New City Gas Montreal
Located directly in the heart of Griffintown, this heritage building has become one of today’s hottest spots in town. Originally built in 1859 the New City Gas complex used to transform coal into gas for lighting Montréal's streets and buildings. Today, the heritage complex has been transformed into a multifunctional event space encompassing over 40,000 square feet on two floors. Flexible enough to adapt to client needs, the building can accommodate up to three different rooms, each possessing the combination of historic character and contemporary design.
When re-opened in 2012 as an event space, its existing shell was maintained and a live venue was built out with a state of the art sound and light experience, while the original vintage and historical elements were restored. New City Gas’ impressive roofs and stone masonry remain a strong and evocative presence in the urban landscape.
What was once an energy source for the city’s lights is now a glowing presence in the Montreal nightlife scene; New City Gas caters to over 3,000 people each and every week.
