Auberge Le Saint-Gabriel
Set in Montreal’s oldest building this restaurant/lounge/terasse’s ambience is simply charming. This medieval cottage was built in 1688; since then, its thick-stoned walls have lived through many tales. Today, it’s one of the classiest and coziest spots in Montreal known for it’s elegance and inviting French dishes. The auberge is also home to Velvet, an underground universe or “speakeasy.” The only way to get there, is to ask the doorman to escort you to the basement’s entrance. After making your way through a stone-walled tunnel only lit with candles, you’ll find yourself in a smoky room with a dance floor, lounge area, top-notch DJs, and beautiful people.
