Fountains, music, benches to sit, restaurants, dessert shops, and stores line Sainte-Catherine - hub of activity. Great area with close proximity to the convention center (Palais de Congress) and Old Montreal.

My family enjoyed walking up and down this famous street which was buzzing with energy. We aren't really into shopping, but it was fun to see everything and experience life in the city.

Some of it is now pedestrianized. Lots of places to eat. Since I last visited, it's come alive again.

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.
