Ossington & West Queen West

The “Ossington strip” running between Dundas and Queen buzzes like nowhere else in the city. A vibrant mix of chic restaurants, funky coffee shops, cocktail bars, one-off retailers, and cultural venues make Ossington the place to be for the city’s cool kids. There’s eclectic music programming at the Painted Lady and Reposado, while impromptu drum circles pop up regularly in nearby Trinity-Bellwoods Park. 

Another one of Toronto’s top creative clusters and the city’s centre of artistic innovation, West Queen West’s Art + Design District between Bathurst Street and Gladstone Avenue is home to over 300 galleries, design houses, unique shops, restaurants, and boutique hotels. Landmarks like the Drake Hotel and the Great Hall anchor a vibrant area music ecosystem. Immediately to the south, Liberty Village is home to some of Toronto’s leading record companies and live event promoters.
