Cobblestone streets, charming brick buildings and striking Victorian architecture. This is the Distillery District: a snapshot in time and one of Toronto's coolest neighbourhoods. Designated in 1988 as a National Historic Site of Canada, the Distillery District saw redevelopment in the early 2000s and is now a beautifully restored, pedestrian-only 13 acre neighbourhood full of boutique retail stores, more than a dozen art galleries, artisan shops, theatres, bars and gourmet restaurants.
In the 1800s, the Gooderham and Worts Distillery was the largest distillery in the British Empire, producing more than 2 million gallons of whiskey in its prime. In recent years the beautiful brick Gooderham and Worts buildings were restored and converted to The Distillery - a happening hub of retail, arts and culture. Annual cultural events, festivals and craft shows draw in even more visitors than usual to the lively Distillery District.
Though it's the biggest and most well preserved collection of Victorian industrial architecture in North America, a number of glistening new condo buildings aesthetically fuse the old and the new worlds, making this hip and historic Distillery District a fantastic place to call home. It's also just a 35-minute walk to the downtown core.
Sample craft beers at the Mill St Brewpub, devour the artisanal chocolate at SOMA, grab your morning java at Balzac's, and turn your weekly grocery shop into a gourmet culinary journey with the famous St Lawrence Market a short walk to the west.
