Notre-Dame West in Little Burgundy has been famously known as Montreal's "Antique Alley", an ideal shopping strip for antique-lovers who spend hours browsing through dozens of stores on a 10 block stretch from Atwater to Guy. In recent years, this historically low-income neighborhood has transformed into a lively community with the reopening of the Lachine Canal, the revitalization of the Atwater market, and the construction of new townhouses and condos. A younger generation has moved into the area and new restaurants have opened up creating a fresh vibe on the street. Residents of Little Burgundy appreciate their close proximity to the many shops and social venues that Notre-Dame West now has to offer.
THE BURGUNDY LION
The word pub is derived from the term public house. A public house was traditionally a meeting spot that could serve as a center for the community as much as the local church. Burgundy Lion immerses itself in the community to re-create that sense of comfort but with a modern twist. The concept behind the design and feel of Burgundy Lion is to blend a traditional British pub with a modern lounge bar and to offer a unique twist on British pub cuisine. Burgundy Lion is a modern English pub with traditional English cuisine mixed with a more laid back, quintessentially Montreal feel.
Burgundy Lion is located in Little Burgundy, an historic working class neighborhood in Montreal. Since the early 90's, Little Burgundy has enjoyed a re-birth as young professionals are taking advantage of its proximity to the downtown core and its renewed sense of community.
Burgundy Lion is not a traditional pub by Montreal or UK standards. They provide a higher quality product in food, drink, service, and ambiance than other established pubs. Burgundy Lion is armed with an impressive selection of traditional whiskeys and beers, as well as a modern cocktail and wine list. The menu at Burgundy Lion was designed by one of Montreal's most talented young chefs, and provides patrons with an opportunity to experience a unique take on traditional British fare.
