“Summertime, the living is easier!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

Rue St-Denis, between Sherbrooke and St. Catherine, is pretty ho-hum in mid-winter, a street like any other. It really comes into its own in summertime, however, when Montreal is alive with festivals of all kinds and outdoor cafes abound! Above Sherbrooke, the boutiques of St-Denis attract clients all year round, as do some of Montreal's best restaurants. L'Express has been going since the 70s and is still an excellent spot for classic bistro fare.

“walk and visit”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

during the day, it is easy. At night, there are shows so many people walk around and they are buzy. Lots of restaurant on St-Denis always an interesting crowd there.

“Could easily do a bar crawl”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

There are a few coffee shops and retail shops on the northern end, but it's more a bar strip. There's heaps of decent places to go for a drink at night, and it's quite bustling with music venues. Walk into any of the bars down the end of St Denis near Berri-UQAM and you'll have a good night.

“Head north on St-Denis !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

St-Denis street has 2 distinct parts.
Most of the reviews talk about the southern part (near Ste-Catherine st.).
But please... head north ! (north of Sherbrooke st. even as north as Mont-Royal st.)
There, you will find a different kind of restaurants and boutiques than around Ste-Catherine st.
Upscale stores, used books stores, small cafes, art galleries, cool simple or upscale restos, gourmet food stores, etc...
The best way to enjoy it is to spend the afternoon on St-Denis st, walking and exploring the different stores; then, having dinner in the restaurant that you would have chosen during your walk and maybe even having a drink during the evening in one of the small bars on St-Denis or Mont-Royal.
Northern is better !! : )
