The Venue: Windsor Station

Windsor Station is a historical and architectural gem in the heart of Montreal’s downtown. Built in the Romanesque Revival architectural style, this grand venue was constructed in 1888-89 to serve as a train station and head office for the Canadian Pacific Railway. Featuring stately arched openings and vaulted ceilings, Windsor Station was designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1975, a Heritage Railway Station in 1990, and a Québec provincial historic landmark in 2009. The Salle des Pas Perdus, once bustling with people waiting for trains, serves as the venue for Le Bal Rouge.
