Move over Yorkville — here comes King West. It’s no surprise that this neighbourhood has become so popular with young professionals when you consider the sheer number of restaurants and pubs in the area, and the fact that the Entertainment District is just next door. For those who manage to land in this trendy neighbourhood — there’s no place they’d rather be.
From 8 Mercers Street, you’re just steps from fantastic restaurants — literally. There’s Milagro across the street for Mexican food, turn the corner onto King and you have Aroma Fine Indian Cuisine, Maki My Way for Japanese, Fred's Not Here for surf and turf, King Street Social Kitchen & Bar for an eclectic menu — all within a 2 minute walk. Head west, and indecision might stop you in your tracks, as there are dozens of 5 star restaurants.
Gone are the days of $20 parking and packed streetcars on game days, because sports fans can reach the Rogers Centre on foot in less than 10 minutes, and Scotiabank Arena in less than 20. After a thrilling victory — or devastating defeat — there are countless pubs and clubs awaiting you; C’est What?, The Loose Moose, The Porch, The Office Pub and Town Crier, to name a few.
If sports and nightlife aren’t your thing, there’s Princess of Wales Theatre and Royal Alexandra Theatre for musicals and plays, or The Second City Toronto for stand-up comedy. You can do your best impression of a tourist and visit the CN Tower, Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada, and Harbourfront Centre. Those who are athletically inclined have an array of activities at lakeside parks in the area, or can go for a scenic jog on the Martin Goodman Trail.
Dust off those walking shoes, because there’s no reason to ever run errands in a vehicle again — boasting a 100 Walk Score, 8 Mercer Street is as walkable as they come. Public transit riders also have an excellent location; there are east and westbound streetcars just around the corner on King, allowing for quick connections to St Andrew for subway service.
Shocking as it may be, even car owners have a great starting point; drivers can reach the Gardiner Expressway in a hurry by heading south on Spadina for the nearest on-ramp.
