Queen West



Queen West, and particularly the strip between University and Spadina avenues, is well-known as Toronto's hub for trendy fashions and young hipster crowds. Out of town youth eagerly flock to this part of Queen to hang out near the Much Music headquarters and to shop and eat their way through the big-name designer shops and cafes that line the street.

West Queen West, which lies west of Bathurst Street, draws a more alternative, artistic crowd and, while increasingly gentrified, it remains relatively untouched by large bands of visitors. Uber-trendy designer, vintage and decor shops as well as galleries and really good independent cafes dominate the streetscape here. This is a great part of the city to grab leisurely brunch in before spending the afternoon roaming the neighbourhood's bookstores, boutiques and taking a stroll through Trinity Bellwoods Park.
