House of Targ, 1077 Bank St, Ottawa, ON K1S 3W9, Canada
Pinball, perogies, and punk. What more could you want in life? Head downstairs to the underground lair.
During the day the stage is quiet, and quite family friendly. There are 18 pinball machines, a great diverse collection ranging from Tales from the Crypt, to Golden Eye, and the new Batman Forever.
Plus there are plenty of classic arcade games. My biggest regret may have been my lack of appetite, because the handmade perogies looked amazing. Sundays are a different story all together. There is a brunch menu, and games are on free play for a minimal charge of $5.
Check their online schedule to see when you can catch a live show.
Lowertown Brewery, 73 York St, Ottawa, ON K1N 5T2, Canada
Location, location, location. Right in the heart of ByWard Market – a must see in Ottawa, you can play some pinball and drink some pints.
The place is spacious and there are plenty of tables to spread out and enjoy a flight, or a maple beer.
The back room was empty – all the better because I had Ripley’s Believe It or Not, Star Trek, and Creature from the Black Lagoon all to myself.
