Apollo Bistro: New Restaurant with Amazing Design

Posted on June 29th, 2009 by .

There’s a new restaurant in Montréal’s Little Italy, Apollo Bistro, and it’s full of surprises. Here, you get to invent your own meal, bring your own wine, and enjoy it all in an usual setting designed by Alain Forcioli.

Apparently, when the owners of Apollo Restaurant hired Forcioli to do the interior design for their new business endeavour, Apollo Bistro, they had only two criteria: an open kitchen and tree trunks. Forcioli managed to pull it off, contrasting the rustic look of trees with a sleek, modern look.

Nature lovers will be glad to hear that more than 80% of the décor materials are recycled. The chairs, for example, are from Montréal’s former hockey arena!


Alain Forcioli works as furniture designer and manufacturer. He’s the creative force behind Trinity, Koko and the Crystal Hotel. He’s currently working on five sushi restaurants called Tatami, that will open in airports. Look for them soon in Montréal, Toronto and Vancouver – And bring an appetite for beauty! You can see his portfolio.
