We're thinking of going to the newly opened Factory Bar Resto (on St-Laurent Blvd) for my mum's birthday dinner, but can't seem to find any reviews on it yet. Has anyone been? Any reviews on this spot would be much appreciated!
Thanks!

  1. on St-Laurent where ?

    1. does Factory reference the Warhol factory... if it does, I dislike it already... even if it isn't, I dislike it for reminding me of the WF.
      no I haven't been

        chickenbruiser, I'm not sure what the concept is based on, but thanks for the comment.
        Maximilien, It's located at St-Laurent and Sherbrooke (3435 St-Laurent).

          There's a "review" here, with some pictures : http://irinashakhova.wordpress.com/20...

          I'd sure never bring my mother in a place like this ! Even less for her birthday...

            Thanks for the link... my mum is pretty trendy and would actually like a place like this, but maybe not for her birthday lol

            Factory is short for "Beer Factory" in reference to the original concept which was left behind during the final construction process

        2. It has the feel of an "upscale" cage au sport on game nights, plenty of tv, ambiance is good as well.

          I had a bowl of chili which was good, ribs less good (not bad but nothing impressive)

          1. There was a mention of it in Voir's last week (not a review):

            L'horaire du Canadien de Montréal fait concurrence à votre événement? Pour vous assurer la collaboration des fans de la Sainte-Flanelle, conviez-les dans un endroit équipé pour la diffusion des matchs. Soyez rassurés, il est possible d'accommoder ces sportifs de salon sans lésiner sur l'ambiance et le décor du restaurant. Un nouveau venu sur le boulevard Saint-Laurent répond à ces critères, soit le Resto-bar Factory. Fusion entre la taverne et le club, entre un décor chaleureux et une ambiance décontractée, ce restaurant propose un menu de style cajun qui plaira au plus grand nombre. Côtes levées, mini-burgers ou gumbos sont préparés au goût du chef Alexandre Cohen, qui est déjà passé par les cuisines du réputé Joe Beef. Quant à l'issue de la soirée, que ce soit pour célébrer une victoire ou pour oublier une défaite, la fête se continue jusqu'aux petites heures du matin dans ce local qui a déjà abrité le Leblanc et la Commission des liqueurs.
