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

headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by

youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
