Classic street for pubs, bars and restaurants

Always easy to find a place to eat or sit and have a drink. Winnie's (winston's) pub always great for simple and friendly fare

Crescent street is a lively area of shops, restaurants and provides a general feel for lively Montreal. It is a must see and experience place from Sherbrooke all the way down the hill!

Crescent street is lined with various pubs and restaurants, one would surely suite your fancy. From Sir Winston;s Pub, which is an icon of Montreal to Thursdays. For happy hour, for a quiet drink after work, or for dancing and meeting friends on the weekend. Crescent Street offers it all. Have fun! Drink Responsibly!

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.

Went to several different bars that night as part of our bachelor's party and had a blast. Everyone spoke English and was very friendly to us all night. A must do while in Montréal.

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.

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.
