 Overview
 Description
The club itself has three rooms: a hiphop lounge, a bar area, and a main room. The hiphop lounge has a small dancefloor and many couches at the sidelines which are always packed with people. The washrooms are nearby, and there is a bank of sinks next to them for people to fill up their water bottles at. The bar upstairs is another room with a larger dancefloor

     History
    A philosophy, a vibe, and a culture, born from the dreams and ideas of young ambitious friends: their new vision of partying was one of avant-garde and they transformed Montreal’s nightlife profile.

    From then until now, the 514 team presented an invaluable combination of club promotion and special events. The friend’s dream became a reality and, in over 10 years of events, their ideas developed into a strong underground credibility and corporate skills.

    This Montreal-based production company knows how to stimulate the masses: the experience, the professionalism, the flair and the signature mean extraordinary events, guaranteed success and unequalled satisfaction. The most beautiful mixed crowds can be found in any 514 event, enjoying the best of electronic music, from deep house to progressive techno, and hip-hop to electronica. The 514 team’s reputation comes from an amazing organizing and logistics authority, the events’ repeated success, the top quality sound, the diversity in guest djs and, most important of all, the inestimable value of the 514 experience…

    Montreal, February 25th 2004

    The Sona star fades out...

    It is with great sadness that we announce the closing of Sona. After careful consideration and market analysis, the owners and directors, 514 Productions and Jet Management, have decided to put an end to the club's operation and this, as of now. The club is thus closed.

    Please take note that this decision has in no way any affect on the 514 Productions activities and events.

    We will all keep precious memories of Sona, a landmark that has swept thousands of clubgoers off their feet for almost 8 years. We would sincerely like to thank all our faithful clientele which has contributed to the Sona vibe and we wish all the best and much prosperity to all those who support and nourish Montreal's electronica scene.

    Thank you...
