Going out to eat can be an experience, no matter where you go. But there are some places, more than others, that will give you a time to remember. I'm talking about themed restaurants, of course! And Montreal has a bunch!
Eating-out at places like this is super fun. Often, the waiters have to put on a kind of persona that they cannot break and it's really entertaining. Obviously, you've got to be open to something like this, but after you get used to it, trust me, it's a fun time.
Like I said, Montreal is no stranger to themed restaurants. You just need to know where to go. I'm telling you, this will satisfy your inner nerd tenfold. So what do you say? You down for a fun night? Well, then onward! To a super-fun, themed restaurant! Here are a couple I found:
Can we agree that ping pong is the nerdiest sport? Come on, it's true! And if you're a fanatic, but you still want to go out for a drink, look no further! Montreal has a ping-pong themed bar! Bring your paddles and your friends because you are in for a night. You could even start a tournament! Drunk ping pong sounds like a pretty fun night if you ask me!
Now, this is what I'm talking about. This is about as nerdy as you can get! This restaurant has a medieval-France theme and they have really taken it seriously. The waiters even dress up! Don't even get me started on the decor and troubadours. Since 1992, they've been offering up a festive and fun environment with great food and drink. I think this would be a really fun way to surprise your friends. Don't tell them where you're going. Just show up to this and watch their reactions.
Now I know you've heard of the Lockhart. It has gotten SO popular in the last year it's crazy! And it answers the needs of one of the biggest fandoms in the world: Potterheads! I'm a huge fan of the Harry Potter series myself, so when this place showed up, I was soooo excited. And let me tell you, it did not disappoint. Honestly, the best part about it is that it's not overly Potter-themed. It's the perfect mix of references and just an overall witchy atmosphere. The themed drinks and decor will blow your mind. You really need to check this one out yourself.
Now, this is by far one of my favorite places in the city. I cannot get enough of it. No matter how many times I go, I am always entertained and have a good time. What is it, you ask? It's a board game bar! That's right you can get turnt while playing a game with your friends. What more could you ask for? They've got amazing food and their drinks are super cute. So feel free to nerd it out on a full stomach. Their walls are absolutely FULL of games. No matter where you look there's something you haven't heard of. And don't worry, they've got a bunch of board game specialists walking around to help you with the rules. Have fun!
This place knows how to do dinner and show. Trust me! You'll never experience anything else like this. Though this might seem like a place that only your parents would go to, you'll be surprised. I'm pretty sure you'll absolutely love it. Live music and dinner is one of my favorite things to do. It's entertainment that just makes you feel good. They specialize in jazz, blues, and Motown, so if you're the least bit into that (or even curious about it), you have got to check this place out.
Now trust me, you will never eat anywhere more unique. There's no way! I'm so mad at myself for never checking this place out. It looks sensational! First of all, it's a BYOB place so that's awesome. Second of all, it serves delicious middle-eastern food. Third of all, there are professional belly dancers all over the restaurant. They are dressed to the nines and ready to entertain you. Trust me, you will be impressed. This looks like a super fun place to eat. I implore you to check it out.
