King West, also known as the Entertainment district, is home to those with an urban ‘on the go’ lifestyle. Surrounded by high end retail stores, restaurants and some of the top advertising firms in the city, King West is a community packed with opportunity and excitement. The area roughly bordered by Spadina, Front, Adelaide and Bathurst has undergone an extensive transformation from what was previously an industrial factory land to one of the most desirable landmark locations in Toronto real estate.
Adding to it’s historical splendor, buildings like the famous Wheat Sheaf Tavern at Bathurst and King have been in business since 1849. Upscale restaurants such as Buca and Blowfish also located on King West attract the residents of this neighborly community. A night on the town is a one stop shop in this area; go for dinner and a movie at the Tiff Bell Lightbox or a production at one of the Mirvish theaters, both just minutes from King West. Shake your tail feather at Cheval or King West’s newest addition Bloke & 4th, only to name a few of the many clubs in this lively district.
