Fonderie Darling information
Lonely Planet review
Tucked away in a little-visited corner of Old Montréal, the Darling Foundry hosts avant-garde, often large-scale exhibitions in its two sizable showrooms. The brick industrial building, which dates back to the early 1900s, once housed a prosperous iron foundry and is today home to the gallery and live-work studios for artists. The space also houses the Cluny Artbar (entrance around the corner on Rue Prince), a fine spot for coffee, desserts or light lunch fare. In the summertime the foundry hosts occasional Thursday-night street events (when admission is free). Check the website for upcoming exhibitions.
