Live Music Bars and Restaurants

Looking for a fun place to go out for a drink while you’re in Québec City? Why not try a local bar de chansonniers, basically a bar, pub or restaurant with live folk music. Enjoy a unique and festive atmosphere reminiscent of a night by the campfire singing along with friends as someone strums the guitar. It’s the perfect opportunity to discover (or rediscover!) the best songs in the Québec repertoire and meet locals in a place brimming with local flavour.
