Music. Culture. Cocktails.

Montreal is famous for the nightlife, right? But as young professionals and entreprenurs, we also crave unique options that are still fun but bring something special to the table.
Alas, The McCord Museum heard our calls and created After Hours at the McCord.
Here’s the breakdown: You can visit the museum’s current exhibitions, have a drink at the bar, and indulge in appetizers by Chef Olivier Perret and his team from Renoir restaurant while networking with other young professionals and entrepreneurs in a beautiful atmosphere alongside a live DJ.
The first two editions of After Hours will be held on Thursday, September 11 and Thursday, October 9.
Not only will you have access to the exhibition Music – Quebec: from Charlebois to Arcade Fire, highly praised by media and visitors alike, but on September 11, kicking off at 5 pm, the atmosphere will also be charged with music provided by two DJs, Catherine Pogonat and Philippe Fehmiu, from ICI Musique (100,7 in Montreal).
The evening offers a host of advantages. Admission tickets are $15 instead of $19, and the price will be reimbursed to any visitors who become Museum Members on the evening of the events. You can also become a member during the evening and enjoy a 25% discount on the membership price. Other perks include discounts on any purchases at the Museum Boutique during the evening.
We love the McCord not only because of their famous yearly Sugar Ball event or the fact that it is home to one of the largest historical collections in North America, but also because they are striving to raise awareness amongst the younger generation on celebrating and becoming more invested in the arts.
Vive la culture!
