This street is so cultural with a variety of restaurants, shops, graffiti alleys, bike rentals and it gets through le Quartier des espectacles. Worth the walk day or night.

We walked up and down this boulevard many times during our recent visit to Montreal. Boulevard Saint-Laurent is an integral part of Montreal city and many locals are ready to say that it is city’s soul. The section of Saint Laurent Boulevard (also known as “the Main") in Montreal is the street food loving, patio chilling, bargain shopping sidewalk sales... More

I love how all through Montreal there is grafetti art. This street has that and plenty of restaurants and cafes to stop along the way.

The street is closed sometimes during the summer, for various festivals and sales. Pedestrians walk freely and participate in the activities. At other times of year, it`s a wonderful place to shop, eat and go clubbing. (If you're so inclined) Most famously, Schwartz`s Deli for Montreal smoked meat is located here.

This is the street in Montreal where you can find a lot of cool bars and restaurant. Don't forget about St-Denis street. There's a lot there too. Between the streets of Ontario and René-Lévesque boulevard

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.
