub is derived from the term public house. A public house was traditionally a meeting spot that could serve as a center for the community as much as the local church. Burgundy Lion immerses itself in the community to re-create that sense of comfort but with a modern twist. The concept behind the design and feel of Burgundy Lion is to blend a traditional British pub with a modern lounge bar and to offer a unique twist on British pub cuisine. Burgundy Lion is a modern English pub with traditional English cuisine mixed with a more laid back, quintessentially Montreal feel.



The Burgundy Lion has developed one of the most complete and enviable whisky programs in the country or even the world. Along with accumulating the largest collection of whisky in the province and serving more single malt than anyone else in the nation, we have developed a public and private tasting program, that focuses on introducing whisky to the uninitiated and offers uisgeophiles an opportunity to sample rare and unique whiskies. The Burgundy Lion hosts tastings open to the public six or seven times during the year and offers private tastings by reservation.
