The Distillery District is probably my favorite neighborhood in Toronto. What was a (surprise!) distillery that fell into disuse and years of neglect is now a bustling neighborhood of shops and galleries and restaurants and patios patios patios. The brick buildings and streets contrast beautifully with soaring glass condos, creating a truly unique space. I nearly lived in one of the condos but that arrangement fell through, which is probably for the best
since the shopping is pretty dangerous since the neighborhood is kind of out of the way. Still, it’s an easy 20 minute walk from my place and perfect for a summer Sunday afternoon date.
Occasionally creepy modern art sculptures pop out between the brick buildings.
Dusk under El Catrin’s twinkle lights was particularly charming with a belly full of mezcal and guacamole.
