David Dworkind : Jouney Café

Set up a bar, restaurant and Lebanese bakery in a 24 meter room for 4? More was needed to scare Canadian interior designer and photographer David Dworkind, who made the Jouney Café in Montreal (Canada), whose name but also the raw industrial aesthetic refers to Jounieh, the hometown of the owner located at north of Beirut.

At 1486 on Sainte-Catherine Street, one of the hot spots in downtown Montreal, the Jouney Café takes place in a double-height room located on the ground floor of a brick building.

To install all services offered by Patrick Abdelahad, restaurateur and owner of the place, the interior designer David Dworkind has in enfilade of small square tables and a long counter in ash wood, a large table and finally the kitchens and other service areas, overlooked by a mezzanine where there is a bar.


In the continuity of the industrial architecture of the place, a former commercial warehouse with exposed technical sheaths and massive concrete structure, the master builder has taken the original course of covering the entire south wall of bricks of raw earth and mortar, echoing the typical buildings of Lebanon. In contrast, the partition facing it is much more sober, simply embellished with a dark green sill molded frame, where large mirrors expand the impression of space.

An atmosphere that makes you want to travel and feast.
