Canada’s Best Clubs

With Miller Genuine Draft

With a wealth of DJs and a diverse group of incredible music venues, Canada has an established and respected dance music scene that makes it a venerable challenger to the rest of North America.

In this year's Top 100 Clubs poll – powered by Miller Genuine Draft – two Canadian clubs made the final ranking, with another two just outside the final 100.

These are Canada's highest ranked clubs of 2018...


Montreal natives know how to party – and how to appreciate the fleeting months of warmth they experience every calendar year – by taking advantage of their lakefront beaches.

That’s where Beachclub comes in. The sprawling 5,000 capacity outdoor venue, situated on the sandy shores of Pointe-Calumet, is open from May to September.

The club has a distinctly Balearic vibe with cabanas and swimwear-clad attendees. Fittingly, Beachclub’s Ibiza festival is a popular attraction.

The club’s 2018 season is jam-packed with names that are sure to satisfy even the most discerning Quebecois. Set to hit the sand this summer: Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Hardwell, Armin van Buuren, French Montana, Steve Aoki, Adam Beyer, Joseph Capriati and more.

Along with a slew of talented local resident DJs, Beachclub has also locked down two dates with Dutch big room master Tiësto.


The successor to Toronto’s long-running after-hours club, Footwork, CODA took up residence on the corner of Bathurst & Bloor Street in 2014, converting an old rock venue called The Wreckroom into one of the city’s most popular underground spots.

In just a few short years, the club has become a staple with a loyal following, featuring residents Nathan Barato, Carlo Lio and Jonathan Rosa alongside the biggest names in house and techno.

The 550-capacity club is packed to the gills each week and a quick look at their line-ups explains why — in the past year, Coda has hosted everyone from Pan-Pot and Oliver Huntemann to Dennis Ferrer and Maya Jane Coles. Their 55,000 watt sound system ensures partiers hear every single snare too.
