The team behind Le Salon 1861 have created an unforgettable location that’s not just a grand events venue but a working, living and breathing collaboration space designed to invigorate and inspire. 

THE PERFECT SPOT FOR YOUR NEXT UNFORGETTABLE EVENT

Built in 1861 as St. Joseph’s Church, a cornerstone of the up-and-coming Little Burgundy neighbourhood, Le Salon 1861 remains an important meeting space for a multitude of groups and local initiatives.

The main hall is perfect for networking, conferences, banquets and presentations, with a multitude of seating options and arrangements available. The in-house farm-to-table restaurant specializes in local produce and cuisine, while the awe-inspiring architecture marks Le Salon 1861 as a truly unique event space sure to leave a lasting impression. 

A PIECE OF LIVING HISTORY

More than just playing hosts to the events held within, Le Salon 1861 operates as an active and creative environment – an entrepreneurial social hub for the greater community. Home to Impact Hub Montréal, your attendees will cross paths with local influencers and entrepreneurs, creating connections and networking that’s rare in other event spaces.

The building also acts as a living laboratory for institutional research in the area of implementing sustainable green building practices and social businesses in collaboration with the McGill Faculty of Architecture and the Desautels Faculty of Management, in effect changing the neighourhood – and further afield – day by day.
