Our first trip to Montreal and we spent a bit of time on Crescent Street after being referred there by friends and our hotel concierge. It was a short walk from our hotel and was easy to find. There were tons of bars, restaurants and other shops all along the street - during our 5 day stay in Montreal we... More

This is a must stop when in town for a sporting event. The kibitzing between local fans and the "visiters" is just great in the several pubs that dot this street.

This is where we spend most of our Saturday night as there are so many different options for bars and restaurants. Everyone spoke English as this made things a little easier on us while ordering food or drinks. There is also a very special flair while you walk down the street as there seems to be a great atmosphere in... More

This was my favorite street in montreal. Well.. other than old montreal obviously. Lots of restaurants, bars, and other things to do . You will always find a place to eat and have a good time. Go here if you are in town.

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!
