So hot and yet so cool—You are located at the edge of the Plateau which moves to its own funky beat. Wrought-iron staircases, old-style stone masonry, walk-up duplexes, imported cars, second-hand bicycles, designer fashion boutiques and funky friperies (used clothing) stores: this working-class-turned-yuppie neighbourhood with bohemian undercurrents is by far the grooviest scene in Montréal. Those of us who don’t live here come to play as often as possible. The Plateau is the best window to view the real Montréal. Here you’ll find a predominantly francophone community (many from France) 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. Round it off with a wealth of interesting shops, cafés, pubs and bars, not to forget black-box theatres, art galleries and gourmet shops, and you’ve got a free-spirited, creative atmosphere where all walks of life converge. We live and play in the eastern shadow of Mount Royal. The edgy urban vitality of our dynamic commercial arteries—such as Saint-Laurent Boulevard or “the Main”, 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 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.

Located in the heart of Little Italy (right around the corner), the Jean-Talon Market is one of the oldest public markets in Montréal. When it originally opened in May of 1933, it was named “Marché du Nord” (north-end market) before becoming the Jean-Talon Market, named in honour of the first Intendant of New France. The Jean-Talon Market is known for its numerous local fruit and vegetable vendors as well as the cultural diversity of its shopkeepers. It is one of the largest public markets in North America and its atmosphere is lively in both summer and winter. It’s like a little village, a place where families have gathered and generations have grown, merchants and customers alike. At the Jean-Talon Market, you won’t just find fruits and vegetables, but also flowers, spices, oils, cheese, meat, fish and artisanal bakery goods, in addition to a wide selection of regional products from all over Québec! Not too mention the food - try the savoury french crepes, the fried calamaris or just sit down for coffee and a french pastry.
Marc-Favreau Public Library
Located right across the street on Rosemont, the Marc-Favreau Public Library, measuring more than 3000 m², is one of the largest in Montréal’s Network of Public Libraries. Named in honour of the actor and creator of the clown character Sol, this modern state-of-the-art library was designed along four key themes: family vocation, new technologies, design and sustainable development. The library houses a reading room for adults, a colourful room with a heated floor for young children from newborns to age 4, and a corner for teens featuring the latest in technology.
Only 10 minutes drive into the downtown core where you will find myriad places for shopping, dining, live events and entertainment
Parc La Fontaine
Parks & NatureParks
3933 Avenue du Parc la Fontaine
Lafontaine Park is Plateau Mont-Royal’s biggest park. A 40-hectare gem of traditional park landscaping, it includes two linked ponds with a fountain and waterfalls, soccer and baseball fields, beach volleyball, pétanque, a dog park, picnic areas and playgrounds, wading pools, several pieces of memorial statuary and many trees including numerous imposingly huge poplars. The park's Centre culturel Calixa-Lavallée is the site of Art neuf, a school of the arts. The open-air Théâtre de Verdure that offered a summertime program for many years has been closed for two summers awaiting work, but is now expected to reopen in time for summer 2017 and the city’s 375th anniversary. A bike path runs along the park’s western edge, and on the north side if Rachel Street's path. The park is a crossroads of cycling in this part of town, with the Maison des cyclistes, well positioned at the axis of two major bike paths, just outside the park at the corner of Rachel and Brébeuf. The park has a lot of squirrels, including occasional pale champagne quasi-albino ones, but it’s so much a true city park that there are no semi-wild forested areas left and thus no space for bigger wildlife.
Beaver Lake/ Lac aux Castors

3624 Rue Notre
Located in the southwest of Montréal near the Lachine Canal, the Atwater Market and bordering street are named after the 19th century businessman and municipal politician, Edwin Atwater. It was established in 1933 and its art-deco style architecture makes it one of Montréal’s most beautiful buildings. Open year-round, Atwater Market is known for its many butchers and delicatessens, as well as its horticultural vendors and farmers whose kiosks are brimming with fresh produce and border the perimeter of the building from spring through summer. Its many shopkeepers offer a wide variety of fresh, unique and specialty products. The expertise and dedication of many of the merchants have been passed down from generation to generation and have helped build Atwater Market’s reputation internationally. The Atwater Market is smaller compared to the Jean-Talon Market.
There are numerous restaurants and bars. You really are spoiled for choice of what to eat and where to have a few cocktails. Although it doesn't have the same charm as Old Montreal, Crescent Street has its own qualities that make it an enjoyable place to visit.
