About Distillery District
The Distillery is built around one of the most historic locations in Canada. In the late 1860's, The Distillery District was home to the Gooderham and Worsts Distillery which at the time was one of the largest Distillers in North America. By 1990 all distilling operations had ceased, leaving a huge re development opportunity with the existing industrial buildings which had years earlier been designated as a national historic site. By 2003 The Distillery had been redeveloped as a pedestrian only district that restricted restaurant chains from operating within its boundary adding to its unique industrial charm.
The majority of the historic brick industrial buildings are occupied with boutiques, art galleries, restaurants, jewellery stores, cafés, and coffeehouses, including a well-known microbrewery, the Mill Street Brewery. The upper floors of a number of buildings have been leased to artists as studio spaces and to office tenants with a "creative focus". A new theatre, the Young Centre for the Performing Arts, has opened on the site and serves as the home of the Soulpepper Theatre Company and the drama productions of nearby George Brown College. There are plans to develop residential condominiums, offices, and more retail space on the vacant lands that surround the district. Don't miss the Christmas Market in December that draws thousands of people to see Santa, ride on the Ferris wheel and taste holiday food from a variety of vendors.
The redevelopment of this area quickly made it a notable destination for local visitors and tourists alike and quickly became one of the cities hottest communities to live, work & play!
