Shambhala Music Festival (Salmo River Ranch, British Columbia) – July

Voted ‘North America’s Best Festival’ by the readers of DJ Mag in 2019, Shambhala sure lives up to its reputation as a fan-favorite. Yes, I’m talking four days of party-rocking with six separate themed stages teeming with EDM goodness! Watch out for homegrown Canadian superstars like Black Tiger Sex Machine and Ekali, while you take a break from going gaga over international acts like Dion Timmer and Channel Tres. The best indie music festival to hit the shore this side of the Pacific, Shambhala will make you sham-holla at the Canadian EDM scene.

Igloofest (Montreal, Quebec) – January

You know what they say, when you can’t get to France, French Canada it is! But jokes aside, prepare yourself for a musical fiesta that stretches over twelve unforgettable nights this winter, because Igloofest is about to knock your socks off. Even bundled up in five warm layers to beat the Quebec chill, the jaw-dropping performances by powerful acts like Regular Fantasy, Lauer and Anjunabeats are certain to give you chills.

Le Rouge

A young vibe and two floors of varying music will keep you dancing all night

Le Rouge Bar has been voted as one of Montreal’s best nightclubs for more than a decade. With two floors of great ambiance, Rouge serves up the city’s hottest DJs in a relaxed atmosphere on Friday and Saturday nights.

Great music, friendly staff, reasonable prices, and great food and beverages make this club a fun place to party during the weekends.

New City Gas

A huge 40,000 sq ft live msuic venue with 3 different rooms

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 the lighting of Montréal’s streets and buildings. Today, the heritage complex has been transformed into an event space encompassing over 40,000 square feet on two floors. 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 with top international talent and thematic experiential elements.

Massive dance floor party at Club Space
Hidden inside Hotel10, this club has something for everyone

Tucked away within Hotel10 right in the middle of downtown, the club opened its doors in 2011 and has been blending high fashion and sophistication into a unique nightlife experience ever since. The club provides a lavish alternative to the traditional club scene, providing a classy and modern space to entertain anyone from clients to close friends.

Small but crowded dane floor at WALL Miami
An absolutely massive outdoor venue that you can’t miss if the sun is shining

Located in Pointe-Calumet, an easy drive from Montreal, Beachclub is exactly what its name implies — a club on the beach. The outdoor beach site can host up to 10,000 guests at a time, making it the largest outdoor club in North America. The island was designed for an 18+ clientele, with tropical notes that offer a huge outdoor dance floor and several accommodation services, all surrounded by beaches dotted with cushions and picnic tables conducive to relaxation.

Featuring great artists every weekend the Beachclub prides itself on its international reputation within the electronic music industry. 


Bottle service waitresses at Rockwell Miami
A true after-hours venue that keeps the party going until the morning

Stereo is an after-hours institution that was meticulously designed to achieve the best in sound quality and acoustics to give you the best special events and dance parties in the city. Paul Antoni developed a concept for the nightclub which seamlessly blends massive blocks and flowing lines, raw edges and sophistication. Filled with palpable tension, harsh lights and dark shadows, the room performs its magic and the ritual begins amid a background revealing traces of post-industrial crude steel and damaged concrete.

Its brightly lit dance floor is flanked on either side by an elevated platform with couches and chairs, with enough space to fit a DJ booth that can be customized for events. With dancers, onlookers and the DJ in close proximity to one another, the club experience becomes a collective creation. Three strips of light at the end of the runway disclose the first architectural element: the softer lighting and the warmth of the walnut surrounding the main bar create a cozy atmosphere. On top of its acoustic quality, the fragrance and texture of the wood enhances the room’s considerable appeal. A second key feature: the small island bar nestled against a backdrop of walnut laths is topped by a magnificent bottle display rack, made of an eclectic mixture of aluminum and wood. The final stroke of genius: unisex toilets entirely lined with walnut, and wall-mounted sinks that are funkily chic. “Refreshing, striking” observed the jury about the winner of the Bar award. Boasting an impressive roster of DJs, both local and international, the club has cemented its place as one of the most interesting and exciting experiences of Montreal’s eccentric nightlife.

