Things To Do In Midtown Toronto (Part 1)

Posted on
Midtown Toronto, more specifically the area of Yonge and Eglinton is a bustling and hip area surrounded by countless restaurants, coffee shops, and stores. It’s earned the nickname ‘Yonge and Eligible’ for the young professionals that are drawn here, yet it’s often described as lacking the culture and personality other parts of the city are known for.

However, a close look reveals the area is filled with places worth visiting, and there’s never a shortage of things to do.

Below are some of our favourite spots midtown Toronto, we hope you get the chance to explore soon!

Best Theatre

Who doesn’t love a good movie? Nothing beats the cozy atmosphere at the Regent Theatre which has been around since 1927. They have renovated seating, and screen independent and foreign films. If you’re looking for a nice evening out that’s an enjoyable experience, this is the place to be.

Kid Friendly Activities

If you’re looking for a way to entertain the kiddos, Sky Zone is perfect. It’s an indoor trampoline park featuring freestyle bouncing, dodgeball, and even fitness programs. The perfect way to let off steam (for kids and grown-ups).

Coffee

We could probably do a whole post on this topic, but one of our favourite independent cafe’s is Crosstown Coffee Bar. Located on Highbourne and Eglinton, it has a relaxing vibe and exceptionally friendly staff. They have great coffee and treats, making it the perfect spot for an afternoon pick-me-up.

Exercise Class

If you love a heart pumping workout, then you have to get into a spin class at Rocket Cycle. It’s a boutique spinning studio offering the most advanced equipment and great instructors. There’s a reason their classes are considered addictive.

Looking to stretch and relax? Moksha Yoga offers a broad range of classes, making it the perfect spot regardless of where you’re at in your yoga practice.

Ice Cream

If you have a sweet tooth then you must check out Hotel Gelato to hit the spot. They make all of their gelato in house and their menu home to traditional flavours like chocolate, vanilla, and lemon. Not to be missed are the more inventive flavours like sponge toffee and avocado.

It’s safe to say that there are countless ways to enjoy and explore midtown Toronto. The area includes several high-rise office buildings, the busy Eglinton Station, and a large mall-office complex. It’s no wonder the area is seeing an influx of young urban professional singles and families. We love it and hope you do too!Look out for part 2 in this series where we look into even more things to do midtown.

  1. Sports Question: Which Midtown Pub is Showing Blue Jays v Orioles?

    The Jays did it! After losing those important games against Baltimore last week and then getting beat against the new Eastern champs, Red Sox in the first of three end of season games, Toronto somehow clawed back the top wildcard position to enter a winner-takes-all super-game back up here in Hogtown.

    This could be the Jays last game of the 2015/16 campaign or (as the Kramer’s gang believe) could be the start of some big games against Texas. Either way, Kramer’s bar and grill will be putting all our energies into supporting the boys in blue which means no trivia.

    Apologies to all our loyal and dedicated trivia players. We hope you don’t mind too much that our Jays-mad locals would be too distracted by the game that could take us to the playoffs.

    Trivia will be back again at its normal slot after Tuesday. In the meantime, GO JAYS GO!
