The Plateau or Plateau Mont-Royal is one of the most densely populated neighbourhoods in Canada, with nearly 100,000 people living in a 7.75 square kilometre area. The Plateau was formerly a working-class neighbourhood, with the Eastern part being largely French-Canadian, and the Western part largely Jewish. The Plateau is characterized by brightly-coloured houses, cafés, book shops, and a laissez-faire attitude. The combination of different immigrant societies--notably many Portuguese and Spanish-speakers--adds to the feeling of tolerance and creates a unique atmosphere. In the 1980s, the area's bohemian aura and proximity to McGill University attracted gentrification. Rents increased, and many of its traditional residents were dispersed to other parts of the city. It now is home to many upscale restaurants and nightclubs. In 1997, Utne Reader judged it one of the 15 "hippest" neighbourhoods in North America.
