There are many festivals that take place here. It’s a vibrant atmosphere and the underground city is widely accessible.

We were supposed to be stopping by this place to check it out but we couldn't find any parking. Best to go by foot.

The boundaries are a bit fluid; it isn't all about the "Complexe Desjardins" and "Complexe Guy-Favreau." What set this apart for us was the great graffiti art and the Olympic Building and setting. The modernistic take on the Olympic torch was quite impressive, as was the imaginative mural on the buildings we passed.

There were no grand and glorious shows or concerts in progress during our recent stay; we had a chance to see it without all the bells, whistles, and spectacular lights..

Visited the Quartier 2x during the 2019 Jazz Festival. Took in 5 different free concerts. Not very jazzy, but entertaining. Great attrtaqc

ctions, food, etc within easy walking distance. Metro is the only way to come and go with the crowds, congestion, construction in Montreal, etc.

Although all the construction in this area since a few years now it is still an amazing place to come during many festivals. The area is getting nicer every year. I came during the jazz festival during the first few days and it was packed with people. Free live shows during the day and at night and then the big show on main stage at 930pm. The Jazz festival is a very busy time for Montreal because people come from all over the world to experience. The Quartier des Spectacles is definitely a must in the summer months because of its live music and festivals plus all the good restaurants to choose from.

I enjoyed visiting the Quartier des Spectacles during the Jazz festival. Lots of différents sports for everyone (kids and adults), and when it’s too hot go to Desjardins Pavillion to take some rest.

This is a great place to visit. Place Des Arts is there. Many restaurants are in the area. The largest Jazz Festival in the world is held there every summer. There are play areas and water fountains for the kids to play in. The streets are closed to cars during the Festival. Just for Laughs is also held there.

Usually will find an event going on here with lots of things to do and plenty of people watching. Lots of shopping and restaurants nearby.

I only assume in the summer and better weather it will be the space to go but overall, a nice touch on open space that Montreal has used to bring people outside.
