Hallelujah, Bar Waverly's Silly Terrasse Drama is Over

Patrons will be able to drink outside the bar again soon.

It had all the hallmarks of Montreal's opaque, and, often, Kafkaesque bureaucracy: Bar applies for permit to erect a terrasse on the street. City officials deny request, instruct bar to build terrasse on sidewalk. Bar spends $7,700 to do so. City tells bar, our bad, dismantle it and apply for a new permit for a street terrasse, which, incidentally, we're totally cool with now.

In a nutshell, this was the red tape horror show Bar Waverly, a popular Mile End watering hole, recently faced. It seems all is well that ends well, however. The bar's upgraded terrasse is almost a go, to the joy of Ubisoft employees across the street, and, as a result, the corner of Saint-Laurent and Saint-Viateur is a little less dull.
