The hip side



Description:

This vibrating node of youth culture has a plethora of amazing places to see and to be. Half the pleasure in Montreal is in the less central busily humming neighbourhoods.

Day 1 - Montreal


Maam Bolduc is a cosy spot to start of a trip to Montreal. The close and warm environment along with the creative and delicious breakfasts get you started for the day. The ambience of this little resto reflects the attitude and energy of the Plateau Mont - Royal area in general: laid back, but with some hustle. Galerie L'art du Faux is a galery that specializes in "faux" paintings, copies of famous (or less famous) works of art. It is great to pop by to peruse. Schwartz's is one of the quintessential Montreal experiences, not only for the quality of the food but for the famous brusqueness of the waiters. After you've had your fill (which you'll appreciate after waiting in line for a sandwich for a half an hour) and been shooed out of the resto as quickly as possible head down on foot to the Montreal Just for Laughs Museum. It showcases the Montreal fall festival all year round. It is worth it to make your way up the Main (St. Laurent Street) on foot, there is a little something for everyone here, shops, bars, cafés and a neverending stream of pedestrians. The beginning of the evening is scheduled in little Portugal, at Chez Doval, and the end of the evening up the street at the ultimately hip Plateau bar, Billy Kun.

Day 2 - Montreal


Don't let the exterior of this diner turn you away, the grub is better than the decor might lead you to believe. Today's explorations take you on a journey through a little bit of the history of Montreal's jewish community. The holocaust museum can be an emotional experience, but is well worth the short hike to get there. (Not a literal hike - take the bus or metro to get to Outremont if you don't have a car in town) Take the easy trek back to the centre of the action and spend the late morning / early afternoon meandering along the hidden paths that cross the Mountain. The park, designed by Olmstead, who also designed Central Park in New York City, is crossed by Duluth Street where you will find Santropol café a block from the park- your lunch stop! Their sandwiches are mountains in their own right, and difficult to finish without help. They use primarily organic foods, and across the street their other half works as a volunteer - based meals on wheels project. If you are feeling artsy - fartsy after lunch Oboro is a good stop - otherwise wander along Duluth street until you find something that piques your fancy. The best part of the day is the part that involves submersing yourself entirely in Montreal's adopted religion, the celebration of hockey. McKibbin's pub is a good place to watch the game. Their fries are not what they used to be - but the ambience is wonderful. If you're pickier about food, and want as cheerful (if not quite as raucus) an atmosphere, Hurley's pub on Crescent street, South of St. Catherine's street, has a great "Bookie Special (hot sandwich) and the service is impeccable. Either way - you are in for a good time. This is playoff season! Let the games begin!

Day 3 - Montreal


Café Cherrier shows off the French influence on the city. This small bistro-style place opens early enough for an early brunch, and serves a great eggs Florentine. Making your way North for the day, spend some time meandering through the little streets that link the Plateau with the Mile End, a newly yuppified and yet still artsy-funky neighbourhood. St - Viateur and Bernerd avenue are the main drags, and each has its charms. Both spill over with people on the weekends, and are still heavily busy throughout the week; especially since the Ubisoft corporation moved into the area.

Day 4 - Montreal


Don't expect more than a couple diner benches and a counter to eat at in this hole-in-the-wall morning stop-over. Try the traditional beans - they are what the place is named after, after all! Montreal is not only known for the funky side of town, but the more traditionally touristy spots are popular for a reason. A trip down to the Old Port of Montreal, by the Champs-de-Mars is an absolute must on a visit to this city; as are the Belgian style fries at Frites Alors!
