Must-Experience Hot Spots

Yorkville Murals

Yorkville is quickly becoming a hotbed of thought-provoking public art, thanks in no small part to this annual, eight-day cultural event, which bills itself as "a celebration of contemporary muralism." Expect plenty in the way of activations: art installations, artist convos, panel discussions, film screenings and more.

Toronto Pride

This month-long celebration of Toronto's diverse 2SLGBTQ+ community — think headliner performances, street fairs, pool parties, drag shows, and more — ends in a blowout of a festival weekend each June. Events are centered around Bloor Street and the nearby Church-Wellesley neighborhood, which holds the banner as Toronto's Gay Village.

Exploring Yorkville


Wander Bloor Street, the epicentre of Toronto fashion, and you'll pass Hermès, Chanel and Balenciaga storefronts, as well as Toronto’s trademark high-end department store, Holt Renfrew. At Yorkville Village, you'll find outposts of Canadian labels — some exclusive to Toronto — and global designers intermingling with trendy eateries, art installations and pop-up boutiques.


Whether you're moved by pop art, photography or contemporary work, the world-class galleries that dot Yorkville hold some of Canada’s biggest names in the art world and serve as Toronto's exhibition hub. Browse Taglialatella Gallery, W Toronto’s local art curator partner designing the artwork that adorns the hotel and guestrooms.


Near the hotel you'll find the Royal Ontario Museum, with its Daniel Liebskind-designed crystal structure affixed to the heritage 1914 stone façade. A true national landmark, the museum houses more than 13 million artworks, cultural artifacts and natural specimens. After exploring the ROM, wander over to the Gardiner Museum, a celebration of clay and ceramics in all their forms.
