Lobby Bars

Before a show or at intermission, Place des Arts offers a choice of wine, cocktails, alcoholic beverages, soft drinks, water, juice, and coffee, as well as snacks. Also available: full meals in a choice of restaurants.

Enjoy a gourmet snack before your show!

Before certain shows, a pop-up wine bar with catering service by Olive Orange is located at the bar on the cloakroom level in Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier. The gourmet menu is available as soon as the doors open for all ticket-holders to shows in Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier.

Bar service is available in our performance halls: Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier, Théâtre Maisonneuve, and Jean-Duceppe, as well as in the 5e Salle. Place des Arts’ lobby bars open 45 minutes before the curtain goes up, and at intermission, when applicable.

Alcoholic beverages are permitted in the performance halls, except if otherwise indicated by the show’s producer.

Payment methods: cash and credit card.

Once inside the performance hall’s lobby, pre-order your drinks at any bar before the show starts—then skip the line-up at the same bar when you can pick up your beverage during intermission.
