A three story nightclub that looks like a Castle from the street is a staple of Quebec City. Famed as one of the best clubs in North America, Dagobert is the heartbeat of the nightlife for ages 18-25. And it is only blocks away from the hotel!
- Bars, Pubs, Good times
Quebec City has one of the best nightlife scenes in all of Canada. The Grand Allee, which is the street we will be staying on, is the center of it all. From cocktail bars to pubs that can hold over 500 people, there is something to do for every mood.
- Street Festival
All of the bars and clubs set up outside to enhance the celebration. Two main stages, a ferris wheel, fire breathers and more are present as well!
An iconic symbol for over a century
Château Frontenac, the world’s most photographed hotel, has stood overlooking the St. Lawrence River and Dufferin Terrace for over 100 years. Perched atop the headland, the landmark establishment has become a veritable icon of the Old City. Construction of the hotel began in 1892. Since then, it has been expanded several times, including in 1924, when a central turret was added, and again in 1926 after fire destroyed part of the building.
Charming surroundings, just outside your hotel
The narrow streets leading to Dufferin Terrace and Chateau Frontenac are oozing with charm and cachet, and are well worth taking the time to explore. Rue Saint-Louis and Rue Sainte-Anne are lined with renowned restaurants and delightful shops. They make a great place to warm up before exploring some more.
A little square with a whole lot of history
The site of the first permanent French settlement in North America, Place Royale is steeped in history. It was here that Samuel de Champlain chose to erect his “Abitation,” which served as a fort, storehouse, trading post, and residence after his arrival in 1608. Place Royale is also home to Notre-Dame-des-Victoires, the oldest stone church in North America, built in 1688. With its enchanting surroundings, the square feels like a real-life time capsule!
Shop, Boutiques, Restaurants and Cafe's Await
Rue Saint-Jean is a must on pretty well every visitor’s to-see list. From the superb skating rink in Place d’Youville, the shops, restaurants, concert halls, and historic buildings along the celebrated street offer plenty of opportunities to warm up and take a timeout.
