Outremont, once its own town, was incorporated into Montreal in 2002. Located five minutes from downtown, it is a predominately residential area, home to well-known Québec artists and celebrities and to Montreal's Hasidic Jewish community. Outremont offers shopping and dining along popular avenue Bernard and rue Laurier ouest.
