vintage stores, concept stores and bohemien vibe? Meet Parkdale!
The Pardale Village neighbourhood in Toronto is one of the hipster disctricts the city has to offer. A district where everyone and everything lives alongside each other and it’s extremely multicultural. Lots of youngsters live there because of the low rent and there are lots of vintage living stores and fashion stores. The part at Queen West Str also has several great restaurants and (cocktail) bars. Are you more into somewhat alternative and upcoming districts you’ll definitely want to stop by during your city trip to Toronto. The best part of this area is near Queen Street West when you go underneath the tracks between Gladstone and Dufferin. Which hotspots in Parkdale, Toronto you definitely don’t want to miss out on? Start with a coffee at Capital Espresso, go on a shopping spree at the vintage stores and the Designer Market and end your afternoon with some tacos at Grand Electric. Have fun in Parkdale Village!

Toronto Travel Tips
>> THIS IS HOW YOU’LL GET THERE: Jet Airways offers daily flights from Amsterdam to Toronto from € 402,-. You’re there in a little over 8 hours! During my last trip I flew in their Première Class and the food was honestly so good. Absolutely recommended if you love Indian food like me!
>> THIS IS WHERE YOU’LL STAY: Toronto has several nice neighbourhoods where you can stay, but if you’re more into the trendy areas the district around Queen Street West and Ossington Ave is recommended.
– Drake Hotel: without a doubt the most trendy hotel in Toronto. With a mere 19 rooms and an amazing rooftop bar where you can have a drink after a day in the city.
Shangri-La: if the budget isn’t an issue then staying in the Shangri-La can’t go wrong. Even if it’s only because they have a Momofuku restaurant here!
