The Distillery District, Toronto

Historic Walking Area · Neighborhood
Once home to the British Empire's biggest producer of spirits, The Distillery District now represents one of Toronto's top tourist hubs, packed with shops and bars housed inside preserved Victorian-era buildings. This ten-street quarter contains dozens of old warehouses converted into modern art galleries, artist workshops, trendy eateries, and upscale boutiques. A popular gathering place for both tourists and locals, the neighborhood is especially crowded on weekends, when newlyweds come to pose in front of the area's iconic redbrick buildings. Browse the website for upcoming events, which include live jazz performances, food festivals, and art exhibits. The Distillery District is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , world travel planner Edition.