Le Cinq

A place to see and be seen, Le Cinq attracts some popular clientele

Giving new life to one of Montreal’s most iconic locations, Le Cinq Montreal brings the wow factor back to the infamous 1234 Mountain address. With an eclectic, Neo-Gothic-meets-Industrial-Chic aesthetic, The Club at Le Cinq is the latest incarnation of a space that has been at the heart of Montreal nightlife for over three decades. Le Cinq Montreal’s concept plays on guilty pleasure and invites us to sin in its stylized house of worship, with the club being located in what was formerly the private chapel of this unique heritage building. Le Cinq truly gets it right when it comes to design and layout, successfully creating different vibes within the same space.

With two fully functional terraces, a full-blown restaurant leading into their club space and lastly, a large events venue room – truly makes this one vastly interesting venue. The club also features two service bars and several VIP areas. For live shows, there is a PA system and a state of the art sound system with speakers by Dynacore. To finish off the magic at Le Cinq, the management strives to bring current French standards of upper scale service and gastronomy to Montreal with a skilled and vastly hospitable staff and ultra-fancy dinner and drink menus of extravagant high end delicacies and complex beautiful cocktails.

A restaurant during the day transitions to a club at night

Top 10 Bachelor Party Cities in US

I’ve never been a big fan of scrolling all the way down to the bottom either. But what makes a great bachelor city? Is it the people? The food? The options? The clubs?

#1. Las Vegas

If you don’t think Las Vegas is the best bachelor party location possible, you either have never been to Las Vegas or have been there with a bunch of losers who don’t know how to have fun. Las Vegas offers anything and everything you could want or need in a bachelor party.

There are plenty of nice hotels in Vegas, but you generally want to be in one on the strip. Just don’t completely cut your budget on hotels. It’s much harder thank you think to convince a girl to come back with you to a place like Planet Hollywood or Paris. Locations off the strip just make your life a pain in the ass. Traffic along the strip sucks and the less time you waste in the back of a limo, the better.

The pool parties in Vegas are second to none. Here’s a word of advice when dealing with the pool parties and later the clubs, always pay to cut the line or sign up for Guest List. It’s totally worth spending an extra $50 a man with a VIP host to not spend an hour or more on line. If you don’t know a guy, I’m sure your friend knows a guy, or your friend’s coworker knows a guy. There are plenty of those kinda “guys” in Vegas that can help you out in this situation, but why bother. Click the online Discotech app and avoid the stress and hassle.

Once night hits, you’ll need some good food. Prime Steakhouse is my favorite of all the Vegas steakhouses because it’s specific to Vegas. Stack in the Mirage is a step down from a steakhouse, but all the waitresses make the name of the restaurant proud. In ‘N Out is reachable by taxi if you just want to stuff your face. Then you’re off to the club, where you should be getting table service at Marquee or XS (the two best clubs in Vegas). It’s really hard to find regular bars to go out to in Vegas. The best you’re going to do is something the Chanderlier Bar at the Cosmpolitan, Ghostbar at the Palms, or Foundation Room at Mandalay Bay.

Or just get drunk while you gamble because that doesn’t hurt either. We know Vegas has you covered when it comes to table gaming. It’s also the only place you’ll find a sportsbook in the United States, so you can throw down on a horse race, a championship fight, or an NFL game without having to worry about too much. Grab your clubs and fit in a morning round on your first day out there or else you won’t have the energy to do so by the end of the weekend. There’s also a good chance you end up at the Spearmint Rhino to check out some of the hottest strippers in the world.

#2. Miami

First, lets talk about location. You are going to want to stay on South Beach. Brickell is a nice area if you’re living full-time in Miami, but South Beach is where you need to be for a wild bachelor party weekend. Brickell and other areas of Miami are farther away from South Beach and you don’t want to waste your time and money going back and forth. Also, don’t overpay on the hotel. You won’t be in your room much anyway, so why spend big bucks on an elite hotel? Hotel location is important, but classiness not so much.

