A Menu That Tells a Story

Starting May 18, 2024, Crocodile will offer a menu that features a mix of creative aperitif cocktails, local beers—highlighting selections from Messorem—and wines from Quebec, including eight varieties from Pinard & Filles. What's more, Crocodile is set to cater to all tastes with an extensive range of non-alcoholic options, ensuring that every guest finds something to delight their palate. These drinks will be served in handcrafted glassware, showcasing the latest trends and the finest cocktail accessories.

Craft and Quality at the Heart

Since its inception in 2012, Alambika and its founder, Jean-Sébastien Michel, have been at the forefront of promoting quality spirits, wines, and cocktails, both to the general public and the hospitality industry. Max Coubès, a veteran mixologist and for the second year running nominee for the Lauriers de la gastronomie québécoise, brings his expertise back to the bar with a tantalizing cocktail menu that honors the aperitif tradition—a trend that has gained international acclaim and allows for guilt-free enjoyment the next day.
