Crescent is the Anglo bar/club/pub hub of the city. It's an event to go on Crescent street in the summer on a Friday night. Ferrari's, Lamborghini's, you name it, it's there. A lot of people (very good looking) and money. Some of the bars are wonderful and a couple of restaurants are delicious and affordable. I met Kevin, my now... More

Great for meeting people but bars are all the same. Food is not top of the line here. Not a top restaurant street. Upper Crescent above de Maissoneuve has some good shops and galleries. A pace to hang out after work and worth a visit on a warm evening in the summer.

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

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.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
