Location: Toronto, Canada
The successor to Toronto’s long-running after-hours, 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 the techno and house business. The 550-capacity club is packed to the gills each week and a quick look at its drool-worthy 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 soundsystem ensures partiers hear every single snare too.
