Wining and Dining in Montreal

For many visitors the idea of bringing your own beer or wine to a restaurant is appealing. When compared to other cities, Montreal’s bring your own wine (BYOW) scene is not only affordable, it’s quite popular. While many other cities charge “corking fees” you won’t tend to see that here – it just won’t fly with the locals. And I for one agree. Who want’s to pay extra to bring your wine along? Not me!

Finding BYOW Restaurants

While not all restaurants are on board with the BYOW idea, there are a good many in the city that have opened doors to the idea. If you’re staying in one of our hotels near Ste. Catherines Street, there are quite a few options available to you for BYOW dining. As for places to purchase alcohol, there is a SAQ location on 865 Rue Sainte-Catherine East, within walking distance of our affordable Montreal hotel.
