MONTREAL, Nov. 21, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - With the winter weather right
around the corner, North America's first and only snow village is in a
frenzied flurry of activity as it gears up for a second year that
promises to be bigger, better—and tastier—than ever before.
Still spinning from their incredibly successful first year, promoters
Carl Fugère, Guy Bélanger and Yanick Tremblay are bringing the Snow
Village back to Montreal—but this time with a cool New York twist. For
2013, the village's architects and sculptors are using the Big Apple as
inspiration for the village's setting, sculptures, décor and more.
Montreal's Snow Village Ice Hotel is also pleased to announce its
partnership with the InterContinental Hotel which will provide hotel
reservation for the Ice Hotel as well as food services for the
Village's trendy Pommery Ice Restaurant.
And that's just the tip of the iceberg! This year's Village will boast a
new layout and added facilities, including a giant heated igloo that
will double as a one-of-a-kind site for conventions, corporate events
and private parties.
And in response to the overwhelming popularity of its Pommery Ice
Restaurant, for 2013 the promoters are doubling its capacity to 100
seats, and will be opening a second outdoor Ice Restaurant in Laval.
Thanks to a partnership between the Snow Village and the Auberge
Saint-Gabriel, the Amarula Ice Restaurant will be a 56-seat outdoor
restaurant located at the Centropolis on Boulevard St. Martin Ouest.
The Amarula Ice Restaurant in Laval will be open-air seven days a week,
serving original weekday lunches, 3-course gourmet dinners and the most
unforgettable weekend brunches north of the St. Lawrence. Dinner
customers will also receive a complimentary entry ticket to the Snow
Village in Montreal.
"The Centropolis was the perfect choice for our first Ice Restaurant
outside the Montreal Snow Village," said Carl Fugère. "Now North Shore
residents can easily enjoy this unique Nordic dining experience,
prepared to perfection with the Auberge Saint-Gabriel's internationally
renowned chef Éric Gonzalez."
The Amarula Ice Restaurant invites everyone to its official ice-breaker
on January 3rd.
The Snow Village pre-opening date is slated for January 4, with the
official launch on January 18.
