Bar Salon Officiel

351 Roy East
SEE MAP

Tel. 514.510.1733

Salon Officiel is tucked-away in the corner of rue Roy and rue Drolet, conveniently hidden from the big streets. Yet the place is a little gem of a bar because it has a real DJ (not a computer) spinning tunes and a dance floor where people do actually bust moves, something rare for a bar of this size. Basically, if your boyfriend wants to just sit around, drink beer and stare at other girls but you want to have some fun and dance, well Salon Officiel is the perfect place for the two of you.

What's more, Salon Officiel has managed to create a unique vibe: the whole place is decorated as to remind of a brothel. The walls are covered in red wallpaper, the windows are covered with thin veils, and large classical paintings of naked ladies are hanging on the walls of the establishment.

The place also manages to keep a contrastingly original identity, as Sundays are metal nights, yet on Saturday, it is not rare to see patrons with bottles of vodka on their tables and grooving to 90ies hip-hop classics.

Really, Salon Officiel is a well kept Plateau secret, yet it is often gets jam-packed, erupts in dancing, but always manages somehow to maintain its neighborhood-bar feel.

I went here with a friend thinking it would be a cool place but we were wrong. The music was the only good thing about this place, everyone there acted so pretentious, and there was no common courtesy.. people bump into you and give you attitude, no sorry or thankyous from anyone. my friend ordered drinks for a couple of people who werent close enough to the bar and they gave us attitude and didnt even say thank you. Also the lineup to get in isnt even that long but you have to wait forever because they only let you in when an equal number of people decide to leave. it has potential to be a good place because i loved the way it was decorated, i just really didnt like the crowd. basically, if youre used to going to bars like foufs, cafe campus, diable vert or anywhere similar, i dont think this place is for you.
