This road is busy. There are lots of shopping and bars. You can also catch that tour bus on this road as well. It is only a block off the Green Market square and is great for catching a cab or Uber to other areas...More

General rule of thumb, everything in CT closes at 7/8pm unless in the Waterfront. But long street bars and clubs are open till late.

Also agree with TravelfeetZA : i won't do shopping on this street. Keep a one hour walking to visit it and then have diner somewhere and some bar music. That's it! There is nothing special on this street for shopping.
