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.

It is one of the must to see attractions in the winter during the Holidays. There is all what you want to do; shopping, drinking, eating and entertainment.

This is a great place in the summer, but with the exception of Friday and Saturday, don't expect crowds in the winter. It can get pretty gloomy any other day. However, when it's hopping it's the best place to be. Good food and drink and...More

I just love the historic charm of the distillery district. There's great shops and restaurants and lots of photo opportunities. My favourites are Desigual and El Catrin. Be sure to come for the Christmas market, it's amazing.

flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to

Parking is a bit of a challenge anytime but during the week the south west parking lots are a good place to start . There is some street parking North and east of the east entrance but usually very scarce.

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
