The street is somewhat dirty and noisy. There is a lot of construction going on. But putting that aside, there are lots of people on weekends and the street ka crowded with bars. So this is a must go if you're looking for a laid back, cheap but fun bar.

Crescent Street has everything you can ask for. Food, drinks, people, party time. If you want to enjoy some of the best microbrews, they have them. A do not miss area when in Montreal.

We were told that Crescent Street is where to go during Formula One week in Montreal. We went on the first day and it sucks for us that it rained the day we went, but it just felt like the hype for Crescent Street was very short lived. It was 2 blocks on Crescent Street that were blocked off to... More

I've been on crescent during the f1 weekend and I was amazed by the energy of the people. Must go. Bars and restaurants with patios and a stage to everybody join the party.

Not just for young adults Crescent street is for everyone. Places to eat, drink, sit outside or just people watch. I was lucky enough that the street was closed to traffic and there were live bands. All I can say is FUN!

These days tourists do tons of research before they go to a restaurant. But every once in a while we want to do it the old fashioned way. Just walk up to a restaurant, look at the menu and ambiance, and make a decision. Crescent street is the perfect place to do that. We had our first meal in Montreal... More

A great place to have fun! The street is LOADED with bar after bar - a constant party. There are a few dive bars but for the most part it is just a super good time.

I read a review that called Crescent St the Times Square of Montreal. It is not even close! Nice restaurants and bars, but no where close to Times Square! It is a great place to watch sports events as most of the bars have plenty of T.Vs. in the future I'd rather spend my time on Catherine st.

We were there on F1 weekend. The whole street was one giant outdoor party. They had all sorts of booth and entertainment set up. In from of Sir Winston Churchill Pub, there was a giant outdoor stage, where there was live music. Behind all the fanfare, there were some very pretty older buildings. Even without a street festival, this would... More
