Stem Bar: restaurant where you drink very well

Open in January 2020 on Notre-Dame Boulevard West, Stem Bar offers modern and delicate cuisine. From the owners of the September Surf Café, the restaurant warmly invites locals to share relaxed and friendly moments.

Designed by Ravi Handa, Stem Bar’s decor focuses on sobriety and a subdued ambiance, accentuated by tastefully arranged period details. With a capacity of up to 57 covers, this space provides a comfortable experience, whether at the bar or around small tables. Since they do not take reservations, the bar has been arranged to include a section for guests who prefer to enjoy a drink while waiting for a table, without disrupting the flow.

In terms of cuisine, Kevin Tolton develops a seasonal menu in constant evolution, leaving room for the inspirations of the moment and novelty. Focused on sharing, this menu offers a selection of small fresh and finely executed plates. The dishes, both simple and gourmet, are enjoyed without restraint!

The real strength of the Stem Bar lies in its selection of drinks. For its wine list, it favors small independent producers, carefully chosen in private importation. As for the selection of beers, they rely on local breweries. Just like for the kitchen, the drink menu is regularly updated with beautiful novelties, thus offering customers the opportunity to make exciting discoveries throughout the year.

The Stem Bar embodies this indefinable je-ne-sais-quoi; a place where you simply feel good, ideal for a relaxed evening in Little Burgundy.
