Plan Your Visit.
Got a question? Maybe We Can Sort It Out Here.
WHEN ARE YOU OPEN?
Wed & Thurs: 5pm - 12pm / Fri: 5pm - 2am / Sat: 11am - 2am / Sun: 11am - Late
*sometimes we open on Monday & Tuesday nites at 8pm if a special concert is booked - consult our concert calendar.
ARE KIDS WELCOME?
Absolutely! We are family friendly until the live music starts (8pm weekdays & 9pm on weekends). We even have step stools for junior wizards so they can reach the games. When we switch over to a live music venue format all patrons must be 19+ to stay.
DO I NEED I.D. TO STAY FOR THE SHOW?
Absolutely! You MUST have identification proving you are over 19 years of age. We are super super strict about this policy. It’s simple…. just bring some I.D. and avoid the disappointment of being turned away at the door.
DO YOU HAVE AN ATM
Yes we have an ATM because all transactions at TARG are done in cash only.
DO I HAVE TO PAY FOR COAT CHECK?
Nope! But we have 2 large coat racks were you can safely hang your winter duds.
PARKING & STUFF?
Best place to find parking is along our cross street - Sunnyside. If you are down with public transit, the #6 & #7 stops right in front of our door.
DO YOU RENT HOUSE OF TARG FOR PRIVATE FUNCTIONS?
We sure do. Visit our Party Bookings page for rates.
HOW MUCH DO THE GAMES COST
General rule: Classic Arcade Machines = 25 cents & Pinball = $1
That being said there are a few 50 cent & $1 video games. We also always have a few 25 cent pinball machines permanently on location. Prices are marked on the machines, do some exploring.
DO I NEED TO BUY TOKENS?
All of our machines use standard Canadian coins. If you need to convert your paper money into coins just use our magical change machine located next to our ATM.
WHAT’S GOOD ARCADE ETIQUETTE?
- Never put a drink on a machine (electricity and liquids are not pals). Use the cup holders instead. Putting your purse or jacket on top of a machine is also a huge faux pas.
- Respect the machines. Slamming your fist on a pinball machine out of frustration is dangerous & it makes you look like a dork.
- Respect Others. Don’t hog the games. Take a look behind before playing again to see if someone else is waiting to play. You can even invite them to join you for a game. Have Fun and make new friends.
WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH THIS FREEPLAY THING?
Every Sunday nite AFTER 8pm there is a $6 cover charge (or $10 for & a friend) but we set all the games to FREEPLAY. That means unlimited classic arcade and pinball action all nite longs. Again FREEPLAY starts AFTER 8PM & is a 19+ event.
WHAT TIME DO THE CONCERTS/SHOWS START?
During the week we start charging admission at 8PM & on weekends 9PM.
HOW MUCH ARE THE CONCERTS/SHOWS?
It depends on who is playing, please consult our show listings for prices.
IF I’M THERE BEFORE THE SHOW DO I STILL PAY THE COVER?
Yes. If you are going to stick around for the show you will be required to pay the cover and get a stamp. That’s how these hard working musicians pay for gas!
WHAT KINDS OF BANDS PLAY AT HOUSE OF TARG?
It changes from nite to nite - Rock, Metal, Punk, Indie, Country, Puppet Shows. Consult our calendar.
I HEARD IT IS LOUD THERE. WHAT’S THE DEAL?
Some consider our Punk & Metal shows to be loud. That's the nature of those music genres. We always have inexpensive ear plugs available. Best advice is to check the listings before your visit.
Once you try them you will never ponder the question again.
WHAT KIND OF PEROGIES DO YOU SERVE?
Check out our menu.
WHAT TIME DOES THE KITCHEN CLOSE?
We serve our world famous handmade perogies until 30min before close nightly. We also offer Late Nite Perogi Wizard Boxes Fri-Sun all nite in case hunger strikes in the nite.
IS OUTSIDE FOOD & DRINK PERMITTED?
Nope, we are a restaurant & serve world famous handmade perogies.... we can't even imagine what other kinds of food you would want eat :)
WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH THE TARG SUNDAY BRUNCH?
Every Sunday we serve our awesome take on brunch from 11:00 am - 2pm. Eggs, bacon, kielbasa sausage, toast, coffe/juice & PEROGIES. It comes in 2 sizes and there's a Vegan option. Our regular dinner menu resumes at 3pm.
