The first time I ever came here I didn't realize it was on the second floor but found the doorway because of the pinball machine sound effects they have playing by the entrance at street-level. Pretty sweet touch.

I was wandering home and looking for a quietish place for a drink which I thought would be impossible after 10pm on a Saturday night on St Laurent when I passed by this place and remembered a friend suggesting it. I headed up the stairs...More
This is a really late review (I visted in mid-January) but I loved visiting North Star! It's in a great and accessible neighborhood, and there are so many strange, curated oddities at the location. I think there was the world's slowest moving disco ball, a...More
I visited this barcode a couple of times during a recent visit to Montreal. It was amazing fun. I love the style and aesthetic of the place. It’s very, very cool. I am personally quite useless at playing pinball but have had friends who have...More
I had never been to a pinball bar, and this place set the bar high for any others I may go to. The atmosphere is great! They have many different machines, great selection of beers, and good music. Definitely stop by if you are on...More
This place is amazing, the machines are kept in tip top shape and there is a great selection of games. The atmosphere is cool yet the crowd is warm and welcoming. There is an interesting cross section of people. Arrive early so you won't have...More
This was on my to do list for some time and finally it happened. The North Star Pinball has 14 machines with 1 vintage Jukebox and 1 Photo-booth. The pinball machines range from 1950's to the 1980's. The newest one was Robocop and the oldest...More
The website gives you the sense that this is a hip modern place. We arrived to find it a dark, run down room with about 8 lonely machines and quite possibly the world's worst (and loudest) jazz band playing for 2 patrons up front. We...More

We’re bummed to hear you had such a bad time— it’s a shockingly unusual response— we have a lot of fans on yelp, google and Facebook who really appreciate the place —
I also gotta fact check you on one major detail, as...More
Had a great time, stayed for over 2 hours! The drinks are a great price, each drink came with a token to play a pinball game. We arrived once opened, it was quiet and just what we were looking for. There are several games to...More
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that
dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colourful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
