Bootlegger house

A Warm Drink from the Bar – Photo de La Maison du Bootlegger, La Malbaie

1878, Canada passes the Temperance Act which prohibits the sale of alcohol. Each county in Quebec will vote on whether they want to allow alcohol or not. Charlevoix will vote no… Underground bars will then open their doors, also called Speakeasy. In 1939, an American opened the Club des Monts, a hunting club with its official side, but also its secret rooms connected by the cramped corridors of an astonishing labyrinth where we even find a dedication by Elvis Presley. Alcohol will be served and consumed illegally until 1964 when it will finally become legal. Today, this place has become La Maison du Bootlegger. In the evening, everything turns into a supper club.
