Known as one of the world’s friendliest and liveliest cities, Montréal is recognized for its cosmopolitan side and its openness. In the middle of it all, is famous Crescent Street, the heart of downtown Montréal for tourists and locals alike. A wonderful sense of hospitality characterizes this tiny strip as well as a typical architecture that tends to create a warm and authentic atmosphere.
Sumptuous Victorian architecture has been carefully showcased, giving the Street a distinctive touch of elegance. Home to high-end specialty shops, haute couture showrooms, designer boutiques and art galleries, Crescent Street shopping is the ideal mix of style and class.
With its bars, clubs, restaurants and discotheques, Crescent Street is witness to round-the-clock action. It’s also the place for Formula One fans and party-goers to meet and celebrate events surrounding this famous championship trial.
