About
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.

Cool bar with interesting decor and a rock/punk vibe. Spacious inside and large outdoor space. Cheap drinks that you can order at the bar or sit at a table for service.

Some games but there should be a time limit - my friend wanted to play foosball but there were some table hogs.

Foufs is a wild, punk club. It's the REAL THING. Uncompromising music and an uncompromising crowd. If you're hankering for a truly lasting Montreal experience, rock up to this joint, get wasted on the cheap beers, and get wasted by the punters. Foufounes isn't for everyone, but everyone should experience it.

We were having an epic time at a show and totally lovin' it until I had to deal with a bish of a bartender and when I asked to speak with the Manager I got the run-around from every employee I spoke to and in the end was never directed to the actual Manager.... Staff was rude but patrons were friendly and the beats were bangin'!

Went here this week. loved the ambience, the music everything was nice. was there about one hour until i got kicked out with my friend. we are two girls 20 years old, I was in a bathroom stall peeing and my friend was in the stall with me waiting since all the stalls were used, all of a sudden this big guy comes banging on the door like a gorilla. he was yelling on the top of his lungs get the **** out Open this door. wow excuse me? i am a woman with no pants on peeing. no, i will not open the door. as we came out he was extremely obnoxious and rude. it was as if we'd did something extremely bad, he was yelling lets go get oht. as im extremely nice about it and simply trying to understand he doesnt care and almost touches me. i couldnt even wash my hands. i was EXTREMELY DISSAPOINTED. it was my first time at foufounes electriques. as he kicked us out, i then spoke with a doorman about it and he wasnt any nicer. i asked to speak with the manager and he replies " youre talking to one " . wow, the respect I got that night. So ultimately I never fully understood why we got kicked out. I mean if theres a rule or a reason we shouldnt be two in a stall ok, fine but why not let the woman know? we arent from montreal, and honestly every girl and her friends go in a same stall. i just was so mad about this because the staff wasnt showing any respect, they were rude and treating us like we had got in a fight or something. calm down. Two young girls were peeing in a stall. So my advice, dont go 2 in a stall and be rude with these men. And why are men going in the woman stall anyway? It should be woman security at least. Very disrespectful.

Stood at the bar for 30 minutes trying to get a beer. Finally, when the bartender came my way all he did is wipe his scummy bar rag over my hands and turned away. WORST SERVICE EVER!!! Go for the music but don't expect to get a drink.

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

What a kickass club! There are levels you can hang out on, different music on each level, and the crowd was weird, just how I like 'em.

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 great and the promotors are good people.

My only drawback is the staff - I've had some rude bartenders. Most of the females seem rude, but there is a dude who works there that's a nice guy.

Great place!

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 with the staff... I found the bar tenders, DJ and security all pretty awesome!

Other people have had bad experiences with the people.. I've never had an issue. In fact, we've made some friends here :)

The place is great. There's a covered smoking area. Pool tables, bars and a separate are with a dance floor and stage. Plus an upstairs area where the DJ is, that overlooks the dance floor/stage area. If you are into rock, metal, punk, etc, you'll most likely have a great time here (if not... Be open minded ;) ).

My only issue (which isn't really a big one) was the hardcore kids in the pit (yes, there was a controlled pit, nothing too crazy). The bouncers were on top of it though :)

Oh and did I mention there were $1 beers before midnight last time I was there?! I don't know if this is typical, maybe it was due to some event in town, but it was amazing! XD

I miss having places like this in Toronto. Foufounes is the beastest! <3

P.S. The washrooms are crazy awesome :D

This place is just incredible. It's like a goth/alternative funhouse. On a visit to Montreal we wandered into the most incredible graffiti, stopped to take pictures and then discovered Foufs. The atmosphere draws you in...from the big spider at the entrance to the industrial decor. It's definitely a 'must see' place to be. Don't miss it when in Montreal!
