Here is a list of the best is the top arcade bars to visit in Montreall:

1. North Star Machines À Piastres

Boasting a fantastic location on 3908 St-Laurent boulevard and conveniently across Schwartz’s deli (a personal favourite), North Star has some cool retro decor with exceptional service and a range of unique drinks. As for the games offered, North Star has quite a few classics available. 

Their pinball machines are the highlights as they have been maintained and cared for from the ’60s, making them unique commodities and are still as fun as ever. They also have other classic games such as pong, skeeball, and tabletop hockey for those who want to try their hand at other games.

The bar works on a token system that keeps the fun going as the prices are fair and won’t run your bill too high. North Star is an excellent choice for a fun evening option in Montreal, especially if you’re looking to explore the Main!

2. Arcade MTL

Next up, we have Arcade MTL, located at 2031 Saint-Denis, and is in another great part of town with plenty to visit around. The bar has a cool geeky decor with drinks named after your favourite games, which helps to tie in the whole aesthetic. Arcade MTL offers a laid-back, good vibes spot that is best enjoyed as a hangout spot for you and a small group of friends!
