St Catherine Street is a destination in itself. You will find unique shops and old favourites, including major department stores. Many of the buildings along the street are heritage buildings such as Birks built in 1894. As you stroll along the street you will find many good restaurants and other entertainment venues. There is an abundance of shops under the... More

This is the place to be if you're visiting Montreal. We vacationed here and found ourselves on this street everyday. It is a happening place to go. I would suggest getting accommodations in close proximately to this street if you are visiting Montreal. This is where you find the food trucks, many festivals including the just for laughs festival, many... More

On this dynamic street you'll find hundreds of shops of all types and underground galeries. Latter are mostly for winter times though worth the visit during summmer time. The sign RESO indicates an entrance for underground galeries. More or less at the level of St Denis street pink balls suspended in St Catherine street make a nice decoration and extend... More

Make sure as you walk along Rue Ste. Catherine that you take your time! Our leisurely stroll included stopping for an outside lunch. The most fun, besides people watching, was stopping to enjoy some truly talented buskers. Make sure you reward them for their talents.

Well it has gone downhill a little with the food prices going up quite a bit compared to years past. Still lots of variety for choices with all the ethnic diversity in the downtown core. Great place for shopping. You'll find more styles and fashion around St Catherines st than most any other place in Canada. Everything is in walking... More

I was hoping for a more unique Montreal experience when we set out to explore Ste-Catherine. There were certainly lots of restaurants with outside terraces lining this pedestrian street, and we read about many well-reviewed bars. We were hoping for a greater number of interesting stores, though, and a more unique character to the neighborhood. It was an enjoyable stroll,... More

As usual from morning till dawn, St Catherine is the place to be. Long stretch of street with loads of restaurants, shopping from high end to everyday shops/depannuer, to adult entertainment, pharmacies, bars, office building, you name it, you'll find it there.People from locals to tourists are ever present from morning till past midnight. You'll feel safe.

Although slightly trashy rue Ste. Catherine gives, from one end to the other, a good perspective on the Montreal of today. It has all sort of shops, from high end orthopedic to sex shops, with many of Montreal's ethnic restaurants along the way. Full of tourists, as one would expect, but fairly clean and we felt safe during the daytime... More

This is the most interesting street in Montreal with so much shopping and adult entertainment all around. The simple fact that there is a church across from the World Famous Club Super Sex says it all. It has shopping, food, bars and a whole lot more. This is a definite must do while in Montreal!

Staying in Quartier des Spectacles

Neighborhood 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, theaters, and exhibition centers 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.