Now for food. When it comes to food, you want to be stuffing your hungover face with anything breakfast/lunch on the menu at Big Pink. There are plenty of renowned New York restaurants that have opened up new locations in Miami like the Dutch, Scarpetta, and BLT Steak, but if you’re not grabbing a nice steak and a big Kobe meatball at Prime 112, you’re doing yourself a disservice. You can’t forget about local favorite Joe’s Stone Crab either. If you’re drunk and looking for late night munchies, now is the time to head over to the mainland and hit up La Moon for an arepa burger.

The nightlife scene is on par with anything you’ll get in the world. A night with bottle service at LIV should be on top of your list if you like clubbing. Club Space is the place to roll to at 5 a.m if you don’t want to stop raging. Places like the Clevelander, the Delano, and Nikki Beach (specifically day party) offer plenty of fun as well.

Lastly, the weather is great but avoid Hurricane Season as it rains a lot in Miami during that time. There are also plenty of places to golf, women galore and romance at the clubs. Those are all a given when hearing the word Miami obviously. The only thing you’re missing is gambling, but you won’t care when your eyes are fixed on your computer screen on Monday morning and you’re just thinking about how awesome your weekend was. Check out the Discotech app to see upcoming events in Miami.

#3. Montreal

Montreal is not technically in the US but it’s easy enough to head north of the border if you want to hit Canada’s party town. Montreal’s basically got you covered for anything bachelor party related. Perhaps the most notable thing in Montreal is the strip clubs. You can do the regular man’s thing on Saint Catherine Street by hopping around to Club Supersexe, Chateau du Sex, or Club Super Contact. If looking for something a little higher end, head to Kamasutra for a one of a kind show. They also take things a little further if you head down towards Old Montreal on Saint Catherines and ask the right people. If gambling is another activity you wish to indugle, you can head to the Montreal Casino, which isn’t too far away. It’s just smaller than you’d want in terms of available table gaming.

Trust me, you are really going to want to be on Boulevard Saint Laurent when searching for a place to drink. A place like Tokyo satisfies all your needs with good looking girls, multiple themed rooms, and a roof area. If bottle service is more your thing, Montreal has a scene where restaurants turn into a Club/Lounge atmosphere once it starts getting late. Make sure to download or click the Discotech App to check out what’s popping in Montreal. It’s a little different than what you’re used to in America because people tend to rage out by their tables and there’s usually not one main dance floor, but that doesn’t mean you can’t meet a nice local girl to party with for the night.

#4. New Orleans

Ah, New Orleans. Home to the infamous Mardi Gras. But fourth place? Yes, fourth place. The obvious reason is Bourbon Street, which, beleive it or not, is a lot more fun on something like a big sporting event weekend than it is during Mardi Gras. While you will miss out on seeing your share of naked ladies if you pass on Mardi Gras, Bourbon Street becomes much easier to manage.

There are still plenty of people during a big sporting event weekend to keep the fun up. Plus Bourbon Street has its share of strip clubs to get your fix there as well.

The food is also top tier. You can get anything pig-related at Cochon and it will be fantastic. You will not be disappointed, whether it’s pork ribs, smoked ham, fried boudin balls, or cochon itself. Johnny’s Po-Boys will get you your po-box fix.

Need some gambling? Harrah’s Casino is conveniently located near the water and open 24 hours a day, which may or may not be a good thing. Head to the Old New Orleans Rum distillery to make a nice day trip if you can wake up in time. New Orleans is one of the most fun places to be. Make sure to click Discotech to check out all the upcoming events in New Orleans!

#5. Charleston

Ah, number five. There are a ton of things to do in Charleston. For one, there are a lot of great restaurants in Charleston because of the large migration to the area from New Orleans’ best chefs after Hurricane Katrina. Places like Husk and The Ordinary are well recognized as some of the best restaurants in the country with Oak Steakhouse recently making a best of U.S. steakhouse list as well.

