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

There are some amazing restaurants and bars along Crescent Street. It's busy and quite a site. Great spot to visit if you are an English-speaking tourist. It's exciting and vibrant at night. Definite must-go to place on a trip to Montreal.

Crescent hasn't changed much over the years; has always been Montreal's refuge for the English community and its guests from all over the world. An attraction in itself during race week. Major attraction for young adults is the drinking age of 18.....something your eager teens may have forgotten to mention when they eagerly agreed to do a family visit here....great... More
