This Montreal Bar With Glowing Cocktails Is Made Especially For Geeks & Gamers
  • Montreal bar Hangar 51 is made especially for geeks and gamers with a retro game room and even some simulator pods.
  • Some of the colourful, glowing cocktails are inspired by video game characters.

Though it looks like the Pokémon-themed pop-up bar isn't coming to Montreal after all, locals still have the opportunity to test their gaming skills while sipping some colourful cocktails. Hangar 51 on St-Laurent bills itself as "a different bar, for gaming or simply chilling in a rad geek spirit."

"The bar offers a [relaxed] ambiance in an industrial decor stuffed with artifacts and fun collector’s items," its Facebook page further explains.

Inside, a wide selection of games awaits.

Customers get free access to the retro room, its consoles, arcade games, and pinball with the purchase of one drink upon arrival.

For $8 per person, thrill-seekers can also try out the simulator pods. The immersive games take passengers on a wild ride through one of two scenarios presented on giant interior screens.

"With its retro-futurist simulators, its musical choice, and welcoming team, the Hangar 51 diffuses an incomparable techno mood where you can relax after work or have lots of fun with your friends."

The cocktail creations are perhaps the main attraction.

Themed-drinks like the Pac-man and Metroid heighten the bar experience. 

Hangar 51 confirmed to MTL Blog that there's even a Pickachu cocktail.

Other beverages come with flashing lights and under bell jars filled with smoke.

The whole space feels like a speakeasy in the Star Trek universe.

The bar is host to a number of special events, as well.

In the month of March, alone, there's a comedy night, speed dating event, karaoke, and a "special" Harry Potter quiz evening. 

Then, on April 4, there's a pop-up store featuring the work of local artists.
