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.

“Nicely presented”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

It is a nice area to walk around and there are some shops and areas to have coffee but to be honest it tells little about the history. It is just really a historic area that has undergone a remodelling for craft shops.

“Historic District, restaurants & boutiques”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

This is another must do while in Toronto. Beautiful historic buildings restored to their former glory & then some. Cute & very different boutiques as well as bakeries & restaurants. Excellent washroom facilities for the tourists. We ate at the Tappo Wine Bar & Restaurant. Very yummy Italian food, and a cool old building to admire while your meal is being prepared.

“Take a camera”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

Fascinating to see what you can turn a distillery into without losing its historic character completely. Interesting place to visit with well preserved old buildings fitted out in different ways. Went on a dreary rainy morning but enjoyed popping in and out of the different shops. There are lots of quirky things to photograph when the rain stops.
