The right venue can make or break a strategic meeting. Although most Montréal hotels feature onsite meeting spaces — which provide idyllic settings for strategic meetings — the following list of venues are ideal if you’re looking for something offsite or “out of the box.”

Happy meeting!

The Rosa Room. Ferreira Café has been a great Montréal’s ambassador of Portuguese cuisine. Upstairs, the Rosa Room, is a semi-private room that can accommodate up to 12 people. The perfect place to hold a business meeting or even organize a cooking class with the chef. ferreiracafe.com
