If you came to party, Crescent Street is the place to be. Club after club after restaurant after club. And all equally fun. This street caters to both French and English but is predominantly English speaking. Lots of pubs, bars and restaurants and hotel thrown in here and there. A lot of people bar hop on this street in the... More

Totally unexpected find in the middle of Montreal. We had lunch here one day, simple take-out, and it was very, very good (can't remember the name of the restaurant). Very interesting two blocks full of restaurants and boutiques although a bit raucous in the late afternoon from the younger crowd.

This is probably Montreal's most famous pub/restaurant street! You must have a walk there, especially when it's the F1! At night, it might get very busy, therefore park far and walk...

I was fortunate that my work place was on Rene Levesque and just across cresent street. It was Gand-Prix week and I enjoyed each evening after hectic work schedule. It's a 'must go' place to visit if you ever visit Montreal.

Love this street because not only does it have the main stream stores, cafe's, and restaurants. It has some unique boutiques where you can find something original. The people are very friendly and warm. I needed to spend more time just walking around. Til next time!

We were in Montreal for the F1 GP so Crescent street was very very busy, however, before the F1 kicked in we visited Cresent and I was underwhelmed by most of the bars. Some nice restaurants but most of the bars are overpriced with imposing doormen. There are better places one street in all directions

Biggest percentage of alcohol consumption and dance floors on single square kilometer in Montreal. A street that you would go at 7PM and at 3AM still wouldn't want to leave.

Great street to hit if you want a variety of bars and restos to choose from. Dancing is an option at a couple of clubs and this street is always bustling with activity if you are a visitor to the city.

Good restaurants and bars, where u can sit on the terraces and enjoy the sun and people watch. Also, some very good shopping! It's an expensive street but fun.

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.
