Location: Queen Street West, between Bathurst Street and Gladstone Avenue.

Unique restaurants, boutiques and the largest concentration of art galleries in Toronto make West Queen West a vibrant, dynamic neighbourhood. The arrival of custom retailers, designers and artists has altered the face of the neighbourhood over the last decade. This funky, but welcoming area hums with culture and creativity. You’ll find an inspiring mix of original fashions, antiques and kitsch. An abundance of cafés and bistros act as an ideal lookout for some of the city’s best people watching. Attention-grabbing outfits, piercings and one-of-a-kind leather getups are sure to pass by and catch your eye.

The area is also home to beautiful Trinity-Bellwoods Park. There you’ll find interesting people, friendly dogs and organized drum circles that keep the park constantly buzzing with activity.

With its hip, artistic presence it’s no wonder this neighbourhood was named by Vogue magazine as one of the coolest neighbourhoods in the world.
