Jean-Maxime Giguère had just moved into the neighbourhood, realising that a key component was missing to this beautiful setting. That's where his journey began. Built from scratch with the help of local artisans, 132 Bar Vintage rose up in February 2013 and has shone on Fleury street ever since.
The bar’s mission is to offer a safe haven to our guests where they can feel comfortable and at home. To offer a beautiful experience where they leave with a smile on their faces and a longing to come back.
“Changing people’s lives one cocktail at a time”
To create a community of easy-going, fine drinkers, that come to us to discover the world of cocktails, spirits and hospitality, and feel comfortable enough to have their ‘go-to’ beverage, prepared in the most classic (or vintage) way possible.
Owner and Bartender
Owner of 132 Bar Vintage, sommelier, rhum enthousiaste, and hospitality expert, Jmax had a vision for Fleury street, and boy did he ever deliver. With an impressive portfolio, working around the world, and as experienced as they come, he is sure to greet you and treat you in the most hospitable way possible.
Jmax made sure that 132 was going to be a ‘go-to’ establishment in Montreal, even if it's totally out of the way. The journey is well worth the trip! He’ll make sure of that!
In his time off, you’ll catch him either bouldering or cruising on his SUP along the various rivers and lakes of the province of Quebec.

Marie-Louise Roy Bilodeau
Marie-Louise decided to venture into the world of cocktails due to the versatile creativity, and social aspect of it. Meeting new people everyday, changing and touching people’s lives one cocktail at a time is something she is adopting very well at 132.
She joined the 132 team to sharpen her skills and gain experience under the watchful eyes of Jmax and Jon, passing down all the knowledge necessary to create a Bartender to be reckoned with!
