Nacho Libre

I tried Nacho Libre for the first time this Thursday night. I had heard about it several times this summer from friends but I also decided to do some online reading on reviews of the place just before going. The popular opinion was that the service was bad as soon as a few people filled the bar.

Well I had a completely different experience. As soon as I stepped foot in, I was welcomed by the staff at the bar and I was given the menu as soon as I chose a table. The service was warm and fast.

Nacho Libre is a mexican themed bar concentrating on the Lucha Libre world, also known as free wrestling. The menu includes all the favorite mexican fast-food meals and also has a wide selection of tequilas to try. The selection on draft beers is interesting and well priced.

You might also get lucky and go on a night when the dj is wearing a luchador mask. It wasn't the case the night I went to but the music was great even if the dj spot is not the main scene in the bar.

The setting of the bar is also worth mentioning. A lot of big tables are available for groups and there is also a lounge area at the back with a few sofas. In the middle, following the length of the bar, swings for two have been fixed to the ceiling. I'm not sure I would recommend sitting on these if you're there to drink a lot though!

Conclusion: A nice bar to go to when in Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie for a snack and a few drinks. Located on a quiet street, you will be sure to find parking!
