Crescent street is amazing and is part of the culture in Montreal and has been since the early 1960 lunch dinner or just having a beverage its a great place for the young at heart!

The buzz is there! Try one of the events like the Grand prix weekend. When it's quiet there are always the restaurants or at least a beer. And close to the museums as well.

This street has charming architecture and is full of little boutiques, cafes, and restaurants. Unlike other parts of Montreal, the sidewalk is clear and easy to walk on in the middle of January, not slushy or muddy.

Ate at Dundees....good food; however the service really needs to be supervised. Had to wait more than 30 minutes for water and decided to leave...then my bill was jacked up. Over paid due to an employees dumbness.

Everyone who's anyone goes to Crescent Street for drinks; but the street also offers great people watching, dining and a few really nice shops.

Just about any kind of food and drink. We went there several times and never needed reservations - this was in the middle of the week.

The 3 blocks of Rue Crescent between René Lévesque Boulevard and Sherbrooke are so much fun! Both sides of the street are lined with shops and cafes and restaurants. And not just at street level. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for second-floor places you access from sidewalk-level iron steps, or even subterranean "basement" places that are below ground... More

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.
