If Auberge Saint-Gabriel’s walls could talk, they would tell many tales of the events that have marked Quebec’s history. In fact, Truteau Hall housed the old Beauchemin print at the beginning of the 20th century, publishers of the newspaper Le Patriote! Furthermore, a fur trading post once occupied the space where the Velvet nightclub now stands.
Auberge Saint-Gabriel is a testimony to the history of a nation. In fact, if you know where to look, you’ll notice many playful nods to our past, both distant and recent. That’s because renowned designer Bruno Braën was excited to incorporate icons that symbolize not only Quebec’s history, but the history of an entire continent into the Auberge’s decor.
Today, Auberge Saint-Gabriel is owned by Marc Bolay, Garou, and Guy Laliberté. Together, they have transformed this historical institution into a fine dining establishment renowned for its Quebec cuisine. The Auberge is also home to one of the trendiest spots in a city internationally renowned for its nightlife, and an elegant and welcoming site able to accommodate any large-scale event.
