Upscale shops and restaurants. Many places close by 5:00, so go early if you want to do any shopping.

Walking towards Mont Royal we chose to walk Rue St Denis all the way up north and we really loved it. We started at the Quartier Latin which is a nice student area with all kind of bars, restaurants, young people and things going on. Further up north you cross a nice park which is a good spot to chill... More

The houses on both sides of this street is very charming. I couldn't stop taking pictures. The stairways are outside of the houses make them so unique and each one has a different style and ambiance. It is very safe and clean There are cafes and restaurants and butiques for every style and budget. I wish we had m;ore time... More

This was such a great street to spend hours and hours walking on, this past weekend. So many funky shops to stroll into and buy fun things for all kinds of budgets, many great restaurants, patios. The street is so great b/c, unlike old montreal, it's not "touristy" but filled with many locals. We liked it so much we spent... More

This is a fun busy street to walk along. Lots of interesting shops and great restaurants. Seems to be buzzing with activity day and night. Well worth a stroll on your way to/from Old Montreal.

While Old Montreal feels like a theme park designed to be a tourist magnet, this street has a more authentic feel. The street pretty much never sleeps, at least when I saw it in August. It has a lot of bars and cafes and it's a great place to have a nice morning breakfast or a late night drink.

We kept reading about the great shopping on this street so we went there. There were lots of restaurants and it was a great place for lunch. There was a cool bike jumping event (Mud Rocker) happening in the street. What there wasn't, however, was great shopping. There were a few shops to be clear but I wouldn't designate Rue... More
