Located in the borough of Ville-Marie, the district is situated on the southernmost slope of Mount Royal. According to the strictest definition, it is bounded by Sherbrooke Street to the north, Saint Hubert Street to the east, Guy Street to the west, and Notre-Dame Street to the south. Wider definitions may extend to Atwater Street to the west, Papineau Avenue to the east, and Avenue des Pins to the north.

The Bell Centre, used for ice hockey and other events, lies in the central/southern portion of Downtown Montreal. Place Des Arts is located in the eastern part of the city’s downtown, between Ste-Catherine and de Maisonneuve Streets, and St-Urbain and Jeanne-Mance streets, in an area now known as the Quartier Des Spectacles, the complex is home to the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, Les Grands Ballets De Montreal, and the Opera de Montreal. Percival Molson Memorial Stadium lies just to the North of Pine Avenue at the edge of Downtown Montreal. (taken from Wikipedia.)
