About

La Sala Rossa (The Red Room) is our bigger venue just across the street. This beautiful room is a historic Montreal building built by the left-wing Jewish community in 1932. It was a cultural / recreational / political center and once hosted Paul Robeson, Eleanor Roosevelt as well as a workmen’s circle during the 1940’s and ’50’s. For the past thirty years the Centro Social Español has occupied the building and continues to use it as a cultural center for people of Spanish decent. The Sala is proud to be a part of this integral piece of Montreal history. The room fits up to 250 people. On any given night, you might find a cabaret, a free-jazz master, a breakdance competition, some good ol’ rock ‘n’ roll, reggae, djs, folk, indie-rock, musique actuelle, film screenings, a flamenco show, poetry readings or some guy sitting in a tent blowing thru your mind. Monthly events that have made the Sala so popular include the Kiss My Cabaret, the Meow Mix and the Goods.

We are usually booked 2 months in advance. If you are interested in putting on an event or booking a show, please send us a CD, cassette or a description of the event at info@casadelpopolo.com or to 4873 St-Laurent, Montréal (Québec) H2T 1R6 CANADA. You can also consult our booking section.
