The Distillery district has exploded onto the Toronto map as a major centre for the city's theatre and live culture scene. The area boasts a number of performance venues and is the official home of many of Toronto's acclaimed small theatre companies.
Visitors can wander freely through the brick-laid, pedestrian-only streets, and they can explore the art studios and gallery spaces that fill the former Gooderham & Worts buildings. A burgeoning restaurant industry and the local microbrewery attract foodies to the area, while the thriving cultural production scene makes the Distillery district a stronghold of information (and important destination) for anyone interested in the what's-what of the Toronto art world.
The Distillery district is framed by to the west by Parliament Street and to the north by Mill Street. It is accessible by the King streetcar or Parliament bus No. 65A.
A microbrewery and range of fine dining options make the Distillery a popular nighttime destination.
Before or after you meander through the Distillery, head to St. Lawrence Market to pick (and sample) your way through two floors of artisanal cheeses, fresh baked breads and barrels brimming with beautiful produce. The market is an ideal site to gather the makings of a picnic to bring with you to the waterfront (which is, incidentally, just blocks away).
