690 Rue Notre Dame
In Old Montreal, just south of the Financial District, sits The Farsides. Brought to you by John Edward Gumbley (Bord’Elle) and the JEGantic Group, the Farsides is an edgy new take on the restaurant and bar scene. Our blend of culinary styling sets and exotic far easter flavours of Thailand’s shores crashing into the far Western Beaches of Hawaiian cuisine. The results of this fusion is something we like to call Thaiwaiian. A sumptuous combination of authentic Thai and and Hawaiian delicacies, merging familiar flavours with elevated function.
Not only do we consider the firesides to be a unique take on cuisine, we also aim to please with a bran new re-imagining of the Tiki bar concept. Our mixology program features no less than a dozen modern interpretations of classic cocktails you would normally only expect to fin on the Islands.
Stepping into The Farsides is like walking into our version of an alleyway in Brooklin circa 1992. Complete with brick walls as high as the eye can see, fire escapes, graffiti laced faces and believe it or not our very own hand painted basketball court. Add a touch of the exotic with jungle like overgrowth set to the beat of the 80’s and 90’s hip pop and nostalgic memorabilia from the golden age of rap and what you’l find is The Farsides. Montreal you might not know us but we know you very well.
