We stayed in a condo right here within a block for 10 days, so walked through here many times. Such a clean city. I didn't think I'd want to stay in a city for so much of our vacation, but Montreal is wonderful in so many ways. This location is like the center of things. Can go down in to... More

We just saw "The Book of Mormon" and, although the production was great, the acoustics of the theater itself let a bit to be desired. It was often difficult to hear the dialogue/lyrics above the music. In speaking with a couple who frequents productions at other venues in the Place des Arts, this is common at this particular theater. Overall,... More

This was right across the street from our hotel with a wonderful selection of small eateries and an interesting museum. There was also a colorful art installation during our stay.

This venue is a great place to take in a show of any kind. I have seen both ballet performances and rock concerts in the same room and it always fits the bill. There is always a show going on here whether it be the Montreal Ballet company or a visiting company. Every year around the holidays people flock to... More

Several concert halls make this a great focal point for the arts in Montreal. The opera, ballet, symphony, theatre and other concerts play here daily. Plan ahead by checking out their website and purchasing tickets online.

The place to go if there is a a good live show, opera or ballet -- or an exhibit of interest at the Museum of Modern Art. Otherwise, pretty much an interesting shopping center with one of the Archambault music store locations (very appropriate).
