La Main as Montrealers call it was very trendy a few years ago, at least North of Sherbrooke. Since then all the popular restaurants for the rich and famous have closed. It starts in the old Montreal, you then reach China town, North of Sherbrooke is quite bad until you reach Laurier. Then you arrive in Little Italy with great... More

This IS the street to party in Montreal hands down. At night, you have 30-40 blocks of bars, clubs, and everything in between. Daytime you have amazing little shops, cafes, restaurants, and art galleries. Do take your camera as there are many murals and graffiti on walls and alleyways (on this street and side streets)

This street is so cultural with a variety of restaurants, shops, graffiti alleys, bike rentals and it gets through le Quartier des espectacles. Worth the walk day or night.

We walked up and down this boulevard many times during our recent visit to Montreal. Boulevard Saint-Laurent is an integral part of Montreal city and many locals are ready to say that it is city’s soul.

I love how all through Montreal there is grafetti art. This street has that and plenty of restaurants and cafes to stop along the way.

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighborhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic center of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its center, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theater.
