Gastronomy, music, history and vast green space come together in the southwest neighbourhood of Saint-Henri, a prime destination for upscale living, recreation and fine dining. An eclectic urban village, Saint-Henri offers a mix of modern and hip intermingled with shades of its industrial past.
Tucked between Westmount and the Lachine Canal, Saint-Henri is a study in contrast, with a population as diverse as its architecture. Factories turned high-end condos, picturesque back alleys and impressive stone monuments dot this former bastion of Montréal’s French-speaking working class, now home to a multicultural mix of urban professionals, artists and families.
In this foodie haven you’ll find the Atwater Market, one of the city’s largest farmer’s markets, and Notre-Dame Street with some of the best restaurants and bars in the city. From Vietnamese to Mexican, French, Lebanese and beyond: in Saint-Henri, the world is on your plate.
One of three boroughs that make up the Quartiers du Canal (along with Griffintown and Little Burgundy), Saint-Henri exudes an understated charm. A dynamic indie arts scene, restaurants and cafés galore, impressive heritage architecture and evolving streetscapes along the historic Lachine Canal make it one of Montréal’s most exciting neighbourhoods.
