Montrealers Can Rent A Secret Garden At Hôtel Particulier

As a Montrealer, there's nothing I love more than a good 5 à 7 (especially in the summer) and discovering a secret spot somewhere in the city. That's why I was so excited when I stumbled upon l'Hôtel Particulier Griffintown (HPG)'s Secret Garden.

Located in the heart of one of the city's most bustling terrasse-filled areas, HPG is an absolute oasis for those who want to be part of the action in a more intimate setting, because you and your friends can actually rent it out and have a secret garden all to yourselves! The website recommends using the space for a 5 à 7, brunch, picnic, summer party, dinner or BBQ.

The garden comes with a covered kitchen and bar, ample tables, a lounge and so much more to take any occasion to the next level. You do have to bring your own food and drinks, but you also have the option to bring in your own catering team.

The garden is available to rent for the day ($1,500), a half-day ($700) or by the hour ($10 per person, but not private). It's a huge 4,000-square-foot space, and the hotel allows up to 30 people, so you can always split the cost. A half-day for 30 works out to about $23 per person.

The garden is attached to the most charming hotel with different-sized rooms perfect for groups of all sizes if anyone needs accommodations.

It's the perfect way to celebrate a birthday, a special event or just about any excuse to get together with friends!
