Vices&Versa is a great hang out in the Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie borough. Easily reachable by bus 55, by bike or a short walk away from the Beaubien station, this bistro and microbrewery offers you a wide variety of beers, local wines, ciders, scotch and food. I really like to try out different beers and they have a skilled staff, so you can certainly ask them for a drink that fits your taste. When it comes to food, I recommend their fries, poutines and tacos.
There’s a lot of seating, but it often gets crowded, especially on weekend nights, so you might want to hit this beautiful bar a little early. If it can get noisy inside, the outdoor terrace in the back is one of my favourite spots when the weather gets warmer (although they do have a few heating lamps for when it’s cold). Now and then, they invite musicians (mostly on Sundays) and organise small events or beer tastings.
