History[edit]

Club Soda was established in the early 1980s by Guy Gosselin, André Gagnon and Martin Després. The first act at Club Soda was Boule Noire in October 1983, which was followed by Ding et Dong.

Club Soda was originally located on Park Avenue. Montreal concert promoter Rubin Fogel became a part owner in 1985.[1] The original Club Soda closed its doors in July 1999. It re-opened in its current location on Saint Laurent Boulevard on March 21, 2000, following extensive renovations. The building in which it is currently located was constructed in 1908 and was known as the Crystal Palace. During the 1940s it was a Cabaret. The current owners of the club are Després, Fogel and Fogel's longtime concert promotion partner Michel Sabourin.[1]
