Tourisme Montréal: News and People What's New in Montréal

Home to some of the biggest names in the video game industry, Montréal is a major player when it comes to gaming research, development, diversity and esports. And this summer Esports Central, the city’s first esports entertainment complex, opened its doors as a cutting-edge space for gamers and events.

Top tier technology

Founded by Delilah Kanou, also responsible for Pipertech – a gaming hardware seller in Canada – Esports Central is the largest video gaming complex in the country. Over 14,000 sq. ft. in the heart of Montréal’s downtown shopping district, Esports Central offers 94 high-end PCs with NVIDIA RTX 2080 graphics cards and 240hz monitors, 25 consoles, 6 sim-racers, a Playstation VR space (featuring games from Ubisoft) and 2 Virtuix Omni VR stations, the latest and greatest in fully-immersive gaming technology. There’s a retail outlet for those looking to take the action home, featuring the bonus level option of custom builds. The ESC restaurant and bar keeps players refreshed between rounds while televisions stream the latest gaming events and sports. The Chill Zone’s comfy couches are perfect for groups to enjoy a round on Xboxes and PS4s, and you can build your own memorable teambuilding excursion in the on-site privatized spaces.

A gathering place for esports lovers – and meetings

But more than just a spot for gamers to flex their gaming skills, Esports Central is also a perfect meetings venue for those looking for the nonconventional. Able to accommodate small groups in private rooms to larger corporate gatherings and major esports events (such as the recent Canadian leg of the Red Bull Player One 2019 world championships that doubled as the centre’s opening event), Esports Central can add that perfect power up to your next event.
