Take advantage of the Grand Prix to rediscover this superclub which has undergone a complete makeover on the occasion of its seventh anniversary. A surreal and tropical new mural by Jeremy Shantz envelops the premises while the central bar has been opened to allow us to stay in the heat of the moment wherever we are. Land and sea – and above all freshness – dominate the new menu. Think seafood towers, tartares of all kinds with just the right amount of crunch, and tomahawks judiciously seasoned and grilled to perfection. The famous DJ David Morales is expected on Thursday June 16, otherwise DJ Spade (Drake's DJ) and Donald Lauture (the official Montreal DJ of the F1 Paddock club) promise to set the mood on Friday.
