We had fun wandering about. Fun bars, cool boutiques, easily walkable. I love the street art in this city. I am glad I don't live in a place where poutine is that readily available!

Felt like Times Square. Lots of places to shop but none we wanted to go into. Definitely a place to skip, basically just mall shops.

Our hotel [at Drummond] was just off St. Catherine Street. This is not really an upscale shopping street for the few blocks east of Drummond. It improves in the couple of blocks west of Drummond.

Nice touristy main thoroughfare of Montreal. Chain stores and strip joint right next to each other. Some decent restaurants and architecture. Goes very long. If I had to recommend a favorite section, I’d say near the intersection of Rue Crescent.

took a leisurely walk along Rue Ste.Catherine and was amazed at the throngs of people all out and having a good time. Our early afternoon stroll took us past many many shops and even more pubs and restaurants. If people watching is your thing, then...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.

Almost always, there are a bunch of carriages lined up right at the square across from the big church in Old Montreal, Notre Dame.
