In Montreal there are only few underground bars and restaurants. However the ones that exist are very dynamic and offered concerts and events on a regular basis.
The Foufounes Electriques
The Foufounes Electriques can be translated as the electrical buttocks. It is a bar, a club and a concert hall which has been founded in 1983. It is one of the places of reference for the underground scene of Montreal because of its longevity but also because of its dynamism.
The Foufounes Electriques is a pleasant place where you can simply enjoy a beer while listening to some good music. You can also listen to a metal concert in the other room upstairs.

L’Auberge du Dragon Rouge
For more than 20 years, L’Auberge du Dragon Rouge revived the medieval mind in Montreal. Immerse yourself in the atmosphere of a medieval tavern. In a friendly and festive atmosphere you will be able to drink beer in a cauldron, while eating some dishes inspired from Middle-Ages such as boar shank confit, or maybe you will let yourself be seduced by the Gargantua dishful. At the end of your meal try the Dragon Blood; an unforgettable flavor shooter. Waiters will be at your service to give you advice and to host the night both with minstrels.
