Arcade Fire are ready to open a new restaurant in their home city of Montreal, Canada this summer. A Haitian dining and cultural space, named Agrikol will be launched by the band’s Win Butler and Régine Chassagne in collaboration with restaurateurs Roland Jean and Jen Agg, who run the 6’s noteworthy Haitian spot Rhum Corner.
Agrikol will feature a music and art space in addition to “really authentic” foods and flavors.
“The restaurant is more of an art project. The idea is that it’s a cultural space. The thing that we were really impressed with at Rhum Corner is that it’s this space for Haitian and Caribbean culture and it’s really cool and contemporary,” said Butler who recently launched his own Haitian coffee line.
