Randolph Pub in Montreal




Last week I got the pleasure of visiting Randolph Pub in Montreal. It was the last item on my long list of must-do things in Montreal. Well you know what they say, save the best for last! And I did. 
Originally, I had plans to visit Randolph pub with a few different friends while in Montreal. However, they all seemed to fall through for a variety of reasons. However, my amazing wife offered to go with me instead. No offence to the others, but this was an upgrade in my books. 


We arrived shortly after 4pm, when the doors open to this board game paradise. The pub already had a few people playing games & enjoying the happy hour specials. I bumped into Justin, one of the four owners, and he was gracious enough to show me around the place. Justin explained some of the history of the establishment and showed me the numerous improvements they keep adding to Randolph pub. The picture above shows Justin in the newly renovated upstairs space. With the new bench seating, and the high end air conditioner installed, the upstairs space can now comfortably handle an additional 100 customers beyond the the main floor of the pub. 


Tanya & I enjoyed some delicious food and drinks. Tanya had a yummy Quiche with salad, and a Pop Shoppe cola. I must confess, I love Pop Shoppe, as its from London, ON and I lived many great years there. I enjoyed a delightful panani sandwich with tortilla chips, and a smooth St. Ambroise Scotch beer.  


I had a great date night with my wife at Randolph Pub. We ended up staying for about 4 hours and enjoyed some good food, drinks, and fun. We managed to play Roll N Bump, Cinque Terre, Augustus, & Qwixx (a home made copy as the game is not released in N. America yet). The staff were very helpful, recommending/teaching us a variety of games. Overall, a fantastic example of what every board game cafe/pub should and can be.

  2. Hey mate,

    just curious, but what was your opinion of their beer selection? I will be visiting Montreal in January, and might swing by this place as it looks pretty cool.

    Thanks :)

  3. No matter what type of Michael Kors Bags Outlet each individual got, they all had one thing in common. We all know that getting something on sale is like winning a mini lottery, but to find a name brand handbag like Michael Kors Black Friday Sale for instance, discounted is like a slice of heaven on earth. I have personally attacked my husband with hugs and kisses when finding Official Coach Outlet Online at discounted prices.

    Michael Kors Factory Outlet stores can be found in malls all over. MK Outlet and other Coach merchandise can also be found in some boutiques. Inspired by the same material baseball gloves are made from, these Coach Bags On Sale Online are versatile and stylish. Since it's conception, the Michael Kors Handbags Outlet has been produced into a variety of designs, colors, shapes, and styles that have won top pick of millions of women the world over.

    New Michael Kors Bags are the most sought after handbag. Since Coach Outlet Online is one of the most recognized name brands in the world of fashion, you will find A-list celebrities down to small girls wearing them.
