About The Venue
New City Gas is a multi-purpose venue where shows, arts and experiences come to life. Originally constructed in 1859, the New City Gas company complex was built to transform coal into gas to light Montréal's streets and buildings. When renovations first began in 2009, the complex's original structure, complete with vintage and historical elements, were restored and maintained while a live venue was built out with a state of the art sound and light experience. The impressive roofs and stone masonry remain a strong and evocative presence in the urban landscape, visible from all around Griffintown, the expressway, and the train. Today, the complex is recognized and protected as a Heritage Montréal historic landmark. What was once the energy source for all of Montréal’s lighting is now a glowing presence in the city's rich cultural history.
