Everything, good and bad, happens here. This road is the heart of downtown Montreal. From shopping to festivals anything related to outdoor activities is hosted here. It's Montreal's very own version of Times Square.

Several shops and restaurants on both sides of the road and down the side streets. While we were visiting, there was a free EDM festival done one of the side streets that was a lot of fun.

Lots of shops and a few restaurants along this street. Most are big stores that you see in the US but it was still fun to walk around and window shop.

This is where you will find all the major department stores and high street shops. Can get busy. No bargains after the tax has been added.

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.
