Found this place accidentally. Very easy to get there. Take subway to Union station and take bus to get there. Lots of small shops and neat restaurants. With nice weather, u would enjoy a nice lunch or drink outside!

I feel very fortunate I live close enough to come here whenever I want. I love the original shops, the many excellent restaurants, and entertainment weekly. It should be a must go to destination for anyone visiting Toronto.

We had our wedding in the Distillary District, it was also where we went on our first date. Such a beautiful spot in the city, always so many new things to do, good food, nice drinks. I'd recommend it to everyone.
