Your Table is Ready
If you are a foodie, or simply need a break from the kitchen, there are over 200 restaurants in the downtown and nearby historic Exchange district alone. From lively sports bars to trendy cafés, craft breweries, food trucks and upscale eateries, Winnipeg boasts some of the country’s finest and most creative dining experiences. You’ll find an astonishing diversity of both local and global cuisines right outside your front door. If creating gourmet meals in the comfort of your own home is your preference, a visit to the local farmer’s market and fine food retailers at The Forks is a must.
Take me to the River
Finding a home in Winnipeg’s downtown does not mean having to compromise city versus nature. 300 Assiniboine is situated right on the bank of the Assiniboine River and next door to Bonny Castle Park. Access to the beautiful river walk is right outside your door year round. This popular path joins many of Winnipeg’s downtown neighbourhoods, as well as The Forks, Winnipeg’s premier meeting place. In the winter, the river is transformed into Canada’s longest ice skating trail, complete with eclectic warming huts designed and built by talented artists, architects and designers. Experience the near-by sites of the Canadian Museum of Human Rights, the Winnipeg Art Gallery, and the Manitoba Museum.
A Front Row Seat
300 Assiniboine is walking distance to many of Winnipeg’s prime entertainment destinations, including BellMTS Place – home to the Winnipeg Jets, the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre, Prairie Theatre Exchange, The Burton Cummings Theatre, Centennial Concert Hall, as well as galleries, museums, music venues and nightclubs.
Winnipeg is a festival lovers’ dream. Downtown is the hub of many activities, such as The TD Winnipeg International Jazz Festival, The Winnipeg Fringe Festival, Nuit Blanche, Cyclovia, Canada Day at The Forks, and hundreds of other concerts and events. There is never a dull moment downtown! And being in the heart of the city means you’ll never have to fight for that prime parking spot.
The Epicentre of Retail Therapy
Downtown Winnipeg offers a number of retail avenues, from Mountain Equipment Coop for outdoor enthusiasts to trendy boutiques in both the Exchange District and Osbourne Village, there is a little something for everyone. In addition to the iconic Hudson’s Bay and The Forks Market, the immensely popular seasonal pop up shops and markets filled with remarkable local vendors are certainly not to be missed.
