I've travelled a lot in the past 10 years. Especially in Europe. What I've noticed in Paris, Berlin, Munich, Barcelona, Zurich, etc is that people drink in the club passed 3…At one point they get tired and simply leave, usually around 5-6 am…most people do not take drugs. Some cities even allow all night drinking. The hole thing feels smooth and natural. The afterhours beat is deep and lots of clubs even let the day light in, it isn't as dark as our afterhours. The experience is really fun and different.
Now in Montreal on the other hand…. Since bars close at 3, if you want to go to afterhours, you need to commit to going out to another club. Big cover, no alcohol. It really is a different experience than clubbing. This is why people expect so much from DJs and why they do drugs to stay awake. Since people make the effort to transfer to another club at 4am, they usually will not leave before 8am or later.
On one hand it makes our scene truly unique but on the other hand it prevents it from growing and attracting more people.
Personally, I'm 100% for allowing any clubs to be open past 3 just like in Toronto and NYC. The current laws are retarded and outdated. Survival of the fittest will apply, clubs will die or survive. Scene will change and adapt to this new reality, I'm not worried though, MTL will always be unique and I'm positive that Stereo and Circus would actually benefit from this if of course they managed to get a liquor license.
Circus is forgotten on here but they've done well recently with some good bookings like Zabiela, Marco Bailey, D Formation etc. would be good to see booze served at both Circus and Stereo with more lower covers like Master Kush mentioned as they already hava a leg up on clubs in many areas.

Once I took a piss in front of everybody at Stereo. Put the garbage under the mixer, and did it right there while people were dancing and screaming. people thought I was playing with the mixer but I was playing with my zizi.
