You probably didn’t know about it, and that’s the whole point. Club 357c is a private club for the most elite of members and is a well-kept secret. How to become a member? You don’t. Only by invitation and a thorough screening can you become one. Being a member has its privileges, including some of the rarest opportunities to network with the rich and famous. When the Prince of Monaco visits Montreal, he stays at Club 357c. When Canadian entrepreneur, philanthropist, poker player, space tourist, and co-founder of Cirque du Soleil Guy Laliberté needs a place to do his bidding, he frequents Club 357c. It’s no wonder; more than $50 million have been invested in the reconstruction and modernization of this historic 19th century building on De la Commune. No one holds any real facts, but rumours are that the yearly membership fee is 3 500$ and that no more than 1,000 members have existed in the past 10 years of the club’s existence. Members have access to a spa, a terrace, a dining room, lounges, as well as meeting rooms. Bills are never handed physically and are billed to the member’s respective account. Acquired in 1997 by millionaire Daniel Langlois, founder of Softimage and Ex-Centris, all of 357c’s profits go towards the Daniel Langlois’ Foundation for the Arts, Sciences, and Technologies. 357 de la Commune O, Montréal, QC H2Y 2E2 (514) 499-0357
