Le Marie-Louise bar-terrace with grill is located on the roof overhead of the Studio-Cabaret lobby. Overlooking St-Denis Street, this new terrace with its breathtaking views will be an ideal meeting place to enjoy a cocktail with friends or some tapas-style bites cooked on the grill. Le Marie-Louise’s comfortable and inviting atmosphere will be complemented by music live.
Open when there are shows and events. Contact [email protected] to book.
The bar-terrace can accommodate up to 250 people. It will be possible to rent this space to organize a private event or for a filming. It is the ideal place for recording various interviews, TV shows or mini-concerts. It is also the perfect place to organize your corporate event.
We find behind this project, the team of Espace St-Denis and that of Molière par Mousso. In terms of gastronomy, we find Daniel Vézina as consultant chef and Samuel Sauvé-Lamothe as executive chef, for the terrace and the entire Espace St-Denis.
Marie-Louise offers an intimate setting where the audience can even find a seat close to the artists, right next to the piano, for example. However, these spots are limited! With the cabaret formula, you can order food and drinks before, during, or after the show, for a complete evening.
Qui est Marie-Louise?
Marie-Louise-Justine Ricard was the wife of Louis Adolph Huguet-Latour. She was a wealthy heiress who owned, along with her family, land and houses between St-Denis Street and Sanguinet Street.
She donated the piece of land located behind Théâtre St-Denis (now known as Brazeau Street) in 1869 to the City of Montreal, with the hope that people would gain access to municipal services. In exchange, she requested that the street be named in her honour. The City agreed to her request. However, in 1964 – when the spirit of the times called for the masculinization of certain street names – Marie-Louise Street became Brazeau Street.
Upon learning of this piece of Montreal’s history, the Espace St-Denis team undertook negotiations with the City of Montreal’s toponymy commission to rename the street back to “Marie-Louise.” And in so doing, to make amends on her behalf. The City of Montreal agreed. While the process of changing the street’s name back to Marie-Louise is ongoing, and in order to do justice to Marie-Louise-Justine Ricard, we have named the new terrace bar at Espace St-Denis “Le Marie-Louise” in her honour. Her name will now resonate well beyond St-Denis Street.
