Would recommend McLean's as part of a pub crawl. There is often live music, there's pool, and it's near several other fun places - standard Montreal pub.

Where do you go on a hot day to quench your thirst? A good pub. We called in here randomly to have a beer and it was a good choice. We took a seat at the bar and were served right away. Friendly staff. We...More

I walked over around 6:30pm so I can't say if there's much parking. I would suspect that a public parking lot would be in order if you didn't walk over. The pub was packed when I went inside but not to the point that there...More

Good to visit to watch hockey or UFC Lots of beer choice Great downtown location Poutine choices are OK stick with standard poutine! Tried curry poutine and was disappointed. Too much curry! Not too noisy. A good pub to visit.

Try a yard of beer. Very cool way to enjoy some beer with friends. Club sandwich was good, poutine had Spivey fries so a little different. It was still good just wasn’t expecting it.

Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the

headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and

Hi, Yes, by law our establishment is 18 years and older. We are a bar that serves food (and has lottery video machines) and not a restaurant that serves alcohol. Sorry, wish we could have you visit us. Cheers, Stuart

Description
Built in 1910 by Military Tailor, R.J. Inglis, the building at 1210 Peel Street became the Rymark Tavern in the early 30's. For over 60 years the Rymark was a destination spot for Pigs Knuckles and Baked Beans. In 1992 McLean's Pub was established by the legendary Montreal barman, Ian McLean. Ian loved the warm and inviting atmosphere, with its oak beamed ceilings, hand carved fireplace, and many other unique features. With his incredible charm and a handpicked staff, Ian created a new pub on the scene. He has since passed, but his namesake and life's work is now a landmark pub in downtown Montreal!
