If you find yourself wandering around the city late at night with a hankering for indulgent French food, get to Lonsdale Street and look for the door marked “MGX.” Beyond it, you’ll find a raucous, dimly-lit basement bar where you can easily lose the rest of your night. The same crew is behind dive bar Heartbreaker and speakeasy The Everleigh, and are known for their top-notch cocktails. Order the Manhattan and the cheeseburger with bordelaise and pomme frites, all served until 2:30am on Friday and Saturday nights.
