Distillery Historic District

Toronto's Distillery Historic District comprises more than 40 heritage buildings and holds the largest collection of Victorian era industrial architecture in North America. Red brick is everywhere, including the streets themselves.

As you wander along the street in the Distillery Historic District, you’ll notice many of the buildings are occupied with unique boutiques, art galleries, restaurants, jewelery stores, cafés and coffeehouses. One of the more popular attractions is Mill Street Brewery, which creates such tasty beers as pilsner and stout – a perfect spot to stop and rest your feet. The upper floors of a number of buildings house artist studios and a variety of other creative businesses. Also here is the Young Centre for the Performing Arts, which hosts plays by the Soulpepper Theatre Company and George Brown College.

Throughout the year, the Distillery Historic District is the site of a number of festivals, including a blues festival, a jazz festival, and an outdoor art exhibition. Come Sundays in summer for the farmers' market.

Practical Info

The Distillery Historic District sits just east of downtown Toronto, along the lakefront. You can get here by streetcar, subway, or bus. Allow yourself an afternoon to explore the area, ducking in and out of the shops, and maybe have a pint at Mill Street Brewery.
