The area is near the University of Quebec in Montreal and is home to shopping, music venues and the Musée d'art contemporain de Montreal.

To have traffic and pedestrians side by side is the mark of a booming city. St. Catherine is just that. We cannot forget the fine restaurants on this street. You might want to try Mr Steer. A great walk to get to see and hear...More

Took a walk down the Rue to see the sights. It has a ton of restaurants and high end shops. Wasn't as trashy as I was told it would be. Yes there are Strip clubs....but they seemed to be just off of Sainte Catherine.

Shops very disappointing but as it was hallowe'en weekend I saw Batman, Robin and numerous zombies. A lot of closed down shops, avoid the tourist tat shops here too.

No visit to Montreal is complete without a stroll along St. Catherine street. It is the shopping mecca of Montreal. It's in the heart of downtown and you will find tons of shops and restaurants. All trendy.

Ste-Cath. West, Westmount has charm since there they preserved the historic aspects of the street Downtown, it is a normal busy place for shopping nothing extravagant East, it is poor... except starting at Berri and more east where you have the Gay Village. No cars...More

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young

I am not sure but I would guess at least until midnight. Find a restaurant you would be interested and look them up online or call them. We were there until 10.30pm and the street was bussing. Hope this helps.
