Griffintown + a historic building = a new phenomenon in Montreal!

What’s new in Montreal, and more specifically in Griffintown? A new hall that’s like no other: the New City Gas!




A true industrial and cultural legacy of the city, New City Gas opened its doors to the public last spring. Long awaited after many months of renovation, it’s a real gem that’s now available for events of all kinds!

This former coal-processing plant built between 1859 and 1861 has been completely transformed to create a site both modern and historic, and quite simply unique.

In the heart of booming Griffintown, it’s now used as a hall for concerts, conferences, exhibitions and corporate events! Behind its walls of brick and stone, New City Gas is an adaptable space, and has much to offer:

  • A capacity of 2,000 to 3,000 people
  • 2 mezzanines
  • A main hall that looks like a hangar with a cathedral ceiling
  • A checkroom
  • A bar
  • A terrace
  • Modern LED lighting
  • And many surprises!

To get an idea of what this new hall can offer for your next corporate event, don’t hesitate to take a look at its full programming schedule via the website,! As proof of its new-found fame, many international artists (such as David Guetta, Moby and DJ Tiesto) have performed within its walls and, like us, were captivated by the exceptional character of the place!
