L’Auberge Saint-Gabriel

Built in 1688 by a French soldier, the Auberge Saint-Gabriel was the first “inn” in North America to receive the first liquor license in the country, on March 4, 1754. In the 19th century, it was transformed into a private mansion. In 1914, it became the Auberge Saint-Gabriel again and thus regained its original vocation. It is a place full of Quebec history that is hidden under these heavy stones.

Today, the Auberge Saint-Gabriel is owned by Marc Bolay and Garou. Between the two of them, they have made this historic institution a mecca of Quebec gastronomy, one of the trendiest destinations in Montreal’s nightlife, and a friendly and welcoming venue, sure to be enjoyed by all who attend.

We are thrilled to have exclusive use of the Truteau Room for our CARDP final evening. Our program will feature a menu showcase the best of locally sources products, exquisitely prepared; fine wines and entertainment. Return transportation will be provided from the Bonaventure, however some may choose to take the 20 minute walk to the venue through Old Montreal.

This event is offered at a cost of $150/person.
