Happy birthday, Montréal !

On May 17th, Montréal will celebrate its 375th anniversary.  The city, founded in 1642, will be a glorious sight, offering visitors and locals alike a most festive ambiance.  Beginning with the illumination of the Jacques-Cartier bridge, on a celebratory evening where all citizens are invited, several other special events will be presented throughout the summer.

At Soul.City we are especially honoured to be invited to the celebration!  Beginning May 17th, the app will offer all its users a “festive” urban itinerary, in collaboration with the City of Montréal.  This free itinerary proposes the discovery of twelve important cultural and sporting events across town, while exploring the city’s unique sights… and soul.

Avudo, the Great Invitation, Francofolies, the International Jazz Festival, Montréal completely circus, Just for Laughs, Montréal Pride, Mode et Design, and as well as many other events will make a rotation in Soul.City’s “festive” itinerary.  Taking place in Montréal’s Old Port and “Quartier des spectacles” districts, discover beginning May 17th a unique urban itinerary celebrating Montréal’s cultural DNA.


Jean-Claude Poitras: A unique ambassador of Montreal’s design DNA!

Last December, Soul.City added a new itinerary to its Montreal offering by none other than the emblematic figure of Québécois design: Jean-Claude Poitras. Poitras is a creator who is pertinent to multiple generations, and who continues to innovate off the beaten paths.  For his collaboration with Soul.City, he imagined an urban itinerary associated to the feeling “flâneur”, or dandy of a day.  The itinerary takes us to Mr. Poitras’ favourite places and hidden gems in Montreal’s Old Port.

Soul.City’s proposition meets in every way my own vision of Montreal’s lifestyle, which is made of discoveries, on the other side of the mirror, when the heart beats a little faster beyond the conventional clichés ”, says Mr. Poitras.

Adds Annick Charbonneau, Soul.City’s CEO:  I discovered in Mr. Poitras a man deeply knowledgeable of architecture and history through the itineraries he has created for us.  The result is incredibly rich in anecdotes on Montreal’s lifestyle.

The launch of the “flâneur” by Jean-Claude Poitras itinerary on Soul.City coincides with the launch of Montréal Attitude, a VIP guided tour of the city, accompanied by the celebrated designer himself.  An epicurean adventure, a circuit throughout Montreal’s design DNA, to see the city through a different eye.

Feeling the Christmas magic in Montréal

With a few inches of fresh snow now covering the city, the team at Soul.City is in an effervescent Christmas spirit!  To indulge our festive mood, we have created a “Christmas” discovery tour of Montréal.  Beginning at the artistic heart of the city, Place des Arts, we take you to the city’s Christmas market, and to some of our favourite places to wine and dine in town.  Have extra time?  Take an electric powered Téo Taxi to the Notre-Dame-de-Bonsecours chapel in Old Montréal, certainly one of the most charming churches in our beautiful metropolis.  Christmas… can you feel it coming?
