Great shopping street full of stores I was familiar with and other unique locations. Many stores that we no longer have in Ontario still exist here which was great. Overall there is something for everyone including lots of Starbucks for coffee breaks.

My wife and I traveled to MTL this past weekend and even though we have shopped on Saint-Catherine street before it was great to be back as new shops have opened up and the Ogilvy dept. store x-mas window is a must see every year (and a great way to get into the xmas spirit). Even though it is in... More

Veer off the street at Crescent Street & McGill Avenue and take in the lights on these 2 streets and... More

Reviewing rue Ste-Catherine is like reviewing the Mississipi: dépends which part you are referring to ! Ste-Catherine in Montreal shows and different aspects. Let's look at some. Western far section. This is within Westmount's perimeter. Small shops, very boutique and English feeling. Healthy foodies will be satisfied. Western mid-section. Let's say between Atwater and Guy street. Not very appealing, older... More

This is simply a fabulous street for shopping and over the years the shopping options have gotten increasingly amazing!! Of course, my most favourite option is La Maison Ogilvy.

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.
