About Sarah B. BarLocated at InterContinental Montreal.
This atmospheric absinthe bar is inspired by, and named after, the divine Sarah Bernhardt (1844-1923), the queen of the French tragedy, whom Victor Hugo called the "Golden Voice" of the 19th century. When she traveled to Quebec in 1880 she memorably performed in the historic Nordheimer building, which today, is an integral part of the InterContinental Montreal. Her legend-and her spirit lives on long after her death…and is said to wander the vaults of the hotel!
Did you know…? Many decades are immortalized in our storied walls. Sarah Bernhardt has a bar named after her and now, you too, will be enchanted by the spirit of Sarah B. Just like the iconoclastic artist, our new bar Le Sarah B., is unique, mysterious, captivating, decadent and surprising. Here, the past blends beautifully with the present and old rituals, such as the intriguing absinthe service, coexist with the latest technology. Absinthe, an herb-based spirit containing 55 to 75% alcohol, is renowned for enhancing the creative energies of the great 19th century European writers and artists. Dubbed the "green fairy", it is served at the "green hour" and it still captures the creative imagination with its legend for mind-altering effects. The Sarah B. will no doubt be a favourite meeting place for business or pleasure whether you drop by for cocktails or bask in the attention of our hosts in our intimate alcove, the Green Fairy.
