Burritoville (Montreal) was a restaurant and concert venue located at 2055b Bishop street in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The venue opened first as a small vegetarian tex-mex restaurant in the NDG neighborhood, before moving to the downtown core, adjacent to Concordia University. During its time as a live venue, Burritoville was a site for underground music, Underground art and culture in Montreal.


The venue initially opened under the name Nation Burrito in 2004 at 5893 Sherbrooke street West in the NDG neighborhood. In 2005, it was taken over by Jono Aitchison, at which point its name was changed to Burritoville.

In 2008, Aitchison opened up a second location in a brownstone building on Bishop street downtown Montreal which he co-managed with two cousins, James and Steve Aitchison, and David Tamas.[1]. The venue included performance areas on its first and second floors, as well as a lending library and yoga studio on its third floor. In 2009, the NDG location closed with the downtown location remaining as the sole base of operation.

During its tenure as a downtown venue, Burritoville sold vegetarian Tex-Mex cuisine[2] [3] [4]. Burritoville was also noted for its contributions to local student life[5][6], and its ecological business practices[7][8][9].

Burritoville acted as a venue for stand-up comedy, screenings[10][11] cultural events[12], university lectures[13] [14], and musical performances by artists including Andy Shauf, Alisha Ruiss[15], Ben Arsenault, Mike Edel[16], and others.

In April 2015, Burritoville was purchased by the Concordia Student Union[17] [18] and in August 2015, it became a cooperative working under the Concordia University Food Coalition[19]. Despite this new structure[19], Burritoville ceased operations in 2016[20] [21]
