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.

One of my favorite places to go for dinner, the restaurant and neatly tucked away and there a nice selection to choose from.

I love walking through this historic district. The architecture is phenominal and you are always bound to find something new and interesting in the shops and galleries. Expand your perspective on the world by taking a walk through the galleries. My favourite is the Engine Gallery.
For some great shopping pop into Lileo.
The Vintage Gardener is also a delight for the senses.

It is especially wonderful at Christmas, when they have their magnificant tree decorated. It's a great place to find unique presents, had a nice lunch, try on some funky clothes, look at some amazing work done by artists. Very neat.

Nice to visit during the day. No so much at night as many swimming in Adult beverages

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.
