“What an amazing experience. We went in on a weeknight and were able to be seated at the bar immediately. The bartender spent time going over our drink preferences and quickly turned out a delicious beverage catered to our likes. Not much seating available, which made the mood that much better.” – Ryan Mirl

“Serves excellent daiquiris – ask for the number 4! Nick was a lovely waiter who appreciated our return the next day for more cocktails. Slushes are made in house and are reasonably priced. Will return for the cubanos next time we visit the city. It’s also the sister bar to The Coldroom, the speakeasy downstairs, so you’ll maybe recognise the same bar people from downstairs helping out here” – Naomi Harper
Bar Furco is a perfect place to unwind after a long day of work. Organic wines and a variety of cocktails are available. In 2014, Zébulon Perron was awarded the architecture prize for his switch to the Furco. He built a light-filled space that emphasizes raw materials while also emphasizing comfort and conviviality.
