Go Off the Beaten Path in Montreal
Spring, summer, fall and winter, Montréal’s dynamic city centre is the place everyone wants to be. A hotspot for work, study and play, this ebullient hub is home to an eclectic mix of sleek office towers, bustling universities, beautiful Victorian architecture, department stores, gorgeous art galleries and bounty of curated boutiques. Go there to catch a show or festival, shop to your heart’s content on Sainte-Catherine Street, discover its famed cafés, bars and restaurants or see an exhibition at its world-class museums. You can also gaze up at multi-story murals, bliss out in its backyard—Mount Royal—or soak up stunning vistas from the Observatoire Place Ville Marie.
The Golden Square Mile
Stately and sophisticated Golden Square Mile, once the seat of Canada’s wealth, is perfect for some history-rich strolling and sightseeing. Pop into plentiful galleries to sate your art cravings, check out the inspiring exhibitions Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, see glittering minerals and dinosaur skeletons at the Redpath Museum or delve into Montréal’s social history at the McCord Museum. Beautiful buildings styled after Italian villas and Scottish manors are best taken in leisurely, while you might just be tempted by some upscale shopping. Holt Renfrew Ogilvy, Escada or Swarovski, anyone?
The Quartier International
Montréal’s Quartier international is proof that the city really knows how to mix business with pleasure. Take some time to wander this Instagram-worthy modern/historic hub, which straddles downtown and Old Montréal. You’ll see modern architectural inspirations like the bright bubble gum-coloured windows of the Palais des congrès mix with gorgeous greystones, the inviting Square Victoria as well as the breathtaking La Joute sculpture in its fire-and-water display. A leisurely walk will also reveal a bounty of eateries, many high-end, monuments, public art and tasteful design that has reinvigorated urban living.
The Quartier des Spectacles
Montréal so believes in making arts, culture and entertainment accessible that it’s dedicated an entire district to it. From teaching institutions to legendary theatres to Prohibition-era cabarets, this dynamic downtown nexus teems with stories; today, it is home to an impressive 80 cultural venues. Step out in style with the prestigious Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal, catch a cutting-edge exhibition at the Musée d’art contemporain or follow your feet to the amazing architectural lighting and video projections on the façades of buildings. Festivals light it up year-long, with choices ranging from jazz to comedy and African music to digital creativity.
A timeless beauty that’s always on-trend, Old Montréal dazzles with its multilayered offering. Here is where stately stone buildings, modern art galleries, cozy cafés, designer boutiques, museums and centuries-old banks, some revamped into gorgeous new venues, happily share cobblestone streets. Must-sees include the sumptuous interior of the Notre-Dame Basilica, the dazzling silver dome of the Bonsecours Market and the tiny but history-rich Notre-Dame-de-Bonsecours Chapel. Dine out at gourmet restaurants, meet up for cocktails in posh bars—many offer spectacular rooftop views—, belt it out in “boîtes à chansons” or chill with great music in speakeasies, lounges and jazz bars.
This colourful and exuberant neighbourhood epitomizes Montréal’s open mindset, where inclusiveness, community and respect reign. Come warmer weather, you can stroll under the canopy of rainbow balls draped over a car-free stretch of Saint-Catherine’s Street, its main artery, while browsing boutiques and discovering delicious eateries or unearthing vintage treasures on nearby Amherst Street. The epicentre of the city’s Pride events, the Village also an unmissable spot for watching drag shows, belting your heart out at karaoke, hitting the dance floor, admiring public art installations, sipping cocktails and, of course, people-watching.
