The glitzy Casino de Montréal is not just the biggest casino in Canada, it is also the only Canadian stop on the World Series of Poker (WSOP) circuit in 2016. Located in the historic Expo 67 French Pavilion on Ile Notre-Dame just minutes away from downtown Montréal, the casino has been serving up glitz, glamour and world-class gaming 24 hours a day, seven days a week, since 1993. “The building’s iconic architecture gives it the look of a prominent jewel in the Saint Lawrence River,” says Casino de Montréal general manager Kevin Taylor. “The completely renovated and redesigned interior with its giant (three-storey) multi-media wall makes the casino even more exciting for visitors. To round out the offerings, we have five well-appointed restaurants and an all-new Cabaret.” The Cabaret du Casino relaunched in September 2015 with a series of all-star concerts by the likes of Tony Bennett, Gino Vannelli and famed comedian and impressionist André-Philippe Gagnon.

Almost literally. For example, located in the very centre of the redesigned Casino, surrounded by three massive mid-air structures supporting relaxation areas, is a 21-metre tall, 48-screen multimedia installation displaying original video content courtesy of Montreal-based light and sound magicians Moment Factory. It’s an immersive sensory experience like no other, and is representative of the meticulous attention to ambiance throughout. Indeed, atmosphere is key to the re-think. Look no further than the Casino’s new dining areas: four different styles, four different atmospheres. The à la carte resto Le Montréal offers three settings – the atelier du chef, the lounge and the côté urbain – for reinvented classics, as well as an amazing, river-front view of the city skyline.
