This club lives up to its rather bizarre name (in English, "Electric Buns," as in "rear end") with graffiti, a mosh pit and a mostly hippie/punk rocker crowd.

If you like metal, this place is for you. Outstanding music, crazy good prices on both beer and liquor (let alone specials) and a phenomenal location. Don't expect the best selection of beer and liquor, but the atmosphere and prices more than make up for that. It's also my favorite concert venue in MTL. They get great bands, sound is... More

I've seen a lot of different reviews about this place and in my experiences there, I've always had a good time! :) Some people write things like 'It was weird, like, if you are into that rock and punk stuff it's okay I guess' - Research where you are going next time. Some people seem to of had bad experiences... More

The female bartender was so rude, that i thought she was going to hit me when i decided something else than originally ordered... Disappointing experience after i heard amazing reviews about this place, management have to really watch who they hire... But overall good music and crowd

Staff was rude but patrons were... More

This is the third place I really liked in Montreal Amazing Club playing Rock and Alternative Music and packed with totally awesome people that are laid back and easy going! The drinks are affordable...Figure 100 per person and you should be fine!

A great night spot in Downtown Montreal if you are looking for something a little edgier. Definitely not for your average top 40 club patron. I had this place recommended to me by a friend and I was not disappointed. Good space, clean and well priced. The music could have been edgier for my tastes but all in all a... More

I like this place. The patio is big enough for a good group of people and the wait staff is all over it. I'll return.

Awesome decor, many rooms. Haze the maze feeling. Nice decks. Long lines if you don't come early though. Really cool times at Foufs while we were in Montreal. We will be back!!!

Staying in Quartier des Spectacles

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier des Spectacles
The bar-none entertainment district for music and arts, Quartier des Spectacles is an interactive playground that delights the senses. It totals over 30 performance halls, with the vibrant Place des Festivals at its heart. The outdoor event space features glowing towers, glass edifices, and granite-lined bike paths, and hosts annual festivals, concerts, and comedy nights. The cinema, theatres, and exhibition centres are entwined with external art projects, exemplified at Montreal's Contemporary Art Museum and appearing along every walkway of the Promenade des Artistes in the form of sculpture and public works, from digitally-enhanced swingsets to glowing fountains. Design, performance, and alternative music come together here, a stone's throw from the lively Latin Quarter along Rue Saint-Denis, the quintessential after-party spot for dinner and a drink following a day of jazz, poetry and play.
