Spring Break

State-side ravers often overlook Canada, but a number of talented DJs and producers come out of Montreal. Supported by a diverse and supportive electronic music scene, here are the six best clubs in the city.



Velvet Speakeasy

Located on Rue Saint-Gabriel of Old Montreal, Velvet Speakeasy is an underground club that more strongly resembles the catacombs of Paris, giving it the perfect atmosphere for techno and underground dance.



Parc Jean-Drapeau

This place is actually a park comprising two islands across 268 hectares. It hosts a variety of events for the city, including MUTEK and Piknic Electronik.

Despite converting a 40,000-square-foot power plant into a club, the owners of New City Gas eschew the gritty sounds of house and techno typical for a place like this and instead play host to the biggest names of dance music, earning them a spot on DJ Mag’s Top 100 Clubs of 2016.

Tokyo Bar

Tokyo Bar strikes the right balance between amenities and music with its summer patio, tasty drink menu and dance-centric crowd.




A favorite of Montreal, Stereo regularly plays host to international DJs and performers, playing over an old school, bass-heavy sound system. The place is also an after-hours club, so it’s the perfect last stop on a night out.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
