Bloor West

Bloor West Village is a trendy place to hang out, shop or just buy your favorite European breakfast. However, it is not an area where you will find a lot of top fancy/schmancy brand name products, like in Yorkville for instance, but it will impress your friends with its everyday lifestyle, including mild nightlife and a great array of multi-cultural bars and restaurants.
Enjoy your stay in Bloor West Village!  

Bloor West Village

Bloor West Village is a Toronto neighborhood, bounded by Bloor Street West to the South, Jane Street to the West, Runnymede Road to the East and Annette Street to the North. BUT, Bloor West Village Business Improvement Area has a different boundary focusing more on businesses rather than residential areas, and therefore refers only to that section of Bloor Street from Jane to High Park.
See the official bounderies for Bloor West Village.
