1608 - Wine & Cheese Bar

  • 1608 - Wine & Cheese Bar

"Beautiful bar with great views of Old Quebec and the St Lawrence River. If you want cozy and intimate, sit in front of the fire, but if you want to engage with the bartenders and see their mastery at work, sit at the bar. Each drink was a true work of art. My husband had a martini with local Quebec gin giving it a brilliant yellow hue, so aromatic. We had a cheese plate, which was tasty and filling. The bartenders are personable and fun company. Would love to return soon" - decadonna, TripAdvisor

Inspired by the year of Quebec City’s founding on the very exact site of this Bar, the new 1608 Wine & Cheese Bar will offer one of the largest varieties of top Quebec cheeses in Canada, sourced from its unique Cheese Room, and coupled with the top wine offerings the world has to offer.

Overlooking the St. Lawrence River, this new bar will showcase one of the province’s most stunning views.
