Distillery District

Down in the East End of Toronto there is an interesting shopping and entertainment area called the Distillery District. A series of buildings from the old Gooderham & Worts Distillery have been restored and repurposed for craftspeople, artists and performers. The buildings were designated as a heritage site, but rather than restoring them as a museum, the buildings have been restored and converted to stores, restaurants, pubs, artists studios, and performances venues. As you wander around the district you can find lot of interesting shops, places to eat and drink and information about the history of the buildings. Most of the buildings have artifacts from the original distillery scattered about. The overall affect is interesting and makes a great place to explore while visiting Toronto.

While I was there I enjoyed taking some pictures and I've included a few here.
