Cropped profile picture of Montreal artist Stereo


The Village

Stereo is a nightclub and afterhours club that primarily books melodic & progressive house and techno artists. It is known for its incredible sound system, which is both precise and thunderous. It has one of the best, if not the best sound systems in Montreal. Stereo is a sound temple for many. Some go to Stereo after a night out elsewhere, while others show up at midnight. Some even go to sleep, then wake up in the dusk of the night to show up to dance in Stereo until the sun rises and beyond.

The Village

NEWSPEAK is an electronic music club with a dark and intimate environment. During the pandemic, the venue upgraded its already good sound system to a set of 4 rebuilt Turbosound TFL 760H’s with 6 large subwoofers. Put simply, the sound hits HARD in this venue. Along with the sound, the venue is known for its impressive light system and most importantly, the quality of the artists it books.

Club Pelicano

Ville Marie

Club Pelicano is an intimate elevated neighborhood bar with wine, cocktails, Peruvian-Japanese bites, and a dancefloor that is great for groups. Earlier in the night, Club Pelicano feels like a chic cocktail and wine club with appetizers that are drawn from their restaurant Tiradito. As the evening progresses and the drinks begin flowing, the space slowly transforms into an intimate and classy dancefloor. The décor of this venue is extremely unique: it resembles an abandoned, upscale pool that pays tribute to the Molitor swimming pool in Paris and the abandoned public bath houses of Montreal!

Old Port

After you walk through a long, catacomb cobblestone tunnel, you’ll walk into an intimate and stylish club with an impressive sound and light system. Velvet prides itself for creating a close, sweaty vibe with a mixture of techno, house, electro, and pop music. The building that houses Velvet, the historic Auberge Saint-Gabriel, has been around since 1754. It is one of the oldest buildings in Montreal, and you’ll definitely feel the history as you descend into the catacomb-inspired club.
