Mile End since the 1980s has been known for its Anglophone culture and as an artistic neighbourhood, home to artists, musicians, writers , filmmakers, many art galleries, designers’ workshops, boutiques and cafés are found here. The computer graphics software house Discreet Logic made a mark on the area by renovating part of an old clothing factory in the early 1990s. In 1997, this space became the new Montreal studios of computer game developer Ubisoft, expanded since to take over much of the building. Mile End has become noticeably richer and more popular since the mid-90s:
The writer Mordecai Richler grew up on Saint-Urbain Street in the 1930s and 40s, and wrote about the neighbourhood in several of his novels. Wilensky’s Light Lunch, which is still open on Fairmount at Clark, features memorably in The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz and the film based on it. William Shatner grew up in Mile End
In 2005, Mile End was described in several music magazines, notably Spin and Pitchfork Media, as the heart of the independent music scene in Montreal. Independent record label Mile End Records is also named after the neighbourhood as one of the founders once lived there.
The area is also home to the city’s two most famous bagel bakeries, Fairmount Bagel and St-Viateur Bagel.
