The atmosphere here is great! We enjoyed some fancy cocktails & mixed drinks on a Thursday night. Our waiter was very friendly & attentive to us. We didn't leave until almost 2am on a Thursday. Nice to have some night life within the hotel mid week. We would return for drinks again during our next visit. Highly recommend!View more

The cocktails are the highlight at 1608 & the small bites are also delightful! The dip board has a lovely beet hummus & purple potatoes chips for the vegans present. The focaccia can be made without cheese as well 😋View more

Le 1608 est une expérience à partager avec des amis de qualité. Pierre-Olivier, serveur & mixologue a su préparer des breuvages uniques & classiques avec classe. N'hésitez pas à demander ce spécialiste pour un expérience hors pair.View more

We were staying at the Fairmont & this bar has been the best part of our stay... Beautiful decor, we were staying right next to a fireplace, very friendly staff & I also loved my cocktail. The Little snacks the brought us were also good so honestly nothing to complain, just a nice moment.View more

I would love to write a positive review because the 1608 bar is beautiful & looks very relaxing, but unfortunately I can't. My family was staying at the hotel & my brother & I decided to drop by the bar for a quick drink before dinner. We were rejected at the door because we didn't have a reservation, even though there were clearly a bunch of seats open at & around the bar, & plenty of standing room. We asked where in the massive hotel we could get a drink without a reservation & were told nowhere. I understand this hotel is a popular landmark, & therefore has lots of people coming by for dinner & drinks, but they need to ensure that the proper amenities are available for guests of the hotel.View more

The service when opening is not very organized & not very friendly. They open at 4 p.m. & at 3:58 p.m. there was a line up of 20 + people behind their "velvet rope"Instead of starting to seat people they make you wait & then at 4 p.m. they are still scrambling around & there was no one ready to seat people. When they finally started to seat you, you cross their velvet rope which is wide enough for only 1 person to cross at a time. Why not have a few hosts ready to do so. My mother had been the day before & they asked her to wait. She crossed their « velvet rope » & they told her to get back behind the rope. It's as if they are worried you are going to stampede in. Just a very snooty vibe. However the atmosphere & vibe once seated is very warm & cozy. Expect to pay $35 (including tip) for a glass of white Riesling.View more

Not a bad spot. A bit stuffy & pretentious. Can't beat the old world charm though.View more

Great spot to drop in when visiting the Frontenac. They don't take reservations so it can be a wait. The entrance is shared with their other restaurants so getting your name down was hectic & confusing. We weren't sure who to talk too, so just go up to whoever looks like a hostess & ask how to get a table. The cocktails are pricey but definitely worth it. They are extremely well balanced & unique. Whether you like strong liquor or light drinks, they'll have something for you. Our server was helpful & polite. If you sit towards the back, you'll get a nice view of the river.View more
