Last May, New City Gas launched their successful summer 5a7 in absolute style. Last week they did it again, this time pulling out all the stops as they revealed their exclusive autumn menu at a special preview event. To uncork their fall 5a7 they went bigger and better, reminding us all why people flock to this dynamic venue.

NCGF5Moet et Chandon kicked the part off in champagne style as guests started to pour in. With their new autumn 5a7 drink and food menu, New City Gas invites us get cozy with their new cocktail line-up featuring jazzed up drinks based on classic autumn flavors. Lawerence Picard, the man behind last summer’s seasonal delights, once again expertly concocted the cocktail menu. This time around he went for fall inspired ingredients such as ginger, spiced syrup, cherry, vanilla cranberry, apple cidre and more (check out the full list of cocktails here).  The fall season will also feature delicious food that will be world inspired and different from week to week. The event also featured a Yeh yogurt stand, a decked out candy bar, an oyster bar and more while the DJ spun us into frenzy.

Bringing the party inside, style and substance blended like a potent cocktail as New City Gas showcased a few improvements (like a big, beautiful new bright, big window and fun new décor such as the lacquered chandeliers and CHAMPAGNE FOOSBALL!) they’ve made to the place.  There’s nothing wrong with getting a little work done for fall!

New City Gas has turned the Thursday night 5a7 into their very own institution and they have built on that for the fall. We may have spent our summer sipping cocktails on breezy terraces until way past sundown, but Montrealers can’t be stopped and won’t be stopped by Mother Nature’s cold shoulder.

Happy sipping!
