The French Union building has existed in Old Montréal for over 140 years. Within the walls lies Bistrot de l’Union. Open to all Francophiles in the city, the Bistrot offers quick affordable snacks, such as French-style sandwiches. Operating mainly during weeknights, the doors open on occasion for breakfast, and French pastries and various coffees are served in the salon.
Discussing French Issues
Members and non-members gather in a community-centre environment to discuss issues regarding the French language and international politics. Topics include governments as well as current and past literature. At times, special guests are invited to give public lectures and private events are held inviting the media for special receptions. There are round table discussions about justice and current affairs with community leaders.
A Leisurely Gathering
While snacking at Bistrot de l’Union, enjoy a jazz trio on Tuesday nights, when the cats come out to swing. Challenge another member to a game of dominoes, chess or form a team to experiment with Tarot cards. If you have a soft spot for French issues or want to learn more about the culture, stop by and listen to a few lectures and join in on discussions.
