7 Notable Toronto Openings To Keep On Your Radar
Living in a city like Toronto means that there’s never a shortage of new restaurants, stores, and fitness studios to visit. The only downside is that with all the openings that happen, that it can be hard to stay on top of what’s new and notable!
Luckily, we’ve made a handy guide to some of the most impressive openings in Toronto this June. Take a peek at a few new places to get your eat, shop, and sweat on at in the city.
Oomomo, the massive Japanese variety store that opened its first Ontario location in Don Mills, recently opened a second Ontario location! Located at First Markham Place, the store stands at 25,000-square-feet, making it Oomomo’s biggest location yet. Shoppers can expect to find everything from housewares, arts and crafts, stationary, beauty, and snacks all at affordable prices, as well as limited time pop-up stations that will transport shoppers straight to Japan.
King St. West has a new hip hang out, coming to the city all the way from Vancouver. Known for its “East Coast edge and West Coast hospitality,” The Parlour specializes in upscale, unpretentious eats that are meant to be shared with friends and family — the Goldmember pizza with potato, mushroom, caramelized onion, and truffle is a must-try! The Toronto location is situated at 642 King St. West, just east of Bathurst St. and features a massive year round patio, which is now open and ready for you to visit!
For the first-time ever, 2015 CFDA/Vogue Jonathan Smikhai will be hosting a pop-up shop at TNT Yorkville. Featuring pieces from his Pre-Fall 2019 collection, the pop-up will launch with a big party on June 13 from 6-9 p.m. Head there to mix, mingle, and shop the collection before anyone else. And if you can’t make the launch party, head to TNT Yorkville to shop the collection until mid-July.
From the team behind popular Toronto eateries such as Annabelle Pasta Bar and Frankie’s Italian, The Davenport is now open and ready for you to explore! The new local neighbourhood pub and social specializes in feel-good comfort food made with high-quality ingredients, and lives at 440 Christie St. Stop by and grab a coffee in the morning, or head there in the evenings for a burger — it’s the perfect place to watch the game or take part in trivia nights with family and friends!
On June 7, get ready to immerse yourself in the wonderful world that is Gwyneth Paltrow’s goop. Sitting at 1,300-square-feet, the pop-up is located inside the Hazelton Hotel. Visitors can shop a speciality curated selection of goop’s own collection of skincare, as well as a variety of home, fashion, beauty, wellness, and other speciality items. The pop-up will be open for the entirety of summer and up until September 22, so be sure to make your way over before it’s too late!
Boxing studios are taking over the city, and the latest to open is called UNDRCARD. If you’re looking to get fit and let out some aggression, check out this fancy new studio. Coming to the city from Calgary, the studio is described as a “fight club meets night club,” with classes driven by music, making you move and box to a beat. The new studio opens on June 7 at 425 Adelaide St. West, so be sure to check it out if you’re looking for a fun way to work your muscles.
Interested in an honest shopping experience? Then you need to check out the Honest Shop at Toronto’s Museum of Contemporary Art. Part of an exhibition that runs until July 7, the Honest Shop features handmade goods by locals. But the one thing that sets this pop-up shop apart from most shops and markets is its “self-serve” honour system method of pay. Vendors set the prices for their goods and shoppers are trusted to leave their payments in store. Check it out for yourself, or donate your own handmade goods, which will be accepted until June 22.
