With the opening of few different Aloha-theme bars and restaurants this summer, we figured it was about time we update you on the latest Hawaiian hotspots in the city.
Here are 7 places where you can get your Hawaiin on!
This brand new project is not only super Insta-friendly but also delicious. The owner, Dan Pham, is a regular to Hawaii and knows what makes your inner Hawaiian foodie tick. At Kamehameha (it’s the name of the major highway in North Oahu), you’ll find fish-coned ice cream, pokes and acai bowls in a seriously Pinterest-worthy decor.
Where: 1190 Sainte-Catherine E.
The Snowbird Tiki Bar recently opened in Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie. The concept is very bold and very Hawaiian-cliché featuring fake palm trees and Polynesian flowers in your oversized drinks. A fun time for everyone!
Where: 6714 Saint-Laurent
Aloha Espresso Bar is the closest you can get to Hawaii in Montreal. Serving 100% Kona-blend coffee (from The Big Island), shaved ice, acai bowls and Hawaiian-banana bread, you’ll find everything you need to make you feel as if you’re on the Hawaiian Islands.
Where: 15 De la commune
Inspired by the Californian spirit, Boho is the new speakeasy lounge located next door to its big-sister restaurant, Venice. In addition to their ultra cool tropical themed decor, you’ll find a refreshing cocktail list and Hawaiian traditional meals like pokes and acai bowls at Boho. As if it wasn’t enough, there’s also a take out counter at the entrance serving, among other things, home made popsicles.
Where: 436, Saint-François Xavier
Koa Luna is a cool poke bar inspired by the Hawaiian Islands. Currently with two locations (the original one is located on Sainte-Catherine W. and the Union address recently opened), it’s now easier than ever to satisfy your poke cravings. In addition to a wide variety of pokes, Koa Lua serves some traditional Hawaiian sides and cocktails.
Where: 1212 Union & 1446 Rue Sainte-Catherine W.
Perched on a rooftop, overlooking Place Jacques-Cartier, Perché is a true tropical oasis in busy Old Montreal. The lush green décor is the perfect getaway for a quick bite and some afternoon cocktails. The menu is short, but inspired by Hawaii and California. You’ll find some fresh salads and a variety of poke bowls at this gorgeous new terrace.
Where: 153, rue St-Amable
The name of the place says it all. This poke bar located on Crescent Street offers signature bowls and pokes, all named after a Hawaiian island or city. You can also “build your own bowl” and enjoy it on their small covered terrace or for take-out.
Where: 2153 rue Crescent
