The Plateau Mont-Royal
So hot and yet so cool—the Plateau 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 frip 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 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.
