Downtown Yonge in detail

Planning Tips

Top Tips

North of College, Yonge St gets sketchy, especially in the evening with a mix of late-night partyers and down-and-out folks. Consider cabbing it if you’re traveling alone or with kids.

Local Experiences

  • Drag queens Dirty Bingo at O’Grady’s and Sunday Drag Brunch at Glad Day are the most popular of the many drag-related events in the Village. (Arrive early!)
  • Outdoor eats In the warmer months, join office workers and students for lunch at Fresh Wednesdays in front of City Hall or the Outdoor Eateries near Ryerson U.
  • Shopping Instead of hitting the international chains in the Eaton Centre, do as locals do and hit the neighborhood shops, like Dead Dog Records and BMV.