Golf and beaches are also two of Charleston’s finest qualities. You are truly lucky if you can somehow get a round of golf on the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island. If you can’t, you’ll still be able to find another great looking course to swing your clubs. The beaches get plenty of life, since the weather is generally good for most of the year.

There are plenty of fun bars on Bay Street and Market Street near the water or you can hit up King Street for bars closer to the University of Charleston’s campus. Neither area will disappoint.  The fun doesn’t stop when the bars close either. Thee Southern Belle strip club has a tremendous reputation and is a great place to go after hours in Charleston because you can BYOB. Regular girls even go there to hang out.

#6. Austin

One of everyone’s favorite Southern cities, Austin has a lot to offer for a bachelor party. We’ll start with the obvious – the women. There are few cities in America that can compete with Austin in terms of great looking women. Right behind the beautiful women is the barbecue, which is arguably as good as you’ll get anywhere in the country. Franklin Barbecue was recently voted the best barbecue in the country, so it’s a must-see spot on your trip.

With food and women out of the way, let’s focus on drinking. The bars on 6th street will have you satisfied or you can head over to the Warehouse District and Fourth Street if you’re looking to not hit the same spots all weekend. Need a good hangover omelet in the morning? Magnolia Café has got you covered. If music is your thing, Texas has two major music festivals that can give you your fill and are a fun thing to center a weekend around. Throw together with the generally warm weather, the potential for a University of Texas sporting event, plenty of local golf courses and you have the formula for success. Click here to see upcoming events in Austin!

#7. Nashville

There’s a good reason Nashville has the nickname of NashVegas. It’s a loved destination for travelers in the South and Midwest because it’s easy to get to and has lots to offer. The good thing about a place like this is the people you meet are for the morst part carefree and the visiting girls are very fun. I’d also recommened you get some good barbecue at Jack’s, a one of a kind meat and three or the Nashville specialty of hot chicken.

There are two main areas to get to drinking. There’s the well-known strip of bars on Broadway and a couple streets close by in the downtown area. You can also head out to the Midtown area near Vanderbilt and find plenty of places there.

I highly suggest checking out the Nashville Pedal Tavern, which is a unique and fun way to do a bar crawl and meet random chicks to hang out with. If your into shooting guns, you can do that too. The good thing about Nashville is that it’s weather-resistant, so it doesn’t really matter what time of year you check it out. The one downside is that basically every bar is country music heavy. If you’re not a fan, you might just have to bit your tongue and bear down the whole weekend. Click upcoming events in Nashville to see what’s going down!

#8 Phoenix / Scottsdale

When looking to throw it back to your youthful college days in bachelor party fashion, heading to Arizona is the best place for this type of experience . While there are a lot of scientific establishments and other boring things awaiting the average tourist in the state of Arizona, we’d not suggest those to you. Instead, you should be taking a road trip to Phoenix / Scottsdale for some brotherly bonding at adult clubs and open-till-late entertainment centers there.

Phoenix is ideal for those who do not mind getting tan and are craving a boyish road trip that would take them to wild nightclubs and unforgettable street parties. Some cool things to do while visiting include partying, golf, and river tubing. The food scene is also fantastic, as celebrated barbecue served by local restaurants and bars keep tourists coming from all over America. Click Upcoming Events in Phoenix / Scottsdale to see see what’s happening this weekend!

#9 Denver

For those who don’t know, a Colorado bachelor party is a different kind of bachelor party entirely. No clubs, no strippers, and possibly not even any women. So what’s the appeal? Depending on your group dynamics, a rugged three-day weekend of rafting, skiing/ snowboarding, hiking, beer drinking, weed smoking, outdoor adventuring and manly-bonding can actually be more memorable than the typical club-scene.

