There's Actually A Dictator-Themed Restaurant In Montreal Called "Vladimir Poutine"

Thanks to Trump, we all know of the infamous Vladimir Putin, unless you've been living under a rock.

Ah yes, the president of Russia, where, frankly, nothing has come from his leadership... until now!

Nope this is not fake news – there's a restaurant in Montreal cleverly named Vladimir Poutine! This restaurant has been open since March of last year and is located in the heart of downtown.

Not in the mood for Putin? You can try their other dictator-themed poutines like Mussolini, Fidel, Kim and Napoleon. 

There's also some hysterically named burgers – Bush, Chavez, and yes even the notorious Trump. 

If the name doesn't make you want to instantly go there (it's absolutely witty), the food definitely will. This restaurant definitely has our attention. 

Vladimir Poutine offers a lot, everything from catering, to an outdoor patio, poutine and cute-bite sized burgers. Even the decor of the restaurant resembles the Kremlin. 

If it's your birthday, you're going to want to head there with your friends. They're offering a great deal: a table for 5, a FREE meal and FREE champagne! 

The perfect spot to head to this weekend!

Here's What's Open & What's Closed On Labour Day In Montreal

There are still a ton of things to do this Monday holiday!
  • Here's a short list of what's open and what's closed on Labour Day in Montreal.
  • If you're heading out, make sure to call ahead to your destination to inquire about reduced hours.

Yes, it's a long weekend! Three uninterrupted days to relax, have fun, and not think for two seconds about things like school or work, or other responsibilities until Tuesday morning. Not to be too depressing but it will be six weeks before we get another official long weekend. 

But let's focus on the positive! This is usually one of the summer weekends that people are trying to pack in their last days of camping or chalet time. But if you're planning to stay in the city it's good to know what's open and what's closed so you can plan out your Labour Day weekend.
