The Soprano’s @ John Curtin Hotel

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Bada Bing! The Soprano’s (Stern 2005) is now playing at the John Curtin Hotel. Plays great, has a snazzy colour DMD and swearing is enabled. Food is great at the Curtin currently, countered only by the worst smelling toilets in Melbourne! Great pub none the less.. worth a visit!

John Curtin Hotel
29 Lygon Street
Carlton VIC
P: 03 9663 6350

Note: If, after playing, the player activates the flippers in an LLRLLRLLRLLRLLR pattern, the words “Secret Message” and the number 742. Someone give it a try and send me a photo!

Theatre Of Magic @ The Joint Bar

Good value at $1 per game. The ‘magic box’ is a little temperamental and the machine is rough around the edges generally. Worth a look if you’re in the area though.

Golden Fleece Hotel

Located upstairs at the newly renovated Golden Fleece Hotel, this new spot has instantly become one of Melbourne’s best pinball establishments.

Not only is the line-up of old and new solid.. they’re all in immaculate condition and play very well.

With good food and beer specials throughout the week its well worth a visit.. even just to see the beautiful Medieval Madness in all its glory.

I’m also told that this is just the beginning with more machines to come. We’re becoming spoilt for choice here in Melbourne!

Medieval Madness (Williams 1997)
Wrestle Mania (Stern 2015)
Ghostbusters LE (Stern 2016)
The Hobbit Smauge Edition(Jersey Jack 2016)
