“Jazz under the Summer Stars in Toronto's Yorkville”
Review of Yorkville Village

Yorkville Village
Ranked #49 of 554 things to do in Toronto
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 October 2017

I was fortunate enough to be in Toronto for the Jazz Festival this summer. Apparently the Jazz Fest moved from its original spot centered at Nathan Phillips Square to the chic neighbourhood of Yorkville. This gave it a very intimate welcoming feel - like Jazz should be. I thought it was way better than being under a big white tent when it had been down in that huge square. Streets were closed off and in place of cars were seats with stages. It was so much fun. The vibe was there. It had the energy and excitement you feel when you are part of a well-run, well-curated live event. The jazz artists were phenomenal. We experienced a whole mix of music. We had the rare opportunity to hear Aaron Neville up close and personal on the Yorkville Stage, Dave Restivo at the Heliconian, and the highlight for us was the incomparable closing night of the festival with a Tribute to Thelonius Monk called "4 by Monk by 4" at the Concert Hall - Kenny Barron, Benny Green, Cyrus Chestnut and Gerald Clayton. Wow!

If you're looking for fine dining and designer shops this is definitely the place to go. The restaurants are very upmarket, a lot have valet parking and are always very full. All of the shops are designer so are great if you're looking to part with a bit of cash. It's a very popular place for celebrities and the wealthier residents. It's also a nice place to just walk around, take in the sights and the atmosphere.

i was up there on friday for a walk and i saw two ferrari's, one austin martin and numerous mercs, all driven by pudgy balding old men. it was a combination of the super rich, tourists, and those wishing they were rich. a very interesting collection of humanity. well worth the diversion.

One of the things you may want to try is to buy ice cream (Gelato) from the store with the same name (Gelato) and sit on the man maid mini mountain and watch the fountains. Bird watching is another activity or just stroll and eat some thing at Hemingway(go to the roof top patio).

My wife and I toured through Yorkville, looking at the shops, restaurants and fancy cars that kept streaming by. Great places to stop for food at any time. Always worth a visit when in town.
