L’Auberge Saint-Gabriel

In the heart of Old Montreal, Auberge St-Gabriel, a historic inn founded in 1754, is one of the most impressive addresses in Montreal. Indeed, the decor, conceived by designer Bruno Braën, has been recognized as one of the most beautiful over the years. This renowned establishment offers the ideal location for major events with not one, but four private rooms! The Montreal institution offers the Dulong (80 people for a cocktail and 64 people seated), the Grenier (200 people for a cocktail and 150 people seated), the Sabrevois (80 people for a cocktail and 50 people seated) and the Truteau (200 people for a cocktail and 112 people seated).

426 Rue Saint Gabriel

Bar Palco

Bar Palco has brought a breath of youth and fun to Wellington Street. With Marc-Antoine Coulombe and Isabelle Corriveau as the determined young owners, the neighbourhood bar has quickly become a success. Chef Valérie Doucet (formerly of Auberge Saint Gabriel) prepares a concise and delicious menu. There’s something for everyone: vegetarian options like their incredible burger, plenty of vegan options, and satisfying salty snacks like their nachos or roasted potato poutine. Our favourite thing about Bar Palco is the atmosphere, that is both casual and festive. Note that the bar’s magnificent mezzanine can accommodate up to 30 guests for your celebrations.

4019 Rue Wellington

La Fabrique

On St-Denis Street, the decor of the bistro La Fabrique merges its old industrial look with that of the late Chambre à Part. The atmosphere is elegant, warm and very comfortable and offers a semi-private open room. Its bar section, equipped with a magnificent skylight, can accommodate 30 guests for a cocktail reception and 22 seated guests. The menu features Asian, French and Quebec-inspired dishes, all created by chef Jean-Baptiste Marchand.  The restaurant also offers an external private room, L’Annexe, which can accommodate 43 seated guests and 70 for a cocktail reception.

Chez Victoire

We come here to celebrate, the room having been conceived so that the party can pick up quickly! At Chez Victoire, you can enjoy the menu of innovative and passionate chef Alexandre Gosselin. In addition to their oysters that they’re known for, you can enjoy excellent small plates paired with great wine from sommelier Sindie Goineau’s curated list. Their private mezzanine room can accommodate 55 people, but it remains open to the rest of the restaurant – ideal for birthdays or parties.

1453 Avenue du Mont-Royal Est

La Chronique

It’s quite a feat to last more than 20 years in the restaurant business in Montreal. To be consistently good is a combination of great talent, hard work, and a desire to do things the right way. La Chronique is one of the best restaurants in the city in its class – that of excellent restaurants with a French accent. The chic restaurant can accommodate groups of up to 24 people in a private room for a cocktail party, a tasting menu, a group menu or any other event.

112 Rue McGill

Maison Boulud

Maison Boulud, the restaurant of the posh Ritz Carlton, is very chic and elegant. Chef Riccardo Bertolino, as Italian as he is, prepares outstanding dishes with a French touch. The terrace adjacent to the restaurant’s dining room is also worth a visit – one of the most beautiful terraces in Montreal. La Maison Boulud has a private lounge that can accommodate up to 24 people, as well as a semi-private lounge that can accommodate six people. We particularly like the elegance of the space and the refinement of the menu offered by the house.

When you walk through the door, you have no idea that you’re entering the notorious enchanted forest that is the Soubois! After going down the stairs to the reception of this “forest”, you are immediately transported by the breathtaking decor by Alexandre Brosseau of the Speakeasy agency. It is also possible to privatize the restaurant completely or partially on request. The place impresses every time. Soubois impresses every time.

Bar George

It is said that walking through the doors of Bar George is like taking a trip back in time to the Montreal of 1880. Located in a heritage home, the Bar’s residential construction allows it to be divided into small rooms, each with their own personality. All visually distinct, the rooms of Bar George move away from sleek modernism to offer an experience entirely unique to the establishment: to travel back in time.
