Owner description: The Distillery District is an internationally acclaimed village of brick-lined streets and dozens of vibrantly restored Victorian Industrial buildings. It’s one of Ontario’s hottest tourist attractions and home to live theatres, galleries, fashion, design and jewelry boutiques, unique cafes and award-winning restaurants. It’s all completely closed to traffic and just a few minutes walk from downtown Toronto.

Very nicely renovated area of the city, but one of the more pricey areas. It felt a little overdone for our taste, but worth seeing.

My first visit here was in the spring last year. We have been back a dozen times since then. I love the galleries and the cheese in the area. We had recent occasion to go to a wedding in the District and came down early to have some oysters at the local bar. I hope to spend more time here in the future.

A terrific place to spend an afternoon shopping and dining. Always busy always fun. Lots of great artists and craftspeople whose work is first-rate. There are a number of super restaurants in the District and a lively atmosphere all around.

Atmosphere varies depending upon the time of day you are there. Good for lunch and/or dinner. Summer evenings are great.
