To really get a feel for the place, take a stroll along the narrow, winding, side streets, particularly Lartigue Street, and admire the carefully restored brick homes and shaded backyard gardens.
The neighbourhood features a wide variety of service industries, including cafés, boutiques, antique shops and restaurants for every palate.
From kitsch to chic, the Village offers a unique shopping experience. A stroll on Atateken Street is sure to please home decorating enthusiasts and vintage style aficionados. Visit the antique shops that specialize in objects from the 1930s to the 1970s while the Art Deco architecture of the impressive Saint-Jacques Market building and the Écomusée du fier monde are worthy of admiration.
During the summer season, Sainte-Catherine Street turns into a lively pedestrian zone. But the LGBTQ+ Village hums all year long. Lounges, bars, boîtes, afterhours clubs and drag queens are all part of the Village entertainment scene.
