87 Rue Sainte-Catherine Est, Montreal, QC, Canada
The nightclub Les Foufounes Electric, is a one-of-a-kind showbar and watering hole that exemplifies the 'alternative' scene of Montreal, and has hosted many of the biggest names before anyone knew them. The club looks like a haunted house at a creepy carnival, there are massive spiders and other frightening entities crawling and spooking the façade, overlooking Ste Catherine street, and in the summertime, a second line of defense, in the form of a sprawling outdoor terrace full of tattooed and pierced throng will surely scare away those without a heightened sense of adventure. But treasures await the bold and brave, as Foufs, as it's endearingly called, has hosted Nirvana, Nine Inch Nails, Smashing Pumpkins, pretty much everyone, in the bowels of the haunted house, usually to crowds of a few hundred early adopters. Foufounes, the name literally means the Electric Buttcheeks, has an amazing sound system, enthusiastic crowds and showcases a great selection of the very latest talents. And while the crowd on the terrace might seem unruly, the terrace at Foufounes on a summer afternoon, is one of the pleasures of downtown Montreal. Serving you daily from 4pm to 3am.
