Living in Montreal is generally a good time. There's always some great party to hit up regardless what season it is, but let's face it, our harsh winters do a pretty good job of limiting us to the great indoors most of the year. So when summer does finally roll around, the goal is to make the most of it, and what better way than soaking up the sun on a relaxing beach, enjoying some world-class music, while sipping on a refreshing drink in hand, amirite?
But Montreal doesn't have any beaches...You got me there (what's up with that btw). We do have Pointe-Calumet, though, and more specifically, we have Beachclub. With sunny beaches and terrasses to lounge around on, lively bars keeping us properly lubricated, and the biggest DJ's providing the perfect soundtrack to your summer, Beachclub is a little slice of tropical paradise right here in Quebec, and this year it's going to be even bigger and better than ever!
Beachclub got itself a big, fat renovation in the off-season and with it comes a whole bunch of new features to make your experience a whole lot better. First off, there's a new Y-shaped pool to offer a bigger capacity than before, surrounded by beach beds and loungers to relax on. If you want some private party action, rent a cabana and bottle service for you and your friends.
A brand-new dance floor now features a retractable roof so a little rain can't kill the vibe, there's a new and improved menu with healthy and gourmet items to chose from, and centrally-located bars and services will make you feel like you're in an all-inclusive down south in no time.
When you're done swimming, sunbathing, and wakeboarding (new cables and jumps added this year!), hit up the main stage or the House/Techno/Deep House stage for some next-level beats and literally the hottest party all summer long. If you really want to make the most of your experience, Beachclub is offering snazzy new VIP cabanas, all located around the stage. Choose from three 10-person sections, two 15-person sections, or one 30-person VIP section where you and your crew will be treated like royalty.
Summer is finally here Montreal and Beachclub is back!

Founder Corinne Asseraf "imagined the Gallery 203 as a place of discovery, of meeting and exchange between artists and art enthusiasts" and you can feel exactly that the second you walk through the doors.
The mastermind behind all of this, Asseraf, has such a warming, kind presence, which is reason enough to take a visit to Galerie 203 whenever you're strolling through Old Montreal. She let MTL Blog know that anyone and everyone is welcome in her gallery.
