The Best of Queen West
Sunday, March 26, 2017

Art

Art galleries explore local and international talent. Start at MOCCA then head west, taking in the shop front galleries along the street. A small diversion up Ossington will take you to TWP, Angell Gallery and more. Heading further west there’s Katharine Mulherin Contemporary Art Projects, and the local artistry found at Gallery 1313. Had enough? We could go further… Because as you know, when it comes to Art, West is Best.

Culture

Queen West is a hive of creativity and with places like the Japanese Paper Shop and its workshops, the Knit Café and The Workroom’s sewing machine heaven you too can express yourself. Visit the Farmer’s Market in Liberty Village, and lounge in the sun at Trinity Bellwoods Park. Learn, share, do, meet Queen Street style!

Fare

From late night poutine, to the family brunches at the Gladstone Hotel, sushi at The Drake, oysters at Fishbar, late night drinks at the Beaver, or a mid-week Pho on Ossington, this end of Queen West is a taste-test of the best with the only outcome being pure and utter delight.

Style

With indie boutiques setting up shop further and further west, here’s where you find everything from the trendy, to the cult, to the most original. Real mod boys will set their sights on Oliver Spencer and Ben Sherman, but others will thumbs-up the local boutiques like Relic and the Future of Frances Watson. For those who like retro handbags and the vintage gems of Queen Street, your style can be found in the racks of the neighbourhood’s many vintage shops.
