Marché Bonsecours

Offsite Venues
Old Montréal

Inaugurated in 1847, Marché Bonsecours with its striking silver-domed roof rises majestically above Old Montréal as a symbol of the city’s political and cultural heritage. With its symmetrical composition and Doric portico with cast-iron columns, silver dome and simple and varied details, it is listed among Canada’s ten finest architectural accomplishments and provides an ideal venue for cultural and private events and functions.

Marché Bonsecours has been hosting parties and events since the mid-1800s. Today, it offers fully-equipped, air-conditioned, multipurpose reception halls with full catering amenities for parties of 100 to 975 guests. The impressive Ballroom and spacious De la Commune Hall with mezzanine overlooking the Old Port accommodate larger events, while the Vieux-Montréal and Ville-Marie halls are fine-tuned for more intimate gatherings. Stone walls, vaulted ceilings and abundant fenestration afford a unique allure against a stunning backdrop of the St. Lawrence River, the Old Port and historic Old Montréal.
