Said to be one of the most frequented shopping complexes in Montreal. Set right amidst the Montreal Museum of Contemporary Art and the Place des Arts, and hence attracts a large number of random sightseers as well. The complex contains 36 boutiques, four complete restaurants/cafes for that much needed energy shot, in addition to a thousand-seat food court with 16 mini-restaurants, and a fitness center. The Hotel Wyndham Montreal is also located within the complex, so if you choose to check in, you get a shopping plaza right at your doorstep! The Complexe Desjardins also regularly hosts many of Montreal's public events at its Place de la Galerie Marchande, all free to attend, and is also the stage for internationally acclaimed festivals such as the World Film Festival and the Montreal Jazz Festival.
