The Tavern of the Bottle Houses

In 1982, Édouard Arsenault decided to try his luck at a second building, using approximately 8,000 bottles this time. This tavern-like hexagonal structure was originally used to house the attraction's souvenirs and handcraft items made by his wife Rosina. Today one can admire a large selection of bottles collected by Edouard. Whenever he came across a bottle that had a special feature, he preferred to keep it for display rather than using it in the construction. This building was re-built in 1993, as the severe winter conditions had brought its toll on this house as well. The roof and the central cylinder however were maintained.
