Rico Rommheim is always welcome, that's the very nature of the Rommheim.


And as for althegreat, I can't even remember why "he" got banned in the first place.

I'm torn. The tower looks mighty fine and seems to integrate really well with its surroundings, but... le vieux dublin! Ca sera jamais pareil...

gotta agree. Old Dublin is the only place in which I get the complete feeling I'm in an Irish pub (even though I've never been to Ireland so I honestly don't know what a 'real' one is like!). I guess some reasons for its air of genuiness is that it's so small, it's in a basement, and its atmosphere is more one of warmth than classiness. That's why even though it's such a well known place, it'll always have the feel of a bona fide haunt (to me anyway, and probably to most people too). Maybe it's a bit like Schwartz's in that sense (though Schwartz's is 100 times more famous and 100 times more informal). I love those kinda places. Comfortable yet low key atmosphere and high quality product & service. Great representatives of our culture, I'd say

You hit the nail on the head. I will sorely miss the Vieux Dublin when it is gone.

Anybody remember the Old Munich? (occupied by "Le Medley")? It was the largest Bavarian beer hall in North America. Complete with a 10-piece "OOMPA" band in lederhosen on a revolving stage; barmaids in Hausfrau dirndl's, 150proof schnapps with beer chasers, picnic tables, a mezzanine level that you could look down over the whole sordid drunken mess...I loved the place.

^ unfortunately never heard of it but sounds like it was a great place! Some friends of mine who lived in St-Eustache used to go to a big bavarian bar just like the one you described (but it was in St-Eustache rather than downtown MTL). Despite its far-off location it sounded like a was a pretty big place, and rather famous too (it had the bavarian band on a platform in the middle of the place, etc.). Though I don't remember the name, and the last time I hear of it we were still in CEGEP (10 years ago!). maybe it's still around?

Thinking about that, I gotta say I'm so impressed when I think of bars and restaurants that last for decades, sometimes even multiple generations! For an industry where the players come and go with the fads and fashions, it's pretty impressive when a business lasts so long (and proportionately sad when such a business closes)

I wonder if there's a list somewhere of the oldest bars and restaurants in Montreal, ranked by age? That'd be really cool to see! I wonder how old is the oldest one??

Lacks some height to make it cohesive. It has the same problem is le Crystal de la Montagne, but its a fundamentally good design.

Not a tall one but the city is getting more dense with this building + the design is rather daring for the city too.

Official height will be...

110 meters -at least according to the board on the site. Everytime a project is planned to go higher than the zoning permit it, the developper need to put a sign announcing that there will be public hearing about it.
So now we know the project is planned to top at 110 meters.

Due to the economic meltdown, the project is delayed.

The construction will start october 2009.
