WELCOME TO YORKVILLE
Known for its high-end shopping, upscale restaurants, 5-star hotels, and close proximity to Toronto’s city.
Yorkville is a one-of-kind neighborhood that offers its residents the rare opportunity to walk through tree-lined streets populated with Victorian while being mere steps away from some of Toronto’s finest dining and most luxurious shops. Residents are not limited to expensive dining or shops, as Yorkville also contains many art galleries, fitness studios, and boutique cafes. The subway line runs through the heart of the neighborhood, conveniently connecting Yorkville to rest of Toronto. Yorkville’s beauty and avant-garde means it is the neighborhood for anyone with an aspirational lifestyle.

PEOPLE AND LIFESTYLE
The prices of real estate in Yorkville lend the neighborhood towards more seasoned professionals, many who are settling down with their families, or the retired individual looking to enjoy the fruits of a successful career in a convenient but relaxing community (during Toronto’s lovely summer months, and escape for the sometimes less than friendly winter season!).
Although Yorkville’s homes and residential condos are tailored for high-income earners, the neighborhood offers something that can suit a variety of individuals needs. Whether you are a healthy lifestyle aficionado who enjoys or someone who regularly grabs drinks with friends or clients at an outdoor patio, Yorkville offers various drinking spots, fitness studios, and health food stores to suit everyone’s needs.
PARKS AND NATURE
The Village of Yorkville Park, which runs along Cumberland Street, is filled with gardens, tables walkways – a truly urban public space. This beautiful park is a gem, heavily used by Toronto residents and visitors alike. The park also plays host to a variety of exciting events such as the Bloor-Yorkville Holiday Magic Tree Lighting in November, Icefest in February, Music in the Park over the summer months, and much more.
With so many stylish hotels and wealthy residents, it is no surprise that there are plenty of fine-dining venues sprinkled around Yorkville. Both Joso’s and Sotto Sotto are famous for their high-end cuisines and play a host to many celebrities. Additionally, Cafe Boulud at the Four Seasons is a great stop for some French cuisine slow-cooked to excellence.
If you’re looking for a more casual lighter meal, you can stop for a quick treat at renowned bakery Sorelle Co.or Bar Reyna for some snacks.
After sampling one of Yorkville’s fine dining venues, head over to one of its posh nightclubs such as Amber, and sip on their in-house made cocktails, while listening to house music by a live DJ. During the summer nights head over to Amber’s rooftop or stroll over to Kasamoto for some great scenery. If nightclubs are not your thing, enjoy your night out instead by heading over to the more laid-back D-Bar and choose from a variety of specialty craft cocktails - all in a setting that reflects the glamour of Yorkville.
Plenty of luxurious hotels are interspersed throughout Yorkville. The Four Seasons welcomes visitors with spacious modern designs and contains various exceptional dining options. Close by, Hazelton Hotel –which remains one of the city’s iconic landmarks – combines chic, glamour, and beauty into one luxurious stay. The Hazelton is the only Toronto hotel to be a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, which is a worldwide alliance of independent luxury hotels.
Both Yorkville and the adjacent Bloor Street contain plenty of shopping, offering a variety of high-end sophisticated brands such as Hermes and Luis Vuitton, and even the hottest streetwear brands such as Off-White. Additionally, stylish jewelry stores, like Cartier and Tiffany & Co. are also close-by. The plethora of fine shops means that both locals and tourists can easily spend all day browsing through the area. And if luxury stores are not quite your flavor, a wider selection of stores at the Toronto Eaton Centre is only a short subway or taxi ride away.
