Activity Circuit

May 9, 2016

For those who need to be entertained while terrace-hopping or before seeing the race, the activity circuit is for you !

The Jardin Cointreau

Witness the grand opening of the Jardin Cointreau Thursday, June 9, at noon. The concept behind this bar is to create a garden in the form of a temporary oasis located on the Place Royale, facing Montréal’s Old Port, where Cointreau cocktails will be served. The garden was installed in collaboration with Nüspace and offers you a relaxing ambiance where you can lounge on ottomans and pose your delicious drinks on their low tables. Cocktail fans will be absolutely delighted by their signature beverages: the Vieux-Montréal, the Place Royale and the Grand Prix, all three being refreshingly mixed for the occasion with Cointreau, a famous orange-flavoured liqueur.

Special event, Saturday, June 11, at 3PM  – Art and fashion showcase by Olicorno et Lolitta Dandoy

Multi-disciplinary visual artist Olicorno and fashion journalist Lolitta Dandoy cordially invite you to the Jardin Cointreau’s terrace for an exceptional artistic performance. For the first time ever, Olicorno and Lolitta will take the stage to transform pieces of clothing and hats into thriving pieces of art, thus giving them a new life.
