- This loosely defined area east of downtown starts at Rue Bleury and stretches east to Berri, between Rue Sherbrooke to the north and the Boulevard René-Lévesque to the south. Place des Arts is at the area's center, along with the Cinémathèque Québécoise and other cultural attractions. Rue St-Denis is ground zero for the annual Just For Laughs festival, while the Montreal International Jazz Festival and the Francofolies disperse stages throughout the area. Pubs and bars rule the night; the terraces on St-Denis can be a very civilized place to while away an evening. Worthy nightspots include the giant St-Sulpice.
