Came here a couple nights in early October, when tourist season was way over. Place was kinda dead, but you could always negotiate for deals at certain places since business was slow. I can imagine this place hoppin' on a summer Friday evening! Will come back!

Stayed in the Village so walked along here to get into Montreal on first day - very drab. Happy to get Metro pass and went on train thereafter.

If you are into shopping, you should hit this street. In the downtown area the St catherine street is the place to be. Furthermore nothing special.

This was a typical shopping street with some unique stores and lots of people. It didn't really inspire me to buy anything.

St Catherine's is a bustling, busy street where one can find practically everything ranging from very low-priced to expensive. Down the west side I found an APPLE STORE where the employees were much more friendly and helpful than in Paris.

Nice for a walk, always local talent. Close to many other main streets, lots of stores. I love the atmosphere. You will usually see dancers and the like there putting on a show. Worth a look.
