Phillips Lounge is located downtown, just a few minutes away from McGill metro station. It is quite easy to forget which neighborhood you are in as soon as you step inside. The interior design gives you an Old Montreal vibe with a touch of Saint-Laurent Boulevard's energy.
The service is fast and friendly but I can't say the staff really masters all the cocktails offered on the list. Lots of mistakes were made on drinks that were too sweet, like Mojitos, or had different quantities in exact same glasses like for Cosmopolitans or Martinis.
Also, not a lot of work was put in the presentation of the menu, with cocktails mixed in the appetizer list.
Conclusion: Overall, the ambiance makes up for its defaults. It's a great place to go grab a drink for 5 à 7 around this location. Make sure to give your credit card as soon as possible if you want to start a bill, they do not accept too many of those once it gets packed.
