Taverne Gaspar

89 Commune Street East , Montreal

Every night, drinks flow generously as our kitchen serves up fresh, pub-style cooking. The menu: soulful staples, original cocktails and friendly service in a classic tavern setting.

The space, originally a 19th-century warehouse, preserves much of its old-school furnishings but with a few novel kicks. And come summer, we welcome the warm weather with our big terrace on rue de la Commune.

Stereo Nightclub

858  St Catherine St E Avenue , Montreal

Stereo Nightclub was established in 1998 and is located in heart of downtown Montreal. It operated as a bar, after hours and live music venue for up to 1000 people.

Stereo Nightclub is renowned for its unique and internationally famous sound system. It was originally upgraded and perfected by former Twilo sound tech Craig "shorty" Bernabeu. It is Canada's undisputed premier club brand, and one of the few remaining "hot spots" in North America.

The International media has been universal in acclaiming Montreal's Stereo as one of the best clubs in the world. In an interview with BBC's Radio One in 2000, Stereo monthly resident, and Grammy-Winner, David Morales proclaimed Stereo to be the closest modern equivalent to Larry Levan's legendary Paradise Garage (the Studio 54 of under ground night clubbing). Many other major international DJs such as Danny TEnaglia, Satoshi TOmile, Sander Kleinenburg, John Digweed, Roger SAnchez and Eric Morillo have been similarly impressed and named it the new Twilo. Stereo has become a crucial destination for night-clubbers and A-level talent throughout the globe.

Stereo Nightclub features an all-analogue system, including a vintage UREI mixer that recreates the classic vibe of the "Better Days" in a way digital never will. Shortly is also continually building new components and modifying the exsisting system. Stereo is always 'in progress'. The room itself is purpose-built for dancing: the inside walls are 3 feet away from the outer ones, custom-designed as a "box in a box" for studio-level acoustic perfection. The dance floor actually floats on shock absorbers to make sore legs from an all-night session less of a problem!

Stereo Nightclub, co-owned by House Music legend David Morales and party aficlonado Scott Lancaster, is quite simply, a shrine to electronic dance music that attracts DJs from around the world to play for the discerning Montreal crowd

Club Soda

1225  St-Laurent , Montreal

For 30 years...

 

1980

Club Soda, a true Montreal institution, witnessed over the last 30 years the evolution of Quebec, Canadian and international show business. In the early 1980’s, the late Guy Gosselin, along with filmmakers André Gagnon and Martin Després, had an idea of transforming a reception hall located on Parc Avenue into a new kind of cabaret. George Thurston, a.k.a. Boule Noire, was entrusted with the mission of inaugurating the hall during one week in October 1983. In February 1984, Club Soda forever changed the history of Quebec’s show business with the premiere of Lundi des Ha Ha animated by Ding et Dong.


1985

Producers Michel Sabourin and Rubin Fogel, along with Martin Després, became owners of the cabaret. Club Soda quickly turned into a genuine melting pot of the modern entertainment industry. From Ding et Dong to Daniel Lemire, from Rock et Belles Oreilles to Michel Courtemanche, from Marjo to Richard Séguin, from Daniel Bélanger to France d’Amour, from Térez Montcalm to Lhasa de Sela, from Robert Charlebois to Michel Pagliaro, many of today’s artists made their successful debut at the Club Soda.


2000

The venerable institution of Parc Avenue closed its doors for good on July 30, 1999. A few months later, Club Soda was revived and given a second life in a new location custom-designed by the renowned architect Luc Laporte. Inaugurated on March 21, 2000 by the Minister of Municipal Affairs, Louise Harel, Club Soda was converted at the cost of $ 3.5 million. The Government of Quebec and the City of Montreal contributed $ 1.6 million of that amount; the remainder was financed by Club Soda and its partner, the Fonds d'investissement de la culture et des communications (FICC).
