Maison Du Bootlegger – Attrait

About

In 1878, Canada voted the Prohibition law forbidding the sale of alcohol. Each Québec county would vote to authorize or not the sale of alcohol…Undeground bars, also known as Speakeasies, opened their doors. In 1940, an American opened the Club des Monts, officially a hunting club, with secrete rooms linked through a Labyrinth of narrow corridors, where you can even find a dedication by Elvis Presley. Alcohol was served and consumed illegally until 1964 when it finally became legal. This place today has become La Maison du Bootlegger. Lunch and bar service with a guided tour during the day. At night, it becomes a supper club.

  • At La Maison du Bootlegger, people vibrate every night to the sounds of a exhilarating show starring Joey Tardif and the Bootlegger House Band. His exceptional voice and charisma have made Joey a true rocker whose performances on the « Épopée Rock » program resonated deeply with an entire generation for more than 7 years. Our band offers you a 2-hour show without intermission. Rockabilly, rock & roll and alternative style at their best! An electrifying evening where the expression « surviving the Maison du Bootlegger » takes on its true significance when changing into a bar-dance club where people have fun and dance and alcohol flows freely just like during the Prohibition days.

  • The daytime guided tours last a full hour and cost 10$/person. Hourly tour for a maximum of 17 people.
    Daytime guided tours’ schedule:
    Beginning of June + September and beginning of October: weekends only
    From Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day (June 24) to Labour Day (First Monday of September): 7 days a week.

Business

The Bootlegger’s House created a unique and original concept that offers you a memorable evening composed of a guided tour… exquisite food… and a rock & roll show with Joey Tardif and The Bootlegger House Band.
To fully enjoy your evening… a table d’hôte per person is required.You’ll then visit a distinctive living room, hidden chambers and the "playroom". Notice the alambic, the old pictures and the furnishings from the time that still adorn the scene.
A little treasure trove of history
Visitors will be amazed by this colourful and vibrant place as was the character who owned it for over four decades.

    Food is ok but what you need to see is the building itself. Built during prohibition there is a maze within the restaurant. Dine in a unique piece of history, and a truly 1 of a kind...
