The BoulZeye Story
TThe name may be new, but we have been known for many years as “Salon de Quilles Excellence” and Billiard “Le Tux“.
Recognized as some of the greatest places to enjoy bowling in Montreal as well as playing billiard in a friendly atmosphere, the summer of 2013 was the perfect time to rejuvenate our image.
The billiards club had already undertaken changes by adding LCD screens in HD to enjoy sporting events on the numerous televisions. It was also time bring a complete new look to the bowling area. Starting at the beginning of the 2012-2013 bowling season, steps were taken to obtain building permits.
Once the leagues ended in May 2013, the general contractor, electricians, carpenters, designers, painters, audio-visual consultants and staff began the project. We removed 8 bowling lanes and reused the wood to make our new countertops and tables. We removed the acoustic tiles in order to obtain 25 feet in height. We removed all hard plastic benches and replaced them with 13-feet-long sofas. We added big 16-feet by 24-feet HD screens on which we broadcast sporting events and music videos. We added a two-story laser tag arena with a capacity of 40 people at a time, making it the largest multiple-level laser tag in Canada. We renovated our reception/entertainment venue in order to accommodate up to 300 people. It is composed of a stage, screens, projector, a large dance floor, full bar, bathrooms and two billiard tables. To conclude, we expanded the restaurant area, added tables with benches and enhanced our menu.
The summer of 2013 was marked by an investment of $1.4 million, the largest since the opening. Despite the construction strike that summer, we managed to open in time for the beginning of the 2013-2014 bowling season on August 23, 2013.
Stay tuned, as we are pioneering a new concept in the world of entertainment in Canada. BoulZeye, laser tag / bowling / billiards!