However, if you want to squeeze in the nightlife scene, Denver is home to some excellent steak restaurants and bars. However, the natural beauty and seemingly endless things to do in the gorgeous outdoor environment is really the highlight of this location. Although not known for a wild nightlife scene, Denver does host epic events and concerts. Hit the slopes or a hiking trail in the morning and then finish the day partying at one of the many bars / venues featuring your favorite musician, is not a bad way to spend a day. Click Upcoming Events in Denver to see upcoming events and concerts!

#10 New York

Last but not least, New York City. NYC certainly does have its positives. For starters there’s every type of bar imaginable and you can drink until 4 a.m. We recommend Brother Jimmys, then rink some good brews at the Standard Beer Garden, or hit a club like SL or 1Oak. The restaurants offer any cuisine a bachelor party can want whether it be pizza , burgers, barbecue, or steak.

For all the positives, this fine city has its downfalls for bachelor parties. It’s expensive, specifically with hotel rooms. You can’t do anything in New York between September and December because hotel prices will be through the roof. It also isn’t the best for strip clubs (yes, we know those matter too).

New City Gas

Kicking this list off, I believe its only fair to start here, with New City Gas. Located directly in the heart of Griffintown, this heritage building has become one of the hottest spots in Montreal. Originally built in 1859 the New City Gas complex would transform coal into gas for lighting Montréal’s streets and buildings. This venue literally would keep the streets of Montreal lit. Today, the heritage complex has been transformed into a multifunctional event space encompassing over 40,000 square feet on two floors. Top DJs such as Tiesto, David Guetta, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike as well as other big artists continue to sell out shows at this venue. Make sure to browse upcoming events at New City Gas and get on the discounted guest list!

When New Gas City 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. Bottle service as well as ticketing options are available for those seeking entry. House DJ Tiesto describes that the “place looks spectacular” and that the club is “big but still intimate.”

New City Gas is the #1 venue in Canada according to DJ Mag’s annual poll for the last two years

stereo montreal

Stereo was established in 1998 and is situated in the heart of Montreal. It’s sole purpose is pure dance floor ecstasy. Aural pleasure is what they are about. The music. Not the commercial radio stuff but the real underground, forward thinking genres. Their goal has always been to throw the best parties through carefully chosen artists, the best in visual presentations and lighting, in a room that creates such a thick energy you can almost cut through it with a knife.

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. This is Stereo.

For this reason, the club has maintained a staunch loyal following, both throughout its city and beyond. Nearly 20 years running, Stereo has seen the scene shift and grow, and has adapted in its own ways – overcoming intense fires in 2008 and 2009 which brought the partying to a temporary halt.

Pro Tips: Stereo is an after-hours venue. The venue also features a lot of up and coming talents, including international DJs.



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 and bottle service at Newspeak are definitely a major draw, but Montrealers can always be found lingering at the bar and sharing stories even when the stage is empty.

Relatively new to Montreal’s nightlife scene, Newspeak just opened in early 2015, but it has already created quite the buzz. Located in the heart of Quartier des Spectacles, the club looks like a speakeasy straight out of the prohibition era, but with a futuristic twist that creates a very interesting vibe. Its avant garde aesthetic is complimented by the various indie, electronic, and other alternative music artists who have played countless shows at the venue since it opened its doors.

Contrasting massive, stadium style setups that can be awesome, but completely lack an intimate feel, Newspeak was made to cater to the fan that really wants to get up close and personal with their favorite artists. The company behind the venue, SJU, is known for curating incredibly unique live events with unconventional international artists and the trend has definitely continued at Newspeak. Part of their mission to make non-mainstream music accessible to the public includes throwing all of their shows at a very reasonable price, usually ranging from $10 to $15. You are going to want to check out upcoming events at Newspeak before deciding where your night will take you, as this place is a must-stop for underground EDM lovers.


Opening its doors in 2009, Muzique Nightclub is among some of the oldest running clubs in Montreal and has positioned itself as a flagship for all things fabulous in Montreal’s party scene.
