Looking for a unique culinary experience in a breathtaking setting? Do not hesitate to take a short road trip to Montreal’s South Shore in Brossard in order to discover the Quartier DIX30’s newest best-kept secret: La Nuit Shanghai.
A spectacular gourmet cabaret specializing in Chinese and French fine cuisine, La Nuit Shanghai promises lively musical and burlesque performances each evening in its immense 6,000 square foot space.
After a 2019 trip to Shanghai — China’s city that never sleeps — hospitality entrepreneur Jacky Lin came back with the idea of creating La Nuit Shanghai as an enchanting place that could bring to life the experience of a gala evening like at Shanghai’s Paramount ballroom after the roaring 1920s.
The creative powerhouse Black Mohawk Productions provides the cabaret’s entertainment with singers and dancers, ranging from the flapper to the burlesque, always dressed in exotic costumes.
Artists — such as the award-winning Joy Rider — offer dazzling performances every night to impress the customers and make each evening memorable.
The gourmet menu — created by executive chef David Yeh and chef Antonio Park — has a part devoted to authentic Chinese cuisine with specialties such as Dim Sum dishes, Wagyu beef and Peking duck glazed with honey served in the traditional way.
Thomas the mixologist has developed a fine line of tea-based signature cocktails, such as a tall glass of Mojitea made with Havana Club 7 Years rum, green apple/Kamaricha Japanese green tea puree and fresh lime juice.
All the cocktails are sophisticated and flashy, some with a smoky effect.
For the interior, Valerie Alt of VALT Design was given carte blanche to go all out in order to transform the space into a majestic and luxurious place reminiscent of The Great Gatsby with beautiful chandeliers and throne chairs 6 feet high.
Offering more than 140 seats to wine and dine a special someone or throw the wildest private party, La Nuit Shanghai is a definite must.
