Queen Street West and West Queen West
A trendy strip with boutiques, restaurants, bars and live music venues. The bustle is between University and Spadina avenues, where a variety of recognizable international brands have set up shop, but the stretch west of Bathurst Street, dubbed West Queen West, is lined with fashion, decor and retro shops. Head still west of that and you'll find a cluster of chic cafés, eateries and avant-garde art galleries. Walk west along Queen from Osgoode station or take the westbound Queen streetcar.
