The Guide to Creative Montréal’s Quartier des Spectacles tour offers a foray into the fields of performing arts, visual arts (art galleries and public artworks), digital arts, music and design. One of Montréal’s cultural nerve centres, the Quartier des Spectacles entertainment district covers more than one square kilometre (between Rue Sherbrooke and Boulevard René-Lévesque, and between Rue Saint-Hubert and Rue City Councillors), and contributes to the city’s strong presence on the international arts scene. It boasts some 80 cultural venues, including 30 performance halls. The territory covered by this tour, which leads west from Boulevard Saint-Laurent to Avenue McGill College, also features a number of theatres and public artworks, as well as the Luminous Pathway, which highlights the area’s wealth of nighttime attractions. The tour features countless bookstores, record stores, cafes, restaurants and shops where you can stop along the way.
