Distillery District

Once home to the largest distillery in the British Empire, Toronto's restored Distillery District features the continent's best-preserved collection of Victorian Industrial Architecture. It's a stunning backdrop for the local restaurants, design stores, cafes and art galleries; most of which feature post and beam finishes, amazing natural light and expansive ceilings. Don't miss the Case Goods Warehouse, home to local artist studios, custom jewellery, crafts and workshops.

Coming soon in the Talk! forums.
