- North Star - Machines ? Paistres
Want to relive and/or experience playing pinball in a public establishment ? Well, since January 2016 you can once again enjoy the flow of the silverball in our fair city. This is not your run of the mill pinball bar, in fact it is a place where the resurgence of pinball machines in Montreal has finally taken root with an ambiance that will transport you to another time. An exceptional destination with over a dozen beautifully maintained pinball machines, serving delicious cocktails and craft beers. Montreal Pinball is a proud partner to the North Star which is located at 3908 St.Laurent Blvd. We take great pride in bringing pinball back to the streets of Montreal.
