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 an 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.

  • During day time, a guided tour is available from 10:00 till 4:30.
    At night, it is included with your table d'hôte.

Business

In 1878, Canada votes on a Prohibition law forbidding the sale of alcohol. Underground bars, also known as “Speakeasies”, opened their doors to counter that mesure. Adorned with secret doors, hidden bars and private rooms all linked by an ingenious maze to trick the morality squad. During the day, lunch and bar service are offered along with a guided tour. At night, the whole place transforms itself into a supper club.
