Shopping is not that good. Not too many good restaurants. If it wasn't for McGill & Concordia, this street would be pointless. In fact, it's main purpose is an entry point to the Underground City. Wake up Montreal.

The main shopping street, it is bustling with energy. Part of it becomes pedestrianized, a smart idea. Many places to eat, a few malls, the big stores (La Baie-The Bay) and a great crowd watching place. Recommended.

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.

Yes that is correct, Just go to Basilica of Notre Dame and they are located on the North East corner of the square in front of the basilica.
