St Catherine street has evolved over the years to newer and better shopping and now has a great representation of high end shops. A great walk for a shopping afternoon, and stop for a bite to eat at any number of a dozen good restaurants. Don't miss all the shops hidden in the underground concourses. Always something under construction and... More

This street is really the one in the center of the downtown core. You can find many many shops and restaurants with reasonable prices. Definitely a visit in case you are just travelling via Montreal or staying for few days.

With the American dollar buying $1.30 Canadian, now's the time to bring home good stuff. Look for honest made-in-Canada merchandise. Winter jackets, some with fur-lined hoods, deserve your attention. All fur is from animals approved for this use by the government.

Yes, perhaps it is the of the more popular areas in Montréal, but it looks very similar to other shopping areas in major cities. Nice for a stroll, an area that should be seen, pleasant but nothing special.

I am not into churches but, it was a beautiful structure. I stayed outside while other in our group went in. There were street musicians and stores nearby so, we walked around the area and had a fun time.

Some of the stores are run-down, and commercial buildings are old. It is not at all equivalent to Ste-Catherine St. in Montreal.

The street is very well maintained. Everything and I mean everything is available to you and your shopping needs. You have coffee joints, breakfast spots, hookah lounges, pharmacies, top notch branded stores and lots beautiful architecture to see as well.

Staying in Quartier des Spectacles

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier des Spectacles
The bar-none entertainment district for music and arts, Quartier des Spectacles is an interactive playground that delights the senses. It totals over 30 performance halls, with the vibrant Place des Festivals at its heart. The outdoor event space features glowing towers, glass edifices, and granite-lined bike paths, and hosts annual festivals, concerts, and comedy nights. The cinema, theatres, and exhibition centres are entwined with external art projects, exemplified at Montreal's Contemporary Art Museum and appearing along every walkway of the Promenade des Artistes in the form of sculpture and public works, from digitally-enhanced swingsets to glowing fountains. Design, performance, and alternative music come together here, a stone's throw from the lively Latin Quarter along Rue Saint-Denis, the quintessential after-party spot for dinner and a drink following a day of jazz, poetry and play.
