Per­fect lounges for late-night snacks

Ottawa Magazine - - TOO HOT TO COOK - —Katie Shapiro

The Moon­room The Moon­room burns brightly at night. With­out a full kitchen, there’s a solid list of snacks (get the ba­con-wrapped olives) to com­ple­ment the com­pre­hen­sive drinks list. Add such clas­sic cock­tails as a del­i­cate French 75 or a boozy Man­hat­tan to the ef­fort­lessly cool vibe, cue the sweet beats — this lit­tle bar has it all. 442 Pre­ston St.

Oz Kafe Af­ter mov­ing away from their spot of 12 years on El­gin Street al­most a year ago, Oz Kafe is set for a rein­car­na­tion on York Street. A peren­nial favourite among those in and out of the ser­vice in­dus­try, there’s now an even greater fo­cus on sea­son­al­ity and re­gion­al­ity on the menu — and there’s a 54seat pa­tio. 10 York St.

Bel­mont Eclec­ti­cally decked out with vin­tage maps and pen­nants, Bel­mont puts de­li­ciously un­ortho­dox twists on small plates such as kim­chi and pork ril­lettes. Try “Ohh Baby, I Like It Rawww” — salmon tar­tar with tog­a­rashi mayo. The menu is as quirky as the decor. Check the chalk­board for a ro­tat­ing list of such tip­ples as Lisa Needs Braces, which mixes char­treuse, gin, and grape­fruit juice. 1169 Bank St.

Cop­per Spir­its and Sights On the 16th floor of the An­daz Ho­tel in the ByWard Mar­ket, Cop­per Spir­its and Sights has a view that’s hard to beat, and you’ll be sure to catch a cool evening breeze out­side on the pa­tio. Lo­cal spir­its and in­gre­di­ents are big fea­tures — sip on the NCC (Na­tional Cap­i­tal Cae­sar), fea­tur­ing Perth’s Top Shelf vodka. There’s a live DJ on week­ends to pro­vide the per­fect sound­track to your late-night snack­ing (salami chips and caviar, any­one?). 325 Dal­housie St.
