Club Stereo Set To Reopen
The Stereo team has worked diligently around the clock for the past eight months, on the new face of Stereo, after a fire in July 2008. Keeping true to the essence of "a club for the people" maintaining its original history and architectural shape, as well as upgrading and adding finesse to its sound-system and interior decor. Upgrades include a new live staged format for live bands of all genres with seating, creating a modern yet intimate feel. Stereo will also be eco friendly being a "full green club" using re-purified water and recycling methods; where party people can make their mark on the dancefloor, not on the environment.
With this in mind, you can expect to see a revitalized nightlife for Montreal, kick starting this Labor Day weekend with the re-birth of Stereo; where once again DJ royalty may play to a crowd with no boundaries; regardless of color, age, or sexuality – it's the ultimate DJ's playground. Looking back on this history of Stereo, international DJ and Grammy Award Winner, David Morales who previously owned Stereo for six years, was renowned for his 16 hour sets at Stereo "La Vie en Stereo".
On Thursday 3rd September, one of the original pioneers of Stereo, Angel Moraes will grace the decks for the opening night, to pay tribute to the legendary nightclub that he built 11 years ago.
