|Just like a human beings, you canít judge a bar by its outside. The Brasserie Benelux sits on the side of an ugly apartment building and the barís tinted windows hide its interior. But once you open the door and walk in, youíre transported to (beer) heaven. Brasserie Benelux is very roomy, with a high ceiling, giving it a pleasant open space feel that most bars in Montreal definitely lack. The interior design is remarkable, mostly because of the fascinating asymmetry of the large and exposed air ducts hanging high-up on the ceiling. They look like the tentacles of some blue prehistoric beast. And beneath these blue beasts, patrons are sitting on designer-made island-bars, dominating the space with their metallic surface and oddly shaped chairs.
As for the drinks, Brasserie Benelux brews its own beer, allowing you to discover a range of tastes that leave the commercial beers trailing way behind. Combine this to a friendly staff and we can safely say that Benelux has achieved the recipe for success.
