This street is the heart of commercial Montreal, which means lots of people, a few street people, and a general fast pace. There are seferal vacant storefronts which indicates the same retail struggles seen everywhere. No store stands out, but hugely popular.

Many brand stores which we find almost in evry big city. Restaurants and coffee shops as well. And too much noise of course.

The west side of this street between Atwater and Place Des Arts has more class. St Cathering East after Berri Uqam is low class filled with Junkies and Druggies. It also has the Gay Village which is in desperate need of a clean up! I've...More

Sidewalks...More

Everything is happening on Rue Ste.-Catherine, Restaurants, shopping, people, theatre people watching. You can spend all day there. Even on a rainy day you can head underground for shopping.

Clearly not the longest street in Montreal but probably the most famous street in Montreal. Shops, restaurant and interesting people. Great place to sit in a cafe and watch life go by. A must to all visitors in Montreal. Start at Atwater and walk east....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.
