Looking to eat a delicious dish while enjoying uplifting music? The new year will offer numerous opportunities to finally discover Le Balcon – a downtown Montreal cabaret restaurant nestled inside the historic Saint James United Church.
A must-see venue that combines a New York cabaret and Parisian dinner-theatre in the heart of Montreal’s Quartier des spectacles since 2005; Le Balcon offers a fine table d’hôte dinner menu designed by Kitchen Collectif with sweet desserts made by the Crémy pastry shop, an international wine list of mostly private imports, and a signature cocktail list by Crowd Bar & Flair revisiting classic drinks inspired by Italian, South American and Caribbean flavors.
In a festive and intimate atmosphere, the “Balcon experience” also includes top-notch performances by international artists covering a wide variety of musical styles and cultures, including blues, disco, flamenco, jazz, Motown, R&B, salsa, tango, and more from all four corners of the globe.
Le Balcon’s tantalizing early 2022 programming includes:
Flamenco Night with Mirada Flamenca
As part of the Montréal en lumière festival of highlights, on February 17, Montreal-based group Mirada Flamenca takes you on the Spanish coast for an intimate night where Flamenco fans can eat and drink the night away.
