1608 has history on its side. The bar, which is inside the Chateau Frontenac hotel, is set on the exact site the city was founded in 1608. Rich hardwood floors, a statement chandelier, and the circular central bar are the focal points of the room. They specialize in wines from around the world, as well as cheese, charcuterie, and small bites from across the province. The menu here is one of the most robust cheese menus in the country, and the precious goods are elegantly presented in clear glass cases around the room. 1608 also hosts events, talks, and demonstrations with local cheese makers and sommeliers. Note: they don't take reservations.
