This Toronto hotspot is strictly upper crust. One of Toronto’s most elegant shopping and dining areas, Bloor-Yorkville’s designer boutiques, antique shops and galleries are absolutely first class. The area features many small courtyards and alleyways, and a contemporary park located in the very heart of the neighbourhood. The park features a giant granite boulder, which brings the raw beauty of cottage country right into Toronto’s urban centre! It’s a great place to rest between shopping bouts.

Hailed as the “Mink Mile,” Bloor-Yorkville is home to high-end designers like Tiffany, Chanel, D&G and Hermès. But here you can also freshen up your wardrobe with unique fashions from the hottest Canadian designers, including Jeremy Lang, Hoax Couture, Izzy Camilleri and Nadya Toto.It’s the gleam of high-priced art, haute couture and fine dining that draws stars, fans and paparazzi here during the Toronto International Film Festival. No visit to Toronto is complete without a thorough exploration of this chic neighbourhood.
