Right on Crescent street, perhaps the best spot for bar/pub/terrace/restaurants in Montreal. Boustan is a simple order over the counter restaurant with tasty food, an indoor area and a small terrace. The overall experience was pleasant except for the ordering being a little pushy. Their...More

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

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