Chez Dagobert, Quebec
The Grande-Allee could be described as Quebec City's nightclub strip, and one of the most popular nightclubs on Grande-Allee is Chez Dagobert. "Le Dag" is located in a massive brick house and it seems like it's been around forever. I remember growing up down east we were always excited at the thought of going out Chez Dagobert anytime we were in Quebec City!
Chez Dagobert has two separate dance floors - one is dedicated to house music and hip hop, with guest DJs from all around the world (it's called the urban room). The other one features live rock bands. I highly recommend going to the rock room on Thursday nights, when the Karma Kameleons are playing. Their show is a tribute to the best of 80s rock music, complete with the big hair and tight pants - it's always a big party!
Dress Code: The urban room is pretty trendy, the rock room not so much!
If you haven't been to Quebec before and you're into dancing then you should hit the Dagobert It's 3 Floors of pumping nightlife. When you enter the bar you are on the level of the live rock bands. Most of them play covers but there are original acts as well. In between sets you can pop upstairs to the main Dance floor. Here they play dance/techno stuff with video screens all over the place and a pretty cool light and laser show. The top floor is a terrace over the dance floor where you can relax and scope the crowd. The place is huge. It can accommodate 1500 people on the three floors. The crowd tends to be pretty young
Dress Code: No real dress code. Keep in mind that the locals dress up for this place so if you're looking to pick up then ya' gotta' look decent.
This is one of the biggest bar in Quebec City. It can accommodate 1500 people on multiple floors.
Located in an ancient mansion, the first section offers live band and drinks at decent price. The main room has multiple floors with dance music blasing out an impressive sound system.
More impressive even is the robotic lightning effect of the ceiling which moves in every direction.
Dress Code: Dress well...not as a tourist who walks all day under the sun...
The line up can be ling and the bouncer picky...
Degobar (probably spelt wrong, but sounds right)
When you walk in, it is like a lounge atmosphere, but then you can go upstairs to the really rockin' dance floor. All dance and current hits. Laser lights, shooter and drink bars.
Dress Code: Look nice, like no ripped jeans or grunge look.
Just a massive mansion-looking club. I went here for my birthday, so I have nothing but good drunken tales of the place.
Dress Code: I can't remember, but I'm pretty sure I was wearing sneakers and a hat.
