The Velvet Speakeasy is hidden under the Auberge Saint-Gabriel, in Old Montreal, a history-filled inn built way back in the 18th century (specifically in 1754). To access the speakeasy, visitors have to walk through the Saint Gabriel into the basement, down a long candle-lit hallway that leads you to the Velvet Speakeasy’s hidden wonders. Truly live the experience of a hidden, 20s-style nightspot in Montreal, enjoying state-of-the-art amenities in a retro setting.
Once you’re inside The Velvet, you’ll see how the dance floor is filled with Montreal’s most elite trendsetters and the most scandalously short minis.
