Why locals love it

Referred to as the “The Red Room,” La Sala Rosa has become an institution in the local Spanish community. With traditional decor made up of bright red curtains and flamenco dancer frames adorning the walls, its intimate ambiance is amplified by the crimson hue emitted once candles are lit. Thursday nights are popular as they put on a flamenco show.

Why you should visit it

Doubling as a Spanish restaurant and a performance hall, La Sala Rosa is where you can begin your evening savouring delicious tapas and paella, while ending it with a live show. Indulge in their grilled calamari or shrimp, fried chorizo, Serrano ham, and warm goat cheese with honey & caramelized onions. Don’t forget to pair your meal with sangria!

Special tip

Not to be confused with the next-door venue that goes by the same name, I’m told the extra “S” is added to make the spelling Italian (La Sala Rossa).

Very good tapas resto with a lively vibe, with two music venues upstairs and across the street.

Not only is it one of the best Montreal show venues, witrh really good vibes, but the restaurant has probably Mointreal's best paela!

Delicious vegetation food near McGIll

Donna, are you thinking of Lola Rossa on Milton? La Sala rossa is not strictly vegetarian, though it is vegetarian-friendly, much more so than most Spanish restaurants. It isn't a huge distance from McGil, but not exactly close by - it is in Mile End, on boulevard St-Laurent near St-Joseph.
