Griffintown is Montreal's newly evolving neighborhood and has got plenty of surprises in store. Whether you choose to walk on major streets like Wellington, Notre Dame or around the Lachine area of the hood, you'll find something or the other to do. It's a peaceful yet energetic and has more to offer as the days go by. It's a place... More

I stayed in an air bnb in Griffintown with a couple friends for a long weekend and the area was really cool. If I had to relate it to anywhere else, it's the Brooklyn of Montréal. Lots of converted industrial buildings that now house cool loft style apartments, cafes, restaurants and bars all full with a young adult crowd. We... More

Great casual bistro ambiance, with a live jazz singer. Nice industrial loft decor with high ceilings and genuine brick walls. We had a great and friendly service. Prices are reasonable. They offer awesome unusual cocktails. Food we had was really fresh and very good. My magret (duck breast) salad was simply delicious! We will come back again for sure

OK, so we rode the bus to near where the Trip Advisor City Guide "Point Me There" feature said Griffintown, and in fairness we found--on one side of a street thoroughly ripped up with construction work--a couple of small restaurants and an antique shop. We walked a little further, still looking for the charm the reviews said we should find,... More

Griffintown is also a very old neighbourhood which has become a very "in" place to live. It has been renovated and is still undergoing changes. I use to live in that area, filled with Antique Dealers, restaurants with terraces, coffee shops and very nice people. Enjoy this neighbourhood very much and although I don't live in the area anymore, I... More

Staying in Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)
Once the core of industrialised Montreal, the factories and historic buildings of Le Sud-Ouest have been renovated into homes, museums, and small businesses. The rejuvenated landscape has put its Saint-Henri district in vogue, with cutting-edge galleries and an ever-expanding network of restaurants. Foodies can especially delight in the mom-and-pop shops in Little Burgundy, or at the Atwater Market, where outdoor stalls sell fresh fruit, vegetables, and meat, street vendors have menus of hot fish and wine, and the indoor market offers chocolate, breads, and coffee beans. Dominated by the gentle waters of the Lachine Canal, Le Sud-Ouest is still very much an outdoor town, with a number of pedestrian-only bridges traversing the waters, bike paths along the canal with views of the Leisure Boats, and massive green spaces like Angrignon Park to stop for a picnic, or to play a sport.
