Once home to the British Empire's biggest producer of spirits, Distillery Historic 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. Distillery Historic District is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , world travel planner Edition.

Nice and lively outdoors, many bars and restaurants concentrated in this area. Clothing and decor shops too( there’s also a candle store). Steep but interesting and great food and drinks. Lights and sculptures outdoors lend it more charm and appeal. Lively place to even go for a late evening stroll; we went on Christmas Day when everywhere else would be shut but this place still had crowds and a festive environment despite the closed stores and eateries. Great place to take pictures too
I have visited this place recently(Dec) It really decorated very beautiful and the Christmas lights and the big decorated tree looks beautiful All the inside stores are open, open food counters are there. so many places inside to take photos. Love lock where you name your loved one and lock it there Its great to visit although its not so fun but I think this winter and holiday season makes it like wonderland They have some tickets as of now like on Tuesday to Thursday its free to all Friday to Sunday its free till 4pm. 4pm onwards you need ticket to enter. You can book ticket online Monday it is closed
This place was recommended to us as part of our visit to Toronto. And I have to say it did not disappoint. It was a little bit quiet due to Covid but there is a great selection of fantastic bars and restaurants. The whole place looks amazing and feels special to walk around.
When I was browsing pictures of this area in Google, it looked exciting. In fact - it was pretty, but nothing wow. Nice area to spend a time with family, even though we had a horrible experience in a restaurant which I have already shared my feedback about. My advise - visit this area before New Year and during evening time - it becomes really lovely when it's dark.
I visited the district for the winter village festival 2021. Fell in love with the place and the lighting. The Christmas Tree looked so beautiful. I also loved the market. I bought some amazing stuff from the village market., it felt so good visiting the place after the pandemic.
