Le Plateau Mont Royal Montreal

Le plateau mont royal and Mile End are some of the most colorful and diverse neighborhoods in Montreal. This bohemian area moves to its own groovy beat. Stone masonry buildings, walk-up brownstones, wrought iron staircases, bicycles, designer boutiques and hip cozy restaurants.  Even if you don’t live here, this will be a place where you will want to explore and spend some time. The Plateau is the best window to view the real Montréal. This neighborhood is a predominantly francophone community featuring an eclectic mix of artists, students, yuppies, and young families, spiced with a healthy dose of other cultures and languages to raise the diversity quotient that much higher. With a wealth of interesting shops, cafés, pubs and bars, art galleries and gourmet shops, you’ve got a free-spirited, creative atmosphere where all cultures and walks of life converge. The edgy urban vitality of our dynamic commercial arteries—such as Saint-Laurent Boulevard, where Montréal’s ethnic communities first set up shop, Saint-Denis Street with its designer boutiques and cafés, Prince-Arthur Street’s BYOW terraces and restaurants, and Mont-Royal Avenue’s trendy hotspots—is balanced by the tranquility and fresh air afforded by luxurious green spaces such as Parc La Fontaine. The Plateau mont royal by night, heats up with as many choices of clubs, bars and cafés as you could think of, ranging from fashionable martini lounges to local microbrewery pubs to high-octane coffee shops. Throw in a thriving arts scene where local artists take to the stage nightly, and you’ve got the makings for a perfect night on the town
