Pistol, 3723 St-Laurent

by Montreal-Clubs.com Crew

My two comrades and I stumble into Pistol with a few pints under the belt - the party must go on! Standing by the bar among other party-goers and romantic couples, we order 3 pints and head for the foosball table - we recruit a young lady from Toronto to play a two-on-two, the game is on! Situated on the bustling Saint-Laurent/Pine street corner, Pistol is perfect for almost every situation; from drunken fools like us, to birthday parties and casual dates. The venue attracts everyone from the see-and-be-seen crowd, to the more down to earth. Their décor is simple and they even have a subtle tribute to 007.

Any reproaches you ask? First, its success has been its deterrent, because of the limited seating place and popularity it is difficult to get in, let alone be seated. But I can assure you, during the week this place is cool and relaxed, and is great place to sip affordable martinis and watch sports on plasma screens.

The music, similar to the atmosphere, is laid back. Ripping rock-and-roll tunes from all eras; and what is cool about the place is the free-for-all DJ booth. Management offers denizens an opportunity to bring in their records and drop the needle, but the open invitation doesn't mean losing a bet to your friends and playing Bill Withers vocals and 2-Pac instrumentals…on second thought, that doesn't sound too bad.

All in all, Pistol is a place where you can seek refuge with your friends from the pretentiousness that encompasses the Main, and then when you are ready to jump out into the world of fast cars and haute couture, you might just realize, that chilling back with los amigos can be much more entertaining, but I digress!
