You can find the 1 Elgin terrace from the exterior by descending toward Rideau Canal from Elgin Street. If entering the National Arts Centre, make your way to Level P2 and follow signage to
the restaurant.

Please note that the entrance to the event will be on the South side of the 1 Elgin terrace. (Staff will be on hand to guide guests to the entrance.)


If arriving by car, please enter the NAC parking garage via the Elgin Street entrance at the corner of Slater and Elgin Street – just north of Confederation Park.

Once in the garage, please continue on Level P2, turn left and continue to the North side of the parking garage. Access to the interior of the building is across from the G1-G6 parking spots,
and accessible parking is available in the G3-G6 area.


When arriving by Über or taxi, you can request to be dropped off in front of the NAC’s Elgin Street entrance and make your way through the NAC to Level P2. Alternatively, you could request to be dropped off at ‘Stage Door’ (most taxi drivers know where that is), and enter the restaurant on the Canal side.
