Get inspired by our lists built around a theme, and experience Montréal to the hilt.
The eclecticism, creative energy and bohemian spirit emanating from these two dynamic urban hubs are appreciated.
Cafés, bars, shops, bookstores and restaurants are side by side with former textile mills and churches converted into businesses or condos. A true nerve centre of the Montréal artistic community, the Plateau stands out for its lively commercial avenues, its charming shaded residential streets, its colourful houses and its celebrated spiral staircases. Marginal and cosmopolitan, Mile End is totally in tune with the times. Unearth vintage finds, enjoy original dishes, and don’t forget the famous Montréal bagels.
