Bily Kun carries a Plateau-like atmosphere; a moodily-lit lounge with stylishly languid waitresses, it is a favoured destination of the artistic Mont-Royal crowd. Even on off-nights, the bar is pleasantly engorged with an older, well-dressed crowd, and while the DJ booth usually pumps out electronic music, I have encountered rare evenings of live jazz, including a performance by the late Charlie Biddle.
In a strange partnership, Bily Kun is straddled by O Patro Vys, a performance lounge to catch live acts or theatre. Once, I had arranged to meet some friends at Bily Kun for a snapshot drink before we headed upstairs to O Patro Vys to catch the last night of a cabaret. I arrived impeccably on time, but earlier than my slothful amigos - so I stood uncomfortably in the middle of the bar, with my jacket on, fidgety hands pretending to search my pockets for money I didn't have. The ostrich heads on the walls peered at me suspiciously, their elegant, long necks stiffened in disapproval. It took me about 8 minutes to realize that I was standing right next to my buddy, who had got there early. He was wearing a white turtleneck, and was casually reading the Mirror, nursing a beer...he fit in so well that he became invisible, a transparent gear in the clockworks of the Hep crowd, a savage Plateau denizen.

Great place - electronic/house music plays in the background, candleight lends a nice ambience...but finding place to sit can be tricky, as it seems to fill up pretty quickly. The cranberry beer is delicious!

This place is dark, intimate, and when I went there was really good chill house music playing in the background. The crowd was well dressed, sexy and stylish. A nice place to chill with a martini. The ostrich heads are very unusual though... Lots of candlelight. Romantic.
