Took our time wandering around the area and looking at the shops and buildings. The street is quite long and runs into others.

You have to like shopping, name brands, and bustling about to enjoy this stretch. I'd rather wander the side streets and enjoy the character and oddities instead.

Lots of stores & coffee shops. You can get sucked in. If you need some retail therapy this is the street you want. There are Metro stations close by.

Stretching for 9 miles from east to west, Rue Sainte Catherine is one of Montreal's major shopping streets. There are department stores such as La Baie (the Bay) near Square Phillip, unique boutiques, major chain sores, upscale shops,restaurants and entrances to Underground Montreal.

Fun place to hangout while in Montreal downtown. Lots of bars and restaurants and shops and great for people watching. Gets busy so parking is impossible and always a wait at a busy place....but great place to hang out with friends.

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

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

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.
