We were able to use a meeting room in Monument National for our group to meet and the room was spacious, high ceilings, beautiful woodwork. The only drawback is no Air Conditioning and it was over 80 degrees outside. Ceiling fans would have been nice.

Upon entering this theatre, you are immediately taken back in time. The seats are comfortable, well spaced and a beautiful rich scarlet color. The theatre has excellent acoustics & all seats are cozy to the stage. We saw Oliver Jones & oh his piano playing was superb & we were able to hear every note. I would definitely go back... More

Staying in Quartier des Spectacles

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier des Spectacles
The bar-none entertainment district for music and arts, Quartier des Spectacles is an interactive playground that delights the senses. It totals over 30 performance halls, with the vibrant Place des Festivals at its heart. The outdoor event space features glowing towers, glass edifices, and granite-lined bike paths, and hosts annual festivals, concerts, and comedy nights. The cinema, theatres, and exhibition centres are entwined with external art projects, exemplified at Montreal's Contemporary Art Museum and appearing along every walkway of the Promenade des Artistes in the form of sculpture and public works, from digitally-enhanced swingsets to glowing fountains. Design, performance, and alternative music come together here, a stone's throw from the lively Latin Quarter along Rue Saint-Denis, the quintessential after-party spot for dinner and a drink following a day of jazz, poetry and play.
