The Distillery District is one of my favourite places to hang out. It’s beautiful, and it’s a really impressive place to take people that are visiting the city. Trust me. They’ll be impressed. With some of the best preserved Victorian Industrial architecture in the US and Canada combined mixed, there’s really nothing else like it in Toronto.
The Real Estate Scoop
If you thinking about making the Distillery District your new home, than you should know that Distillery District real estate is all about condos. I mean, ALL, about condos. Condos with crazy amazing views of Toronto’s skyscraper scene and Lake Ontario. Houses don’t exist right within the Distillery. Instead, you’ll find that Distillery District real estate is all about sleek and modern condo buildings riddled between the old architecture, which make for a really unique lifestyle and place to call home. And many people love to.
Looking for a new Christmas tradition? You just have to check out the Toronto Christmas Market in the heart of the Distillery District. Running in the months of November and December, the Toronto Christmas Market holds the charm of an old world European Christmas Market while showcasing all of the unique businesses the Distillery District has to offer. And they’ve always got a really impressive tree set up and beautifully decorated.
Looking for an awesome Sunday afternoon out? With coffee in hand from any of the local cafes (mmm, I love Balzacs), you can check out tons of great design stores, art galleries, and bakeries, many with the post-and-beam finishes and amazing natural light that the neighbourhood buildings are known for.
Looking for a Saturday night out? There are some places in the Distillery District that you’ve just got to check out, starting with Cluny Bistro and El Catrin. The cheese board and accompanying wine list at Cluny are to die for (says me) and I really don’t know if I’ve ever had better guacamole in my life than on the patio at El Catrin.
See? I told you the Distillery District was impressive.
