From University Avenue west along Queen Street is known locally as Queen West, is the epitome of cool for shopping for those interested in boutique design, vintage furniture and clothing and an almost overwhelming number of amazing dining options.
There are hundreds of stores but here are a few favourites.
StyleGarage – Creative furniture and art spice up any space
Fluvog Shoes – Wander in to see their weird shoes and to see the Upside Down Room
Doc’s Motor Cycles – Don’t be scared off by the mannequin out front. It’s all leather on the main floor but wander upstairs to step into a museum of the most eclectic collection of everything from human skulls to melted telephones and an antique pinball machine (bring a few quarters).
Floorplay – Crazy socks; fun to look at, great to buy for yourself or a souvenir
Nadege – Imagine drinking a hot chocolate from the movie Chocolat with a handmade marshmallow or macaroon.
Fresh – The ultimate vegetarian and vegan foods.
Trinity Bellwoods Park – Commune with nature while you search for the White Squirrel to bring you luck.
The Drake Hotel - If you haven’t run out of energy, a few blocks further down for evening entertainment.
The Gladstone Hotel – Keep walking to see the operational Antique Elevator and enjoy the ever-changing art shows on each floor of the hotel – for free.
