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.

Reviewed November 5, 2012

Our friend had a booth at a recent Art Show so we took the opportunity to support him and to enjoy the art and stores in that historic venue.

“Lots of charm”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Love visiting this area of Toronto. Always make time to catch a play at the Salt Pepper Theatre. A fun place to visit, but watch where you park your car. Parking signage is not too clear.

“Toronro"s Distillery District.”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

A cluster of converted distillery and warehous buildings dating to the late nineteenth cectury. All connected by cobble stone lanes and alleys.
Home to a number of restaurants, eclectic shops, and galleries.
The area is host to several mid sized to small festivals, events and exhibitions.
Busy during fair weather, quiet through the cold months.
The area is growing in popularity, and is also the site of several existing and new condo buildings, whch appear to range from basic to upscale.Sits adjacent to the very large lower Donlands neighbourhood development project.
Worth a visit for a few hours as a tourist or regular visits from locals.

“Very cool experience”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

I stopped by here for a quick visit and I was pretty impressed by the cool vibe that I got from the district. Lots to look at and trendy shops/restaurants/coffee houses. This would be a great place to head out on a saturday night to have a few drinks and chill out in a uniqur atmosphere.

“Good for 'just looking'.”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

A good morning's visit. There are a number of decent food outlets, usually based around fresh, local ingredients. The specialist craft shops are interesting but predictably expensive. Don't go on a Monday as some of the units are closed ( although it will be quieter)
