Well, every city has a shopping zone, but usually it does not span the entire down town center. This one does. It is also loaded with terrific restaurants, coffee shops, patisseries and more. There are always new surprises at each intersection, making Saint Catherine St....More

It is a nice street to relax and enjoy Montreal diversity. You could certainly walk for hours. The experience is different either you are wandering around during the day or at night or during festivals season or holiday, etc. Shopping, restaurants, etc. Enjoy!

Window shop or actually shop... Rue St. Catherine has it all. There are high end shops as well as your "run of the mill" shops. This is where to shop!

For decades this street was the commercial and entertainment heart of Anglo Montreal. Now, like the rest of the city, it's bilingual and multicultural. Plenty of the old landmarks remain with many newer stores, malls & attractions. Still full of life, light and colour. A...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.
