Happening street: This block in Little Burgundy is the coolest in Montreal

Jul 27 2022, 7:45 pm

There’s no doubt that Montreal has a flurry of great neighbourhoods, interesting blocks, and happening streets.

But one stands out from the rest ‚ÄĒ which is saying a lot.

Tucked away just southwest of downtown, you’ll find Little Burgundy (Petite-Bourgogne), a neighbourhood that offers a wee bit of something for everyone.

But more specifically, on Notre Dame Ouest between Rue Vinet and Charlevoix, you’ll find a small albeit happening block that is buzzing with great restaurants, bars, cafes, and even a theatre.

You might even bump into former President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sharing a private late-night dinner together.

Heck, there’s even a softball field and a kid’s park there.

From 2441 to 2525 Notre-Dame Ouest, you’ll find an impressive selection of shops and must-try restaurants, including the likes of Joe Beef ‚ÄĒ often considered one of the best restaurants IN THE WORLD.

Are you still not convinced? Here’s a quick recap of all the spots worth checking out on the incredible block. Because let’s be honest, sending tourists and locals downtown is too easy. This is where it’s at.
