Well and hip for some years now in a city that sees clubs and bars come and go quicker than J-Lo lovers, the Jello Bar is what you might call a running success. Boasting a nice, loungey atmosphere that can easily transmute into a wild and infectious party, Jello Bar offers refined entertainment for a mid-to-late twenties crowd. Amidst an array of sophisticated martinis, reverberating lounge music, and an eclectic and attractive clientele, one sort of fades back at first and then is awakened by the increasingly exhilarating action on the dance floor. On weekends the party can be excessive and overwhelm some fainter patrons, but it surely never becomes crass or vulgar. Those however, who look for a somewhat calmer night are advised to visit during the week, perhaps on a Tuesday or a Thursday. Similar to GoGo Lounge, it seldom disappoints, and even the celebrities agree.

Before closing a few years back, Jello was very poorly managed. HOWEVER, since re-opening in 2009, Jello has stayed true to its funky and retro look while bringing the experience up a notch with a fresh new team and a new management! The staff is always very friendly and makes you feel right at home and the Martinis are great! Trying to escape the jet set and stuck-up crowd who attend a lot of venues in downtown Montreal, I really enjoyed the fact that at Jello has a non-pretentious vibe. People of every age group (but mainly a more mature and professional crowd ranging from about 25_45) and of various cultural backgrounds meet here to enjoy live shows and to dance! You can dress it up or keep it casual when you come to Jello, which is also cool. With live bands from Wednesday to Saturdays, some of the best musicians have played there: The Respectables, Dessi di Lauro, Cafesoul, Gardy Fury, Najda, etc. You can expect to see celebrities swing by from time to time. I rate Jello as one of the top in Montreal for an experience which can please pretty much anybody looking to have a good time!

Jello Martini Lounge reopened in August 2009 with the original management. It is now the Jello every loved if not better. You have to go there.

the drinks were tasty, but at 9.25$ you to be pre-drinking. Their staff is incompetent the drunk bartender forgot I gave her a twenty and twice I had to ask another staff member for m change. It takes forever to get drinks, and they run away with your credit cards. Nice band though.

We had called the Jello bar to get on the guest list because we were from out of door and going out for a stagette. When we arrived, the doorman indicated that we were not on the list. He was the rudest person that I think I have ever met. I was extremely disappointed with the staff that is employed at this bar and we did not bother to wait around in the line up. I am not sure why they allow you to call but then treat you like crap!

Jello bar has definitely something in common with the gogo lounge. This is mostly the kind of music and the people (casual, mixed English/French and 25-30). However the place is much bigger. There is the bar with a dance floor, in front of the stage, and a lounge room. The lounge even ended with pool games. Around midnight, the lounge opens. The lounge is more a “discussion” room where the music is lower. On the other side, the dance floor gets crowed. The light is darker and the music higher. Instead of the gogo, you can catch some R’nB, recent hits and house. In the lounge, people are accessible and you can easily engage a conversion. However, I won’t try this place another day than Saturday because it’s quite big and I guess you can feel the place a little too empty the other days. Entrance is 10$, the other prices are average.
