This is a main drag and so has a lot to see depending on where you are along it. The street itself is not an attraction, but it's the means to getting down to Old Montreal or along to the shopping district (all depending on which direction you're coming from). If you go west along it from Rue Clark onward,... More

Each city has a street which is the heart of the city. You can get familiar with the culture and people of the city through this street, and in the Montreal this street is called saint Catherine. It is crowded, shopping centers, boutiques, cafes and restaurants fill both sides of the street. You can enjoy a whole day walking and... More

Rue St Catherine is one of the principal roads through the city. At the end nearest the central station, there are lots of shops and quite a few sites of great interest. As you move away towards UQAM, it becomes a little less citified and after about 2 miles you end up in the village, which is much more Bohemian... More

Lots of shopping, great restaurants and bars. Reuben's has the best breakfast and great service. Visit Sarah's Souvenirs for great selection of Montreal Canadiens memorabilia and Montreal souvenirs with great friendly service.

Many people live downtown Montreal therefore the city remains vibrant well after working hours and well into the night. The street is alive with people strolling, shopping, coming and going to work, going to dinner, walking home. Montrealers love their coffee shops and restaurants and there are plenty of these. They are comfortable showing affection so don't be surprised to... More

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.
