Visited this building late Sunday afternoon. Skating rink is beautiful. Some people were seated near the rink working on laptops. Check for public skating times and costs on their website.

It's the Caricature of Modern Day Babylon..I visited the Building on the Day of its Inauguration..It was built by Herve Pomerleau, an enterprising General Contractor from the Beauce..who hired mostly young Engineers with 5-7 years experience , willing to work 60+ hours plus. Most of the SubContractors on that job went belly up. Still, it stands today as a testament... More

If it is -39C and you happen to be in Montreal with two kids, this is great place to spend an hour or two. Yes it comes with the price of $20 for family of four, but it also helps a family survive a cold day. The ice rink is well maintained and it is safe enough to let the... More

I always wanted to go skating at the atrium because a lot of people spoke of it. Well I could finally say I skated there but for sure I will never return ever again. The negative points: You have to pay to go in $20 for family of 4. You have to leave your jackets and belongings at the locker... More

After meetings I had a bit of time before dinner nearby. What a nice way to pass a hour than to have some ice skating. The rink is very well managed, great equipment, good food nearby and beautiful holiday decorations.

1000 de La Gauchetiere is an interesting office bldg, that is also a Metro station, has a good food court, and has an ice rink just off the lobby. I stopped by the food court for a quick lunch, which was very nice, but I was also able watch the kids ice skating. It was very nice!

I took my kids to Montreal for a family trip as we live in Ontario. This was one of the activities we did and loved it. It was my kids (age 4 & 7) first time skating. I was very happy with the staff. Very friendly, helpful and informative. The staff didn't just ask skate and helmet sizes, they actually... More

Not much here to see, some water cascades and food court. If you re hungry there are some very good choices for you from Thai express, sushi, Chinese, to sandwiches etc.. . There is a fabulous skating ring almost always open with great staff there. On weekends can be super busy, but on week days it is just perfect to... More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
