Is it another Kanye West and Kim Kardashian baby?!
No, it’s a new bar (“barcade” in fact) that just opened at 3908 Saint-Laurent! Referencing the North Star Coin Machine Company, it’s a bar where you can play pinball!
The old address of Korova did not remain closed for long. Three new owners, Adam Kiesler, Marie-Lyne Tarabulsy and Justin Evans took advantage of New Year’s Eve to test this bar/arcade concept during the soft opening.
The vintage concept is the first to see the day in Montreal. Eight pinball machines will be permanently available and you’ll only need a dollar to play! These authentic refurbished machines originate from the 40s to the 80s; thanks to a frequent rotation, a greater variety will be offered to you.
Alcohol will be both cheap and simple, or also more refined. Same for the food, by the way. The menu is in fact divided into “l’expensive shit” or “le cheap shit”, very inspiring categories that say what they have to say!
North Star is opened from Tuesday to Sunday, but you most definitely do not want to miss the grand opening on January 23rd!
