Owner description: 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 rock come here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2011

If you are into any kind of rock or punk music try it. It is a good place after a concert to hang out and have a few drinks and relax after the show. Music is loud, drinks are cold, what else do you need...

“Best Bar Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2010

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!

“I always make it a point to go here whenever in Montreal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2010

Every year a bunch of us take a guys trip from NYC to Montreal, and we ALL love this place.
If you like, rock, metal, punk, goth, etc etc. This club is the real deal. I'd compare it to CBGB in NYC, except on a much grander scale. Not many tourists, mostly locals. I make it a point to visit at least once a year. You can go into the first floor for free, and its pretty good, Drink prices are even or less than the ordinary city prices, the music is pretty good too. Give it a look without investing in the cover, if you like the first floor, Pay a cover and go upstairs.
My recommendation: Pay the cover (changes depending on the night) and go upstairs. Drink prices plummet, you can get completely trashed for much cheaper. The music improves. I think they call the pit "the pool" here, and the music is some of the best. They'll go from Pantera, to Rammstein, to Elvis, and the people in the pit dont miss a beat going from moshing to gothy dancing to swing dancing. I always take notes of new tunes or tunes I forgot about. AMAZING! They have a couple terraces for smokers, plenty of bathrooms. Explore, they have the pool and theres another level above that that's not always open.

“I'm a regular here for concerts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2006

Everytime I'm in Montreal for a show or concert, I have to go to this bar before hand. It has the perfect atmosphere to sit, smoke, talk and drink with your friends before getting really roudy. Not to mention the free pool, foosball and soul caliber.

“Freakin' awesome!”

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.
