As part of the $200-million revitalization of the Place Ville Marie Esplanade[2] in Montréal, residents will soon enjoy a brand-new concept: A gourmet biergarten in the city’s downtown. Imagined by Sid Lee Architecture[3] and A5 Hospitality[4], and executed by Sid Lee Architecture | Menkes Shooner Dagenais LeTourneux Architects[5] in consortium, Le Carthcart Restaurants et Biergarten[6] will open in late 2019.

The 3252-m2 (35,000-sf) space will come to life under the future glass pavilion of the Place Ville Marie Esplanade. It will offer seating for more than a 1000 people with 15 restaurant concepts, such as resto-bars, bistros, and cafés. The site will also have a multifunctional space.

In the spirit of the biergarten, the space will have a bright and spacious interior garden.

“We want to celebrate Place Ville Marie’s central location by creating a unique point of access to the underground city,” said Jean Pelland, architect and senior partner at Sid Lee Architecture. “The glass pavilion is an ideal setting for the interior garden, a space bathed in natural light and filled with greenery, where gourmet and festive gatherings will take place.”

As a lively urban square in the heart of a busy district with festive terraces, Le Cathcart Restaurants et Biergarten will echo Montréal’s lively street vibe, acting as a true indoor extension of the city.
