What does Montreal and Monaco have in common? Fast cars as in Formula 1 and fabulous French cuisine—License IV

You can find a little bit of Monaco in this once Irish neighborhood called Griffintown.  Nestled on 1524 Notre-Dame West Street is a vintage looking French bistro called License IV. The music is unashamedly French and rightly so.License IV

For the 51st edition of the Grand Prix du Canada this elegant Parisian style Bistro will be serving something special. Formula 1 will be on the screens whilst two famous DJ’s Stéphane Cocke et Laflèche spin magic in the air.

Owners, Ludvic Marionnet and François Duriez and the team of License IV have curated a theme of the Grand Prix of Monaco and the Grand Prix of France. Keeping in mind of the circuit of Le Castellet, they will offer concept nights with the best of motor sports, gastronomy and dance nights. Read about our review of License IV here.
