L'Auberge Saint-Gabriel has over 300 years of history within its walls. Not only is it considered by some to be the first Inn in North America, but it was also the first restaurant to obtain a liquor license... way back in 1754.

Needless to say, with that much time under their belt, they definitely know what they're doing when it comes to partying. That's why you really won't want to miss La Seconde Avant Minuit.

L'Auberge Saint-Gabriel will be hosting their "last second before midnight" celebration this year on December 31 with cocktail hour beginning at 7:00PM and dinner commencing at 8:00PM.

The high class dinner will include hors-d'oeuvre, entrées, a main dish, cheese plates, food stations, and, of course, a delicious dessert to end the meal. Each plate for the special dinner event is $165 and includes one glass of sparkling wine.

If you want to do a little more than wine and dine on New Year's Eve, look no further! Starting at 10:00PM, the dinner festivities will give way to a party atmosphere. The theme of the night will be downtown chic, glamour, and sparkles.

Not to mention the extensive bottle service menu, with specialty options such as a 6L bottle of Dom Pérignon Vintage for $15,000! Don't worry, cheaper drinks are available throughout the night, as well.

Here's What's Open & What's Closed On Labour Day In Montreal

There are still a ton of things to do this Monday holiday!
  • Here's a short list of what's open and what's closed on Labour Day in Montreal.
  • If you're heading out, make sure to call ahead to your destination to inquire about reduced hours.

Yes, it's a long weekend! Three uninterrupted days to relax, have fun, and not think for two seconds about things like school or work, or other responsibilities until Tuesday morning. Not to be too depressing but it will be six weeks before we get another official long weekend. 

But let's focus on the positive! This is usually one of the summer weekends that people are trying to pack in their last days of camping or chalet time. But if you're planning to stay in the city it's good to know what's open and what's closed so you can plan out your Labour Day weekend.
