New City Gas

New City Gas

Located directly in the heart of Griffintown, this heritage building has become one of today’s hottest spots in town. Originally built in 1859 the New City Gas complex used to transform coal into gas for lighting Montréal’s streets and buildings. Today, the heritage complex has been transformed into a multifunctional event space encompassing over 40,000 square feet on two floors. Flexible enough to adapt to client needs, the building can accommodate up to three different rooms, each possessing the combination of historic character and contemporary design. When re-opened in 2012 as an event space, its existing shell was maintained and a live venue was built out with a state of the art sound and light experience, while the original vintage and historical elements were restored. New City Gas’ impressive roofs and stone masonry remain a strong and evocative presence in the urban landscape. What was once an energy source for the city’s lights is now a glowing presence in the Montreal nightlife scene; New City Gas caters to over 3,000 people each and every week.

Newspeak

Newspeak

Newspeak borrowed its name from George Orwell’s famed dystopian novel 1984, but the outlook when you step into this nightlife spot is anything but dismal. With a long, well lit bar, plenty of space around for standing, and a more than sufficient dance floor, it’s a comfortable hang out spot that always has room for everyone. The amazing shows at Newspeak are definitely a major draw, but Montrealers can always be found lingering at the bar, sharing stories, and enjoying themselves even when the stage is empty.

Stereo

Stereo

This longstanding Montreal, Canada afterhours outpost does its country proud with an infamous sound system that pays homage to its name... “Music is the answer!” announces the website for Stereo nightclub. Not only do we agree, but it appears DJ Mag readers agree that this Montreal gem is the answer for music – house and techno, to be precise – voting it the north’s Best Venue. Founded as an afterhours club in 1998 by DJ-producer Angel Moraes, and now owned by Tommy Piscardeli, the venue has long been revered for that which it is built on and named for: its sound. Any raver who has had the good fortune to have had a spin on the Stereo dancefloor can attest to an experience of aural immersion that they’d be hard-pressed to find elsewhere.

Circus After Hours

Circus After Hours

Residing in a city more renowned for its arty noise raves than its electronic dance nightlife, Circus Afterhours bats for the more nocturnal of Montreal's clubbing population. Starting around 2am, it's a common feature for night owls looking for beats but unwilling to settle for the R&B fodder offered elsewhere in the city. Those patient enough wait to do so because they know the best is yet to come, packing themselves into this burrow of debauchery to throw shapes to the likes of Digweed, W&W and Orjan Nilsen until midday. Spread over two rooms and fitted with a Funktion One soundsystem loud enough to register on the Richter scale, Circus Afterhours proffers one of the greatest club shows on earth.
