The Guide to Creative Montréal’s Quartier Concordia and West End of Downtown tour offers a foray into the fields of performing arts, visual arts (art galleries and public artworks), digital arts, music and design. There’s far more to culture downtown than just the Quartier des Spectacles. On this tour, you’ll discover the west end of downtown, as well as the enclaved municipality of Westmount. Much of the area is made up of what’s recently been named the Quartier Concordia. With major institutions like the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts and the Canadian Centre for Architecture, and with the creativity spilling forth from Concordia University and its fine arts programs in nine disciplines (including music and theatre), the area is far from starved for culture. The tour features countless bookstores, record stores, cafes, restaurants and shops where you can stop along the way.
