Unique local shops along with main stream chain shops. Food and clothing stores. The underground mall is a great way to spend a day shopping in cold or rainy weather

Great main drag for shopping in Montreal. Major department stores and chains are here. (Except the high end ones). Always very busy and crowded. Some construction happening which narrows the sidewalks. Some good restaurants on the street or just on side streets. I enjoyed walking...More

To have traffic and pedestrians side by side is the mark of a booming city. St. Catherine is just that. We cannot forget the fine restaurants on this street. You might want to try Mr Steer. A great walk to get to see and hear...More

Took a walk down the Rue to see the sights. It has a ton of restaurants and high end shops. Wasn't as trashy as I was told it would be. Yes there are Strip clubs....but they seemed to be just off of Sainte Catherine.

No visit to Montreal is complete without a stroll along St. Catherine street. It is the shopping mecca of Montreal. It's in the heart of downtown and you will find tons of shops and restaurants. All trendy.

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.
