Ossington: A Diverse Neighborhood

2012-03-14 3

Once a lonely strip littered with long-dead storefronts Ossington has quickly become the ‘it’ destination of Toronto. Tucked between Dundas and Queen, it is a stretch of neighborhood art, fashion, food and drink. Finally with its wide selection of trendy bars, Ossington Avenue gives an opportunity for unforgettable night life any night of the week.

A maelstrom of current fashion trends, stylish bars, unique restaurants, gyms and yoga studios, art galleries, theater and local businesses, all among homeowners and residences, Ossington Avenue has proven itself to be one of the most vibrant areas in Toronto. Unrivaled with being the latest and greatest destination for drinking and dining, one can also shop for the most current fashion trends or rummage for that one-of-a-kind vintage piece or secondhand book. Encounter freshly baked goods, European meat shops, and a DIY wine making emporium.

If that isn’t enough, one can find Canada’s contemporary artists showing in the finest galleries. So come down to this vibrant area and pull up a bar stool with the locals at Sweaty Betty’s, Dakota Tavern or the Crooked Star. Try your pallet at Foxley or Delux or revel with the weekend crowd at LeVack Block, Reposado or The Ossington.
