EP. 2 SOUS SOL
A Hidden Speakeasy
WATCH THE TIKTOK
WHAT IS SOUS SOL?
Behind a building, down some stairs, and hidden behind a mysterious red door in the Osborne area of Winnipeg is Sous Sol, a secret restaurant and speakeasy.
Sous Sol has proudly served cruelty-free fine-dining entrees, sides, and desserts since 2015. They also boast an incredibly large list of creative cocktails to wet your whistle.
5 REASONS TO GO
- THE COCKTAILS
With multiple sections dedicated to different flavour experiences, Sous Sol’s cocktail selection is a sight to behold. The craftsmanship is also something to behold. Each drink is carefully crafted and is distinguishable in taste and appearance amongst the diverse selection.
- DELICIOUS FOOD
Sous Sol features a rotating menu of cruelty-free food with fine-dining flare. They also offer dairy/gluten-free meal options, as well as vegan plates as well. Meals are served on old china plates which reflect the ambiance of the decor within the restaurant.
- THE EXPERIENCE
Sous Sol is worth going for the experience alone. Just finding the entrance to this signless “secret” establishment is a good amount of fun that is likely to strike awe or at least surprise in you and your group.
- THE AMBIANCE
Sous Sol is decked from ceiling to floor with eccentric decor. Persian rugs, hanging lamps and lamp shades, and paintings mounted on the ceiling are amongst a few of the interesting decor pieces within the speakeasy. The candle-lit lighting is homey, warm, and intimate.
- GREAT DATE NIGHT
Due to its small size and intimate ambiance, Sous Sol is the perfect destination for date night.
ORDER ENTREES AND A SIDE
I split the Duck frois gras, the bone marrow, and the potatoes dauphinoise between me and a friend and it was enough food! Keep in mind we ate before going, so maybe order 3 mains and a side or 2 mains 2 sides if you’re going with another person.
Sous Sol tends to fill up quickly and time slots are usually in blocks of 2 hours. Book your reservation early via their website here.
TRY A FEW DIFFERENT DRINKS
The cocktail menu at Sous Sol is massive, so I recommend trying a few different drinks amongst your group! The three drinks I recommend are: The Inigo Montoya, Blue Steel, and Fire & Fun.
