Unless you really like being surrounded by douchbags stay away from the Entertainment District. It is filled with awful people and when the clubs close can be quite violent. Also stay away from King West.

Thank you for your feedback. The Toronto Entertainment District has undergone many positive changes in recent years. Intensified residential development, sustained commercial growth, and an increased number of large public events have all contributed positively to the evolution.

Our District is home to renowned attractions, major league sports, performing arts, prestige hotels, dynamic restaurants and much, much more. Visitors will continue to enjoy an unparalleled variety of outstanding cultural events as the Toronto Entertainment District evolves and progresses.

The Business Improvement Area, the Toronto Police Service and nightclub owners work together very closely finding ways to provide a safe, secure experience for all visitors. It is very encouraging that Toronto’s Entertainment District now offers a much more safe environment than comparable locales in large North American cities. Feedback is very important to us so please do continue to provide it.

I have not been downtown as much as I would like; however, as with any large metropolis, safety is in numbers. Disclaimer aside, Toronto honestly does have one of the most vibrant and multi - (cultural, historic, lingual) populations the world over. AND eveyone is friendly, to a point. Watch out for our two seasons - Winter and Construction!

Another great area. So much to see, especially during TIFF - Toronto International Film Festival. The place really comes alive then. Lots of great restaurants in the area.

In both good ways, and uneasy ways... but usually a good time on the weekends, you wouldn't know it was an Entertainment District during the weekdays, outside the area being home to many Entertainment Industry companies high in the office areas. Nice place to walk through during club nights, good night life, kind of dead during the day...
