Gaspar Tavern: An exciting new venue on the rue de la Commune

The Antonopoulos Group is pleased to announce the opening of a new restaurant in Old Montreal, the Gaspar Tavern. Adding to the Group’s many establishments in the neighborhood, the Gaspar Tavern will be influential on the rue de la Commune, near the Auberge du Vieux-Port.

At the helm, Zach Suhl, the former owner of the Brunoise Restaurant and Brewery and Chef Mario Guerrera, former Executive Chef of the W Hotel and Sous Chef of the Cube Restaurant. The Chef will offer accessible and comforting cuisine inspired by British Gastro Pubs with French and Quebecois accents. Among the house specialties, a trio of savory tarts, scallops with pork belly and butterflied Cornish hen, in addition to the “Special of the Day” offering traditional dishes. Local beers on tap will be featured, including the Gaspar house beer, a Montreal lager prepared by the brewers of MTL Premium Lager. In addition, classic and creative cocktails, a wide selection of spirits, and a carefully selected wine list, will be offered.

Led by principles of authenticity and friendliness, the design of the tavern has been entrusted to Camdi Design. Raw materials, tables and oak woodwork, brass accents, antique mirrors and fixtures all perfectly complement the stone walls and the original signature of the room, nestled in an old 19th century warehouse. The long bar made of joists and beams salvaged during the structural work is crowned by a copper counter and completed by a raw bar where one can sit and watch the scaler prepare trays of oysters and seafood. The Gaspar Experience will be complemented with an eclectic background music mix of indie, classic rock, blues and folk. The tavern’s seating capacity will be 120, and in the summer season will overflow with an additional 60 on a terrace on the rue de la Commune. It will also have a room accommodating up to 60 people, available to patrons for the organization of private events.
