The spectacular entrance to the old Berkeley Hotel at 1188 Sherbrooke Street Ouest is now a portal into the world of Zú. The marquee, equipped with a digital screen (animated by much-buzzed-about Montreal digital artist Fvckrender), whisks visitors away to a world where innovation and creativity collide.
Step inside a vast hall where Art Deco architecture and contemporary art blend seamlessly and harmoniously. The towering columns of the hall are illuminated by the ingenious work of multidisciplinary artist Jeremy Shantz, reflecting on the aluminum-covered walls—an ode to Alcan, the company which once occupied the premises.
Under a massive glass roof in the heart of Maison Alcan, the Atrium is a historic space where all the heritage buildings of the complex converge. This vast multi-purpose space features a large structure that serves as both a stage and platform, overlooked by an impressive brick wall, adorned by a work from celebrated Canadian artist, Ola Volo. The Atrium is a multi-purpose space with programming that brings together the arts and technology, creators and entrepreneurs. A place where the talent of artists is combined with the innovation of entrepreneurs to create wealth-generating links.

Derived from the French word "âme" meaning soul, Améa is an ode to the vision, warmth and heart behind our menu.

Enjoy authentic dishes made with the highest-quality seasonal ingredients from Quebec and Europe as well as homemade breads, pizza al taglio and pastries. Food made with soul - from our family to yours.
Maison Alcan boasts one of the most beautiful parking lots in the city! Street art duo David Leavitt and David Torres of CYRCLE have transformed the underground parking lot in downtown Montreal into a large-scale installation. Entitled "Present Futurism: Space is Everything", the project features vivid murals in the two-story space. Abstract patterns, neon typography and space-inspired representations are seen on the walls, floors and columns of the garage.
