A view of Rue Sainte-Catherine in Montréal

Year-round, Montréal boasts an impressive comedy scene. A short walk east on Rue Sainte-Catherine (St. Catherine Street) is the Theatre Sainte Catherine, an under-the-radar destination where local and touring comedians pass through. Here, the neighborhood becomes a strange and beautiful juxtaposition of high-end shops, neighborhood cafés, strip shows and the occasional tattoo parlor, eventually turning into the Gay Village, with block after block of bars, clubs and cafés, including the six-story Le Drugstore, which has a hair salon inside. During one weekend every July, the area is pedestrian-only for Canada's largest sidewalk sale with colorful flags and welcoming vendors lining the busy street.
