TORONTO NEIGHBOURHOODS - WEST QUEEN WEST

March 14, 2016 - Updated: March 15, 2016

 

In the late 1800s West Queen West emerged as a Pacific Railway Hub on the outskirts of the Village of Parkdale. This location was beyond the city limits and had a decidedly working class charm. Two of the oldest neighbourhood landmarks are the Drake Hotel and The Gladstone Hotel which are both situated on Queen Street West. These hotels have been dramatically restored and refurbished and today both hotels are prominent pillars in the revitalized West Queen West neighbourhood.

 

 

 

 

Torontonians have always known that the West Queen West neighbourhood is cool and hip and incredibly artsy. Now the whole world knows about West Queen West thanks to a Vogue article that identifies the West Queen West neighbourhood as the second coolest neighbourhood in the world.

 

 

 

 

Vogue writer Nick Remsen describes the neighbourhood as "a verifiable artery of indie patisseries, homegrown labels, and hidden-from-view galleries—hallmarks of hipness, if ever they existed." The online article mentions iconic hip neighbourhood landmarks including The Drake and the Gladstone hotels, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Soho House Toronto and Graffiti Alley.
