Yorkville is undergoing another renaissance, and it’s not surprising. It’s always been an evolving, vibrant, and historic part of Toronto.

The prestigious, chic neighbourhood encompassing Bloor-Yorkville began in the 1830s as residential village. By the 1960s, it had become the epicentre of Toronto’s hippie and bohemian culture (think Joni Mitchell and Neil Young), and then it transformed into the go-to area of the city.

Yorkville has it all: gourmet restaurants, high-end stores, elite hotels and spas. And did we mention celebrities? Yorkville is still the place to be seen.

Bloor-Yorkville has three museums and 10+ galleries. The area is brimming with culture. It’s also one of the most walkable areas in the city from which you can get anywhere via the easy access to Lines 1 and 2 on the Bloor-Yonge station (plus your pick of three other terminals less than 10 minutes apart).

And for those into health and wellness, Yorkville has probably the best spas, gyms and wellness centres in the city.
