Description
The mix of cultures, tastes, and styles that characterizes Montreal has its heart at the Boulevard Saint-Laurent. Once the point of division between the anglophone and francophone parts of the city, ... Read more
the Boulevard Saint-Laurent, nicknamed The Main, runs north-south through the city is also the site of Montreal's Little Italy, Little Portugal, a small Chinatown as well as a historic Jewish quarter. This also makes it the locus of life for the young and creative-minded population of Montreal. No place embodies the color and vibrancy of life in Montreal better than the Boulevard Saint-Laurent.

First to Review

This street has many different areas. It is known as the old demarcation between French and Anglo Montreal. It starts in old Montreal, where it is impossible not to want to loose yourself walking the cobblestoned streets. It continues north, passing venues for the Jazz and Just for Laughs festivals. Once past Sherbrooke, it becomes a living history of immigration and culture in Montreal. In a few short blocks, you can see ethnic restaurants of all sorts, interspersed with cookware shops, hasidic goods stores, ethnic butchers, cheese shops, nightclubs, and local clothing boutiques. As you keep going north, you will pass little Portugal. The street will change again to host a multitude of furniture and art shops, mostly local. You will get tired from walking before this street looses it's charm.

If you are tight on time in Montreal, wandering down St-Laurent will fill you up with sights and sounds and foods. It's also a good line between anglo and francophone Montreal, full of nightlife and every summertime event known to man.

Best place to find Montreal's nightlife. People ranging from 19-30 will definitely have a good time here. If you don't like one club you can just leave and cross the street to another club you find more intriguing.

A quick 10 minute walk from my condo on Berri Street will bring you to one of the hippest and trendiest streets in the city. Great restaurants, funky boutiques and far out nightlife - not to be missed!

Boulevard Saint-Laurent was okay. I think I missed the good restaurants and stores on this street since I wasn't that impressed.

Goes from Old Port through the Plateau and God knows where else. I'm giving this 5 stars essentially for the Plateau. Saint-Laurent and Saint-Denis are the main drags for hipster-kind.

Walk up this hipster-ish street and you'll find cool vintage shops, DJ equipment, cute cafés, even Canadian army surplus stores and a tiny Chinatown.
