Quebec City offers an unparalleled charm to romantics and francophiles. A stronghold of the French language in North America for more than 400 years, Quebec City also has a captivating history. It’s from this genuine fertile ground that Quebec City Pride Festival and the LGBT+ nightlife stem. In fact, Le Drague Cabaret Club – an emblematic bar for the community – sits on St-Augustin Street and is visible from the very popular and busy Saint-Jean Street. Similarly, the St-Matthew’s is not far away. Warm and welcoming, they both have a terrace where a drink is most welcomed after a great day’s visit to the Citadelle, the Plains of Abraham, the Dufferin Terrace of the iconic Château Frontenac, the Museum of Civilization or the docks at the Old Port. Don’t get us wrong; Le Drague Cabaret Club also knows how to turn the party up!
For those looking for a more relaxed and pub vibe, la Ninkasi du Faubourg located next to the Drague Cabaret Club is very open to the community. Likewise, the Irish pub Le Nelligan, which used to house Quebec City’s lesbian bar – l’Amour Sorcier – is also a good ally.
Feeling more hip and trendy? Downtown in Nouvo St-Roch, you’ll find La Korrigane microbrewery which will welcome you with great openness!
