Photos of Flyjin Montreal

Flyjin is a relaxed cafe specializing in coffee, tea & fresh-squeezed juice served in a cozy setting. Flyjin is a Japanese restaurant and bar located in Old Montréal. At the height of his reputation, renowned Chef Daniel Ken proposes a delectable Asian fusion menu using only the best, fresh ingredients. Flyjin also has a carefully curated list of resident DJs to provide a sensational musical experience. Flyjin is mysterious and sophisticated, providing its patrons with a one-of-a-kind experience. One of the chicest hangouts in Old Montreal is this basement speakeasy-meets-izakaya, which excels at inventive cocktails. Open a low-key door in Old Montreal, descend a gilded wallpaper-decorated staircase, and proceed down the longest, narrowest corridor you’ve probably seen. 

The basement speakeasy-meets-izakaya at the end is one of Montreal’s most chichi hangouts. With a long, red, angular bar and teal leather banquettes filled with beautiful people, this moody and magical bar is dressed in rich auburn woods and exposed brick. This place has a who’s who vibe, incredibly late at night when it transitions from a restaurant serving pan-Asian fare to a club. The crowd, typically between the ages of 25 and 45, is always dressed to the nines—a sexy dress and Louboutins for her, slicked back hair, and a statement watch for him. Seasonal cocktails feature unique flavors and Asian ingredients such as sake, plum wine, Japanese whiskey, and soju (Korean vodka). Take, for example, the Ichigo Monkey Business, a boozy concoction of rum, Campari, citrus juices, rose and hibiscus syrup, and, for good measure, grapefruit Red Bull. 

Most people here, however, order bottle service; you can go big-shot with a $575 bottle of Don Julio 1942 or go casual with a $200 bottle of Veuve Clicquot Brut. Aside from the club business, Flyjin is a legitimate restaurant. The menu here, created by Montreal star chef Antonio Park, reinterprets izakaya classics like tataki and sashimi with unconventional flavor combinations. The sticky, smoky Korean braised beef ribs, the Gyuniku sashimi, and the buttery lobster maki, which include tender slices of raw beef topped with Montreal steak seasoning and yuzu sauce, are all must-orders. The staff here is model-like, and the service is flawless. This is squad central, with large group tables and plenty of bar seating. Because you cannot make reservations if you do not intend to eat, your best bet is to reserve a meal and stay for the night.
