Most people visit for the cafes and restaurants and bike hire.Just another Montreal Street though.One visit is enough unless you have a reason to return.

We were in Montreal Nov. 9-13 and it was FREEZING but still walked Crescent Street and it was awesome! I wish we were there in the summer cause Crescent Street is the place to be!

Tiny quaint shops with fun people watching, and amazing architecture! It feels so European you may forget you are in Canada!

We tried the Burger Bar for the first time and we were well served by friendly staff. The burgers we ordered where delicious. It is a great place to visit if you want to try different burgers.

Went bridal shopping ended up finding our bridesmaid dresses but a lot of the stores are to busy to help. When they do help they pressure you to buy.

Looking for somewhere to eat or drink? This is the street. Crescent street is the most central street for all the patios and pubs during the summer months. It's also one of the hubs for the F1 Racing festivities of track.

Wonderful place for tourists to visit especially during summer festivals and nice weather. Have a meal or your favorite beverage on one of the many terraces on the street. Great for people watching.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood 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.
