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.

We did a walking tour (self-guided) around the city, at the suggestion of our concierge, and added this lovely area, even though it was a bit of a schlep from downtown. It's a great restored area, thick with art, fashion, lovely shops, and quaint restaurants....More

I have been to the Distillery District many times. It is a collection of cafes, restaurants, and shops located in downtown Toronto. It is the largest collection of Victoria era architecture in North America. It is housed in the former Gooderman and Worts Distillery. We...More

We toured the area on foot -- very easy -- and had a wonderful meal at Mill Street Brewery/Restaurant. Will absolutely go again next time we're in Toronto!

This is Toronto's answer to Chelsea/Meatpacking district in NYC. Worth spending some time for a cool vibe and a taste of the real Toronto. There is something for everyone in the varied but compact little district.

Perfect for a walk, very well maintained area. A number of good restaurants and pubs, but also shops, studios and art galleries. Even if in the city for short time, it deserves a few hours for enjoyment

Nostalgic area with quaint shops and an amazing brewery. Mill St. Brewery, John Fluevog and Vom Fass are my favourite places to visit. Restaurant and bakery sells great quality food. Must visit Vom Fass for oils and seasonings.

If it's art galleries you want, Queen West might be a better bet. It's a stretch of Queen St. west of downtown. TripAdvisor won't let me post a link, but google "Queen West galleries" for what's happening at the moment... More
