Going Out in Quebec City this Summer
If you didn’t already know, the new in street in Quebec City is St-Joseph. There was a time when Grande-Allée was the one that made the hearts of Friday night party-goers beat, but to have a great night this summer, I recommend staying in the lower end of town. That’s where things are happening!
Your evening can start (or finish) with great food for $5.95 at Bureau de poste. I’ve tried ¾ of the dishes on the menu, and I promise that they beat a late night McDonald’s!
Tip: try Bureau’s Bloody Caesars (the Bloody expert in me totally approves!)
Where to next? It depends on your #mood. Are you in the mood to dance around, jump, and sing? Visit District St-Joseph. A restaurant earlier in the evening and a club later, you’ll find what you’re looking for at District.
If you want to keep things chill, try Trash Bar. You can watch skaters there (or have a go yourself if you’re a skater at heart) and there are beer pong tables!
You would have rather gone out in Ste-Foy, but your friends dragged you to the lower end of town? No problem! St. Joseph Street now has its own Shaker – a must in Quebec City for its tartars, awesome promotions, and original cocktails. You can now enjoy going there without having to make a detour, as it’s next to all your other favourite bars.
Tip: Wednesdays and Sundays are the best days to go to Shaker, as the wine is listed at the same price as the SAQ.
These are my go-to spots, but St-Joseph Street is full of good restaurants and bars. Definitely check it out during the warm months!
Have a great summer!
