Go to experience the beautifully renovated brick buildings, yummy treats and locally made arts and wares.
I have walked around the distillery district a few times and always enjoy myself. From Mill St brewery for beer and lunch to the place that makes it's own saki to the shops etc.a nice time will be had.
This is one of the “must visit” places if you are in Toronto. The area offers unique shopping, dining and drinking experience.
What a lovely little place! Wound away a couple of hours and a decent view back on the city. Food, drink and a bit of shopping as well
We didn't know what to expect from it, but it turned out to be a pretty cool place. The idea is great, they renovated the interior of the buildings while left outer walls in the original, old brick look and turned the whole district into a great hanging place with shops, restaurants, events etc. It's not just a tourist attraction, locals go there all the time. There are lots of cool monuments/pieces of art on the property which are great for taking pictures. The prices are a bit higher, as the place is very popular but you should definitely check it out.
This district is stunning!! What a wonderful historical concept and how surprising to find this it downtown Toronto! Plus, we have found good quality stores instead of touristic stores.
If you stop there, you won't regret it! Especially before Christmas when they fill the place with littles wooden houses and decorations. They say that the last Saturday before Christmas, you have to wait three hours to get in the district.
Come often for the variety of art shows, installations, Christmas Market, boutiques, coffee shops, and ambiance of the historic distillery District complete with a beautiful working Distillery and sampling Bar at The Spirit of York.
A stroll through the DD is like a step back in time...except things are clean and safe. The brick streets and restored warehouses, factories and distilleries make for an back drop used in many movie sets. Such a great place to stroll, shop, have a drink, coffee or great meal from the numerous class establishments.
Was a nove place to visit. Very old buildings. The major downfall is that it is a tourist attraction so the prices for everything are through the roof.
derwehis used to be a unique site in Toronto some 15 years ago. A derelict industrial zone that stood abandoned for decades became home to independent art galleries and small startup businesses. They restored the old buildings, cleaned up the mess and attracted local visitors. Unfortunately, they also attracted big out-of-the-box businesses and condo developers who moved in and conpletely destroyed its character. So sad.
Great place for a day or evening. Lots of restaurants, interesting shops, special events, theatre and artisans. Fabulous Christmas Market!
