Looking to eat a delicious dish while enjoying uplifting music? The much-anticipated reopening of dining halls and show venues throughout the province of Quebec offers numerous opportunities to finally discover Le Balcon – a downtown Montreal cabaret restaurant nestled inside the historic Saint James United Church – starting February 11th.
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 February 2022 programming includes:
