As Queen West continues to grow and evolve, the neighbourhood still maintains its trendy artistic vibes. The streets are filled with creativity and lined with boutique shops, niche retailers, and art galleries that collectively attract like-minded people and businesses.
As one of Toronto’s highly trafficked shopping districts, it combines independent shops with big-box retailers.
The dining experience surrounding Queen West is diverse in terms of culture and style and fortunately, most of the restaurants are less expensive than those found a block south on King St.
With a mixture of residential housing and modern condominium buildings, the area holds a more genuine neighbourhood feel. Because of this, the demographics vary among students, working professionals, young families and seniors.
Noteworthy landmarks include: The Drake Hotel, The Gladstone Hotel, Trinity Bellwoods Park, Soho House, Graffiti Alley
