Imagined by Sid Lee Architecture and A5 Hospitality, and executed by Sid Lee Architecture | Menkès Shooner Dagenais LeTourneux Architectes in consortium, Le Carthcart Restaurants et Biergarten, a gourmet biergarten in the heart of downtown Montreal, will open at Place Ville Marie in late 2019 as part of the $200-million revitalization of the Place Ville Marie Esplanade.
The 35,000-square-foot space will come to life under the future glass pavilion of the Place Ville Marie Esplanade. It will offer seating for more than a thousand people with 15 unique restaurant concepts, such as resto-bars, bistros and cafés, including three restaurants with table service. A wide variety of wines and cocktails, along with an impressive selection of local beers, all carefully chosen by renowned mixologists and sommeliers, will also be on offer.
In the spirit of the biergarten, the space will have a convivial atmosphere inspired by the fresh, bright and spacious interior garden. "We want to celebrate Place Ville Marie's central location by creating a unique point of access to the underground city," said Jean Pelland, Architect and Senior Partner at Sid Lee Architecture. "The glass pavilion is an ideal setting for the interior garden, a space bathed in natural light and filled with greenery, where gourmet and festive gatherings will take place."
