The Plateau is an inner city neighborhood in Montreal. To many, it is defined as a destination for Montreal's best restaurants and nightclubs, but knowing the history of over 100 years as a working class residential neighborhood for primarily French-speaking citizens of Montreal, today it is a vibrant place to live, work and play. Le Plateau Mont-Royal is a definite destination for all WestJet travelers visiting Montreal. It represents the true "Esprit" of what Montreal is, was, and will be!
There are amazing parks, restaurants, nightlife, and historical architecture...
City planners established the "BIXI" communal bike system based on the demographic and lifestyle of Plateau residents! The Bixi concept has since become an international iconic phenomenon! There has been preservation of historical structures and buildings while managing to integrate more modern habitation buildings seamlessly in forms of condos and apartments, both for rent and purchase.
The Plateau is vital to Montreal as it truly represents the mixed demographic of what Montreal is...French/English/Student/Gay etc... I believe it is the most multicultural neighborhood in Canada. I feel that’s the reason it is so wonderful!
