There’s a new kid on the block when it comes to a view-filled place to play and stay in Toronto. As of September 4th, The Bisha is officially open for business – and she’s a beauty.

MEC wants Canadians to get outside this summer – and is making it easier than ever to do so (to the point where, really, you have no excuses).

Your drugstore run can now come with a side of Toronto nostalgia.

What was one of Toronto’s grittiest strip clubs is now home to a restored talking point-filled hotel and inevitable summer hot spot.

The 125-year-old building that once housed the landmark strip club Jilly’s (and a boarding house) has been transformed into The Broadview Hotel – a boutique hotel and multi-functional event space that could become a new reason for the downtown set to venture east of Yonge.
