CAMP restaurant bar
There's a new restaurant on Crescent Street with a big screen behind the bar, but it doesn't show Montreal's hockey games or UFC. Well, that didn't work for Taverne Crescent, the location's last owner, so with a new sleek design, a re-vamped cocktail menu, a sophisticated happy hour and a late-night party atmosphere, CAMP is hoping to have better luck.
The after-hockey crowd is not exactly CAMP's desired clientele. Actually, unless your hockey jersey looks a whole lot like a suit or a little black dress, you probably aren't going to be stepping into this place.
CAMP restaurant bar wants you to come, have a cocktail or 3, sample from the tapas-style card of French and local fare (think mouthfuls of beef tenderloin on crostini and shrimp martinis to pair with your 2 oz-er) and watch the restaurant change from chic dinner spot to upscale lounge.
You are probably not meant to see the person across the table or booth from you, but you are definitely supposed to be very attracted to him or her. The atmosphere and live DJ shout that this is a place to either see or be seen (huge glass windows in front with luxurious sofas), or to seclude yourself and your guest in a romantic darkened corner of the room.
