West of Spadina to Howland Ave, Bloor St is especially urban. Four ‘parkettes’ – a corner here, a couple of benches there – provide space to sit and take it all in. All have trees, flowers and custom furnishings made from salvaged materials. Some even have large-scale murals. A delight.
- Drinking In Yorkville, the Oxley is the go-to spot for after-work drinks.
- Shopping Join the well-heeled on Yorkville Ave, a couple of blocks from the Mink Mile, to shop for luxury items at well-respected boutiques such as Pink Tartan.
- Eating Though sushi restaurants are a dime a dozen in The Annex, U of T students keep Sushi on Bloor packed most nights.
