“Shop till you drop!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

From Luis Vitton to Old Navy, and everything in between, St. Catherine's street has you covered. I was there just after the Santa Claus parade had taken place so there were a ton of people on the streets and in the shops, it was fabulous! There are literally 10 blocks of shops on both sides of the streets. Be ready to shop!

“Montreal, North America's truly International City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2013

Montreal, North America's truly International City with a unique blend of diverse cultures and St. Catherine Street is your thoroughfare to fabulous restaurants, bistro's and boutiques. From the center of downtown (McGill College and St. Catherine St) you can enter the underground shopping plaza of Place Ville Marie and above is a spacious outdoor terrace. As you walk along St. Catherine Street (westward) pay attention to the side-streets like Crescent St., where the Grand Prix festivities are celebrated with a variety of outdoor terraces for people watching, dining or cocktails. The legendary Thursday's bistro/bar&club is a must visit to experience the 'joie de vivre' ambiance that is the signature of Montreal. Just off of St Catherine st. is the Bell Center to watch a hockey game or see one of many concerts that come to Montreal all year round, most hotels will arrange tickets for you. Going eastward and visit Cathedrals, Art Galleries, Philips Square, Place des Arts for concerts, ballet, symphonies as well as international festivals, many stand-up comedy clubs for everyone's sense of humor, all night disco to dance the night away, check local entertainment paper. The city is clean and a police presence is evident - so feel free to walk, dine or have a coffee on St. Catherine Street at any hour of the day or night.

“Shop and eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

Just about anything you need. Even in winter you can shop in comfort as most shops can be accessed without going outside.

“Shop 'til you drop-and grab a bite to eat too!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

Saint Catherine Street is a very long major artery, in Montreal. It is filled with many stores-not just fashion boutiques, but electronic stores, music stores, resataurants... It runs from West to East (or East to West, depending on where you are stayng), and you are sure to find many things to occupy your time.

“Nothing special...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

It's a shopping street. Nothing to be over excited about. There are shops and shops. Nothing to compare to 5th ave. in NY. The only extra points I would give are for the christmas decorations in the Ogilvy store window.
