This is a very cool area of Montreal where all the hippest young people hang out. Restaurants and cafes are plentiful and boutique style shops are fun to browse in for both new and vintage items.

We own a place here in the plateau and we live in boston half the time. I have lived around the world and plateau is a unique and amazing place. It used to be a low middle class neighbourhood but it's rather expensive these days. It kept it's artist studios and nonchalant vibe. Mainly French speaking , you can be... More

Our AirBnB was in this area and we were very grateful. It is full of restaurants and easily accessible by the metro. It felt safe for us also, but we were only there for one night.

This is such a great borough to visit in Montreal. There's a bunch of shops and restaurants to visit and such great street art, particularly on Boulevard St. Laurent and Rue St. Denis. Also there's great parks to visit such as the renowned Mont Royal and La Fontaine. If you're from NYC, this area has the same essence of Tribeca... More

The Plateau is a great place to rent an apartment for a few nights and travel out from there to other places. The Sherbrooke and Mont Royal (subway) metro stations are convenient for quick access to other points of interest and just a few stops away from Old Montreal. If you drive be careful about parking restrictions and confusing signage.... More

The bike ride up the hill to the Plateau nearly killed me, but once we were there it was wonderful. The district has a lovely laid-back, Bohemian vibe, beautiful apartment homes with colorful doors and winding staircases that make for great photos. I enjoyed strolling around through parks and streets, browsing antique stores, admiring all the street murals, and stopping... More

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighborhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colorful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
