Known as a small village in a big city and BWV to locals, bustling Bloor West Village is roughly an 8-block strip offering over 400 bars, restaurants, shops, and services, including a lively nightlife scene. It’s a block from popular High Park, home to the High Park Zoo, an amphitheatre, and a nature centre. This jam-packed area is best explored by walking or biking, as parking is at a premium.
