Where to go
Aux Alentours

Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth Hotel
From the restaurant to the bar, by way of a market and urban café featuring local products and talents, the Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth Hotel is the embodiment of a concept that reflects its fascinating history: “For Montrealers, by Montrealers.” Since 1958, this luxury hotel has been transforming the hotel experience, making it the destination par excellence for Montrealers and travelers from all around the world.

Place Ville Marie
PVM is much more than an office tower, it’s a place where you can expect the unexpected every day—where everything comes together at the very heart of Montreal. It’s a business campus, an esplanade designed to be a venue for a wide variety of activities worthy of a great international metropolis, and a reinvented gourmet food hall at the centre of an upscale retail gallery. A vibrant, colorful meeting place, PVM is more than ever the epicentre of Montreal’s downtown urban experience.

Centre Eaton de Montréal

Located at the heart of the city on Montreal’s iconic Sainte-Catherine Street, the Centre Eaton de Montréal is downtown’s largest retail hub. Gateway to Montreal’s famous underground city, the retail center welcomes over 30 million visitors every year. With close to 125 boutiques and restaurants, it’s the city’s favorite shopping destination. Offering an enhanced urban experience, the Centre Eaton de Montréal is home to Canada’s first Time Out Market, a showcase for Montreal gastronomy and culture.

Place Montréal Trust
At the bustling corner of McGill College and Sainte-Catherine streets, Place Montréal Trust offers a wide array of fabulous stores, including Zara, Indigo, Winners and DeSerres, as well as the Nautilus Plus fitness centre. During the holiday season, the huge indoor fountain is transformed into the site of a giant animated Christmas tree that has become the symbol of the holiday season in downtown Montreal for young and old alike.


          The Aux Alentours cultural village has been made possible thanks to the collaboration of Ivanhoé Cambridge and its properties: Place Ville Marie, Centre Eaton de Montréal, Fairmont Le Reine Elizabeth and Place Montréal Trust.
