Time Out a popular global website has named Ossington Avenue the 14th coolest street in the world. Here is a snippet of what the Time Out writers had to say: Bustling Ossington is the place to go in Toronto for some of the city’s best restaurants, live music nearly every night of the week, and the kind of nights out that call for leather jackets, not heels. The most noteworthy stretch is between Dundas and Queen Street West: there you can parade the street and shop for everything from carefully selected vintage to garms by rising Canadian designers.
Hey, all of this is true. If you are a Torontonian and you have not explored the new Ossington Avenue recently then you are really missing out on a very cool vibe and some incredible food. Set in the wildly popular Trinity Bellwoods neighbourhood Ossington Avenue has been totally gentrified from years past but retains a cool urban grittiness thanks to the unassuming heritage buildings that line this retail corridor bisected with laneways and colourful wall mural art in the nooks and crannies. This neighbourhood is an ecosystem and it is alive with energy. Congratulations Ossignton Avenue even if you are having too much fun to notice your world wide acclaim.
