In the romantic, low lighting of Aura Resto Lounge, guests sit at the long, glossy bar as colourful lights splash across an exposed-stone wall and expert bartenders shake or stir six types of martinis. During the early hours of the evening, guests pass around tapas, nibbling on assortments of Quebecois cheeses or goat-cheese-stuffed dates. Next, diners graduate to large plates that pair seasonal veggies with filet mignon, lamb shank, or grilled sockeye salmon. Later in the evening, the cozy restaurant transforms into a club scene as DJ Luc Soulière spins beats and guests sip on imported beers. On Wednesdays, the lounge hosts Ladies' Night, where gals mingle and receive discounts on martinis.
