Fonderie Darling

Offsite Venues
Old Montréal

The Fonderie Darling, a chic, post-industrial building with high-tech amenities, oozes with event venue potential, inside and out.

Renovated by the avant-garde architectural firm in situ in 2002, this foundry-cum-visual art centre has retained its historical charm, with the added bonus of many modern conveniences, such as a docking area with direct access to exhibition spaces, on-site technicians and audio-visual equipment rental. What’s more, the Fonderie also offers artwork rental and an installation service, with an inventory of 100 items from which to choose.

On the inside, exhibition spaces are large and bright, but can be blacked out if required. On the outside, the Fonderie Darling's Place Publique at the front of the building is an ideal spot to host a summertime event. Le Serpent, the on-site restaurant and exclusive caterer for Fonderie Darling events, serves up delicious, contemporary fare to complement any happening.
