If looking for something to do, it is probably on this street. Many students, tourists and locals patronizing the shops and pubs.

The entire area is young and vibrant. Lots to do and see. Really cool bars with friendly locals. Lots of quick bites around this area. A must visit in Montreal.

Great spot for an afternoon lunch at a cafe and a little people watching. Has a college town atmosphere. I can see where this might be the spot to be for an evening of fun. We enjoyed our afternoon visit to this interesting part of Montreal. Not a must see if you are only in the area for a few... More

Walking back to our hotel we came across amazing DJs and hundreds of people tangoing in the park! It was a beautiful Friday night!

This quartier is packed with restaurants and cafes, as well as visitors. However, it is a far cry from the one of Paris although it shares the same name.

It has everything you need for great night out: restaurants, bars, cafés, a cinema and St-Denis Theatre to catch a show. In the summer it's the best.

I walked on Saint-Denis Street in this area several times during my stay in Montreal for three days. There were lots of restaurants and bars on both sides of the street. Also, around St-Louis Square, there are several BYO restaurants and you can bring your own drinks in the restaurants. You can buy the drinks in liquor shops near the... 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.
