What’s better than a girls’ night? A girls’ weekend! Think about it—48 hours to let loose, dish, and just have fun. Québec City definitely has everything to offer (and more) to make your weekend special, starting with a castle fit for a princess.

Friday Night: Drinks and Great Eats

To get the party started right, how about kicking off your girlfriend getaway at Québec City’s most iconic hot spot—the Château Frontenac? Start with drinks at Bistro Le Sam, which is famous for its creative mixologists and fantastic view of the St. Lawrence River. Wine & cheese bar Le 1608 is another option that’s simply majestic. If city views are more for you, the rotating Ciel! Bistro-Bar offers stunning views of town from virtually every angle. For dinner, the selection of restaurants serving up gourmet meals is practically endless.

Saturday Morning: Shopping Spree

Might as well pick out a new outfit for the evening ahead, as well as a few souvenirs to bring back home. Whether you prefer strolling downtown shopping streets and their quaint boutiques or hitting the mall for some retail therapy, you’ll probably have to show some restraint or be forced to bring home an extra suitcase.

Saturday Afternoon: A Stroll Through Old Québec


No Québec City weekend would be complete without a stroll through Old Québec. This UNESCO World Heritage Treasure is a must in any season.


Saturday Night: A Grand Night out on Grande Allée

Girls’ night is all about the cocktails! Good news: Bistro L’Atelier just so happens to be a happy hour mecca. With its stylish décor, it’s the absolute perfect spot for a drink. But if you’re more inclined to belt out folk music ballads with your besties, Les Voûtes de Napoléon and La Piazz are right up your alley!

Sunday Morning: The perfect Remedy After a Wild Night out

After a night of partying, there’s no better remedy than a nice filling brunch! Our faves: Le Bouchon Du Pied Bleu, Le Clocher Penché Bistrot, Buffet de l’Antiquaire, Le Cosmos Café, and Le Cochon Dingue.

Sunday Afternoon: A bit of Pampering

Who doesn’t love indulging in a little pampering and “me time”? There are lots of options downtown offering a multitude of spa and wellness services. Unless you’d rather hop in the car for a quick drive to one of the many outdoor Nordic spas available outside of town? It’s the definitely the best way to take full advantage of the final stretch of a weekend that most likely went far too fast.
