    Taverne Jos Dion: Quebec City's oldest watering hole

    by Jefie Written Aug 20, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This little tavern has been around since 1933, which makes it the oldest bar still in operation in the city. It's always been a blue-collar sort of place - and it still is - but more and more visitors are dropping by to get a taste of the tavern's authentic atmosphere, and you don't have to worry about feeling out of place: the staff will make sure to give you a warm, friendly welcome. Beer is not expensive, and if you come at lunch time you can arrange to have some pizza delivered from the place next door. Happy hour is usually a busy time, with the typical crowd of workers dropping by for a drink or two before heading home, and the place also gets pretty lively in the evening whenever there's a hockey game on TV. It truly is a fun and unique place to go for those looking to enjoy a real local experience!

    Dress Code: Very casual

    Taverne 321: $4 La Pinte!

    by johngayton Updated Oct 22, 2009

    This is a proper drinker's bar with no frills decor and a simple pizza menu to cater for those beer munchies. The clientele are mostly male, singly or in small groups, out for a few beers and the normal pub-style shooting of the bull. There's the usual hockey games and reruns on the big screen TV's, a pool table (if I remember correctly) and a couple of gaming machines.

    Bar staff, all male, are professional but cheery with it and even though my French isn't up to conversations I found the atmosphere genial and laid-back.

    At 4 bucks "pour une pinte" 321 suited me.

    Smoking Canopy!

    Passing Through the Walled Fortress

    by Bwana_Brown Updated Sep 8, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When we walked into the Old City for our fancy evening meal, we passed through the St. Jean gate in the wall around the city (photo taken earlier in the day). The fortifications for the city were begun by the French in 1690 with a series of redoubts linked by palisades. With the fall of the city to the British in 1759, it was not until after the American Revolution that stronger walls were erected (1778-83), after the city beat off an American attack. Further fortifications were added between 1786-1812 during the Napoleonic Wars period. The walls run for 4.6 km (~3 miles) around the Upper City and are about 12 m (40 ft) high and are between 2-8 m thick.

    Great place.

    More crowded than "Les Yeux Bleus"

    Dress Code: very casual..

    Coffee' club .People in Quebec enjoyed coffee' talk as Paris people .U can stay on the talble long as you get tired .They open bar also ,so if u want drink then your welcome.
    -Try buy red wine:DUMANOIR or white wine :L'AMBLANCE make a nice gift when back home.Quebec is excellent about produce wine in Canada.

    Dress Code: -If u like casual then go to normal coffee' club or bar around the town.

    Nightlife is a paradox on...

    by rscimagery Written Sep 8, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nightlife is a paradox on Mountain at tremblant. If you're 18-21 you will be in heaven. You can drink legally with the other children. ID's are not even checked. However, if you are a bit older you will be hard strapped to find a good time. Try Le Petit Caribou for the youngster scene, and the Diable Brewpub for a more sedate scene. La Forge has a killer barrel of Hogardeen as well as a nice Scotch selection, but again, the excitement factor is limited. Weekends pick up a lot, but weekdays are best left for sleeping.
    18 year olds drinking like they are seasoned professionals.

    Dress Code: Club. Minus 10 years. It is not uncommon to hear (repeatedly) music that was 'out' in the stares years ago (think Macarena)

    Just an awesome show. Splurge for the VIP tickets if you can - you get a private tent with cocktails, appetizers. The 'goodies' awaiting us during the intermisison where out of this world!

    Dress Code: We thought we'd better dress up as we had VIP tickets, but was all casual.

    One of the best places in Quebec to hear folk music.They have music all week long, usually a singer/guitarist, sometimes duets. You'll hear song from Quebec, France and also english songs. The staff is great, and the caliber of the musicians is pretty good...No sequencers/machine/tape crap!

    Dress Code: Very relaxed and formal

    I'm afraid we did not see any nightlife, although there has to be. There were signs that mentioned jazz-nights and concerts but we did not see a discotheque (but that does not have to say that there isn't one). I should say, check it out!

    Museums there are enough, and restaurants too. So you do not have to sit in your hotel at night.

    This band had a lot of energy and interacted well with the crowd. They were singing everything from U2 to Clapton to some French songs that I didn't recognize.
