A Charming Building with Over 130 Years of History

Our restaurant and party venues are located in a historic building called Château Saint-Ambroise. Built in 1882, it served as a manufacturing facility for textile and toy companies. Between 1989 and 1999, the building was unoccupied and became run-down.

Thanks to beautiful restoration work and extensive renovations to modernize the building, the building has since been completely remodelled into loft-style office spaces. The original wood floors, high ceilings and proximity to the downtown core make Château Saint-Ambroise an attractive real estate opportunity for businesses.
