The good news is that Québec City and its surrounding area abound with classic and trendy spots. Plan ahead or go on the spur of the moment. From the Hôtel de Glace to chic urban resto bars along Grande Allée, from a flower-filled terrace to the presidential suite, museum exhibit halls to the inside of a former church, the sitting room of a historical home to a lounge featuring the latest technology, from the top of a mountain to an underground vault… Québec City has all you need to surprise and delight clients regardless of the nature or purpose of your get-together.
Happy Hour in Red and Blue
A pub, grill, lounge and sushi bar all rolled into one, Hôtel Plaza Québec’s Ginger provides many reasons and opportunities to visit. Drop in morning, noon and especially at day’s end. Its strikingly trendy décor is perfect for both small business gatherings and informal drinks among conference-goers.
Cosmic Happy Hour
For 15 years now, Cosmos has been synonymous with cocktail hour in downtown Québec City. Cosmic fever has even spread to other districts, namely Québec West, whose Hôtel Classique features a Cosmos. From the moment it opened in 2001, the establishment has been flooded with business clients looking for a friendly and hip atmosphere. The tradition remains as strong as ever since the resto-lounge’s complete makeover two years ago. The décor, which features colourful furniture, crystal chandeliers, a circular bar and central fireplace that encourages stimulating conversation, was designed by Daniel Lussier of Dagisco. Thanks to the eye-catching visuals and great ambiance, Cosmos has become one of the region’s top destinations for impressing guests during cocktail hour.

Happy Hour at the MC Lounge

Wood furnishings, white booths with plump cushions, beige stone walls… This refined contemporary space can accommodate up to 90 people, with 20 seated at the bar.
Classic Happy Hour
Fairmont Le Château Frontenac’s very classy Bar Saint-Laurent & Lounge, which was privy to important discussions between Churchill, Roosevelt and Mackenzie King, is the perfect place to sip a scotch or martini.
Featuring classic wood trim and padded leather chairs, the lounge also has a terrace that overlooks the famous Dufferin Terrace and the stunning St. Lawrence River.
