The Neighborhood
Plateau Mont Royal and Mile End

 

Ancre 1

Le Plateau

 

At  crossroads of the famous district "Le Plateau" , affectionate diminutive used by Montrealers, district adjacent to downtown Montreal, it extends from the edge of the emblematic mountain Mont Royal.

 

A dynamic district distinguished by its bustling commercial avenues, charming residential streets, colorful houses and spiral staircases.

It is home to the most beautiful and fun parks in the city such as the emblematic Lafontaine Park just a stone's throw from the apartments, Laurier Park, Mount Royal to name a few.

 

One of the trendiest neighborhoods in Montreal, it emanates from cafes, bars, bookstores, restaurants and boutiques, residents and merchants passionate about their work and lots of charm awaits you.

Plan an outing

No one is surprised that Montrealers like to eat well and have a drink at night. The bars and restaurants of the Plateau Mont-Royal are quite plentiful, and quite attractive, too. While most tourists will mistakenly choose to stay downtown or Old Montreal for a nightcap, there are some real gems to be found further north where locals go to congregate.

 

I recommend that you go for a drink at 5-7 in the bars where you can see the buzz of the residents. Some of our favorite cafes, restaurants, bars in Plateau Mont-Royal:
