Primeau also made sure to include that "the beach is a big terrasse."
While no official date for the reopening of Beachclub itself has been announced, Pointe-Calumet Beach reopened to the public on May 19 with different activities to partake in, including Latin dance workshops on Wednesdays.
Restaurant terrasses in Quebec are allowed to reopen as of May 28 and bar terrasses in the province can open up again on June 11.
Beachclub owner Olivier Primeau is making headlines due to buzz around his new pizzeria Slice Gang.
But it's not the foodies that are raving about the pizza just yet. Instead, some individuals are complaining about the English name and quality of the food. The thing is, the restaurant hasn't even opened yet.
No one in Quebec is complaining about the 90% of restaurant names that aren't in French.
Originally set for winter 2020, the opening of Slice Gang was pushed back to May 2021 due to the pandemic, Narcity Québec reports.
But that little detail hasn't deterred a number of people from leaving negative comments for the restaurant on Google, with many taking aim at the name and invoking Bill 101, the Charter of the French Language.
Others are leaving five-star reviews to counter the negative.
In a statement shared with MTL Blog, Primeau defended the restaurant, saying its name is "more a slogan than anything else."
He said it's "purely marketing."
"Once again I'm being attacked because some people don't like me because I'm successful and my father was there before me," he continued.
"But for English names, no one in Quebec is complaining about 90% of restaurant names that aren't in French, but because I'm known it's easier to put an image to the names of my restaurants."
He made clear he has not considered changing the name.
Slice Gang opens in May 2021 in Sainte-Thérèse, Quebec.
Many Montrealers have high hopes for next summer after a COVID-filled 2020. But there's already a hiccup for those planning on partying at Beachclub — a popular open-air club about an hour from Montreal — which will lose its liquor permit for 20 days in 2021, according to files provided to MTL Blog by La Régie des alcools des courses et des jeux.
Beachclub — which is located in Pointe-Calumet, Quebec and known for its beaches, terraces, swimming pool, bars and EDM shows — cancelled its 2020 season due to the coronavirus pandemic, promising its patrons on Facebook that they'd be "aiming high" for the upcoming season.
The period Beachclub's liquor permit will be suspended next summer
But on September 23, La Régie des alcools reached its decision to suspend Beachclub's liquor permit beginning May 21, 2021.
According to the document, this is due to evidence of 93 breaches over the course of four years between 2015-2018, which show that "the licensee operated her liquor licence in a manner that was detrimental to public peace and safety."
The alleged breaches fall into the following categories:
Acts of violence
Drugs or other controlled substances
Subjects of police interest seen and observed at the facility
Noteworthy incidents include a 2015 drowning and the presence of Hells Angels gang members.
The document says the pandemic led the tribunal to opt for a 20-day sentence as opposed to the litigator's suggested 40 days.
It clarifies that Beachclub can still choose to hold events on the days its liquor permit is suspended — no word yet on whether or not that will be the case.
