Boho, Old Montreal cocktail bar with the ambiance of a tropical vacation, celebrated its first birthday on May 25. Highlights of the evening included amazing tropical decor, fantastic music, and tasty treats.
The Miami-themed birthday event organized by Olivia-Bianca Vojtech of Insert Identity Agency. It was a fun media event including complimentary food and drinks, candy sponsored by Squish, and great Miami vibes. The event was attended by top Montreal influencers and media with the benefit of some of Boho’s most popular and delicious cocktails , great ambiance, a tropical photo station, and amazing music.
Many turned out for the birthday party; influencers in attendance included: Jay Caesar,,Jessika Dufour, Anika Lacasse, Carmelo G. Preziuso, Romy Paige Schick, and Taylor Rozenblat.
The party is over now, but Boho is welcoming customers for its second year in business. For those unfamiliar with this bar near to the Old Montreal Stock Exchange, some online comments describe it as “the best place in Old Montreal for cocktails.” Its Miami Art Deco style turquoise leather banquette seating, and fluorescent lighting that reflects the pink floor creates an ambiance that might just transport you to southern Florida.
The cocktail menu at Boho includes a dozen drinks with names like: “Basil Smash” (citadelle gin, Amsterdam vodka, lime juice, basil, cucumber, & ginger); “Miami Vice” (plantation 3* white rum, guava juice, lime juice, coco flakes,& pineapple); “Santa Monica” (sauza blue tequila, aperit, strawberry syrup, fresh lime, raspberry & basil); and “Watermelon Margarita” (sauza blue tequila, dry curaçao, luxardo, watermelon, & orgeat syrup), mostly priced at $12. A novelty drink here is the Popsicle cocktail that, yes, contains a real Popsicle.
Food items include flatbread pizza, tacos, salads, and pokes with prices starting at $11. There are also sides dishes (i.e. guacamole, sweet potato fries),and desserts (Venice cheesecake, double chocolate brownie) for prices between $6 and $13.
Downstairs from Boho is the Venice Restaurant and the Clandestino mezcal “speakeasy” where an astonishing variety of tequila and mesquite is offered. Because the music is subdued, Boho is also a good place to chat and actually hear what is being said. The name “Boho” is a takeoff on “Bohemian,” here meaning “casual and accessible”.
Boho is open from 5PM–1AM on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, then 5PM–3AM on Thursday, Friday, Saturday. Doors are closed on Sunday and Monday.
