This stretch of Rue Ste. Catherine, on either side of Boulevard St Laurent was rather depressing. My earliest memories of Montreal included fond memories along this street. I was back here for the first time in years and found it to be rather depressing. I...More

There is high end shopping and hole-in-the-wall great eats along this energized street. It was very cold when we were there but there were plenty of place to hop in and warm our noses.

A street with lots of restaurants, shops and bars. Very nice at night, and quite active. Even during peak winter times, this street is quite busy. Got to see to believe it. You can find almost anything. Quite a popular street.

You need to come here if you want to shop or buy souvenirs. You can shop for hours here. The food here is good here too.

If you want to shop then this is the Main Street to visit. It has a lot of high end stores and some less expensive. Bargins are to be had if you are shrewd and look around.

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.
