the coolest neighbourhood in the world

Imagine - Vogue magazine does an article on the 15 coolest neighbourhoods in the world - Canal St. Martin in Paris, north Brooklyn in NYC - and West Queen West in Toronto, near where my kids and arty friends (of course) live. I've never even heard of Bicyclette or Soho House - but then I live in the deeply uncool east end. Except - it's not.

Toronto is currently enjoying newfound prominence—and desirability—amongst globe-trotting tastemakers. Queen Street West is a verifiable artery of indie patisseries, homegrown labels, and hidden-from-view galleries—hallmarks of hipness, if ever they existed. It’s also the home of the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, well-established “art” hotels The Drake and the Gladstone, and the charming Bicyclette, a local clothing boutique and lifestyle brand whose owners love “glitter, DIY projects, treasure hunts and details.” Soho House Toronto is nearby, as is Graffiti Alley, a block where street art is both 100 percent legal and lauded.
