In both good ways, and uneasy ways... but usually a good time on the weekends, you wouldn't know it was an Entertainment District during the weekdays, outside the area being home to many Entertainment Industry companies high in the office areas. Nice place to walk...More

This neighbourhood used to be where all the hip clubs were. At first they were all places you had to hear about from someone in the know. Then, a number of huge clubs attempting to maintain the illusion of exclusivity while hundreds of suburban kids...More

If you are looking for good restaurants, bars, clubs or lounges, do your research, there are much better places in the city than those found in the "Entertainment District"

If you have tickets to a play or a concert it's worth the trip. For dinner or lunch, I would venture a little north of King St for better restaurants. St. Patrick subway stop only 1 short block away. I love live theatre & concerts....More

Lively, attractive; human-scale mix of old and new buildings; huge range of places to eat, drink, go to concerts or the theatre, or just people-watch. Its days may be numbered; condo towers are encroaching.

Lots of theatre, clubs, restaurants and movie theatres. Safe to walk around late, walking distance from most downtown hotels

There has never been an entertainment district that has less to offer to singles than that of Down Town Toronto: http://livinginthedeadcity.weebly.com/1/post/2012/03/lack-of-bar-culture.html

Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner
Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the
outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is
celebrated by a number of monuments and museums,
giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier
destination for modern art, people here stroll through
the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy
the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe
