Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Toronto

Jacobs & Co.
There's a whiff of machismo about this sophisticated meat Mecca in the trendy King Street area.
Jacflash
A multi-label boutique with a clear identity of its own.
Index G B&B
A quirky bed-and-breakfast that's cool, casual and super-creative.
I Miss You
Beautiful designer vintage fashion.
Hugo Boss
House of Vintage
A vintage shop with outposts on both sides of the Atlantic.
House of Gourmet
Gourmet is an over-generous description, but House of Pretty Damn Good doesn't quite have the same ring to it.
Hotel Le Germain
This boutique hotel stands apart from the rest, both physically and stylistically.
Holt Renfrew
Whether you want to relax in a spa, chat to the concierge about the theatre, or, well, shop, then Holt Renfrew is definitely the place to go.
Hockey Hall of Fame
Canadians pour in here by the truckload with the whole family in tow to worship at the altar of ice-hockey...
Hippo Tours
The Hippo is a 'unique 40-passenger vessel' that will drive you through the streets of Toronto and keep you afloat in Lake Ontario (while you're drowning in public humiliation).
Hilton Garden Inn
If you hadn't seen the brand emblazoned on the outside of the building, you'd swear you were standing in the lobby of a fancy-pants boutique hotel.

Hermès
Hemingways
There's a delicious incongruence about this Kiwi pub with its gaudy flags and banners being slap-bang in the middle of the socialite district.
Hazelton Spa
There's nothing frivolous here, just the tools and science to pamper and perk up an elite clientele.
Harry Rosen
Men go wild in this luxury department store just for you.
Harbourfront Centre
This is an internationally-recognised Canadian Yachting Association.
Hammam
If grottos conjure up childhood notions of overpowering stench and hairy trolls, Hammam Spa should help to put those nightmares to rest.
Guu Izakaya
An Izakaya is a chaotic Japanese bar and snack-stop that promises a bullet train to inebriation. The crazy Guu chain has been getting around Vancouver, and now it's Toronto's turn.
Gucci
Greg’s Ice Cream
Greg's has been Toronto's tastiest ice-cream parlour for 30 years now, and shows no signs of a meltdown.
GreenShag
GreenShag is where the innovative meets conservative. The result is fantastic men's clothes.
Grayline Bus Tours
This is a hop-on/hop-off open-topped bus tour of the city.
Gooderham Building
This thin wedge of a red-brick building is a Toronto landmark.
Global Alliance
Glen Abbey Golf Club
This is the first solo-designed course by golf legend Jack Nicklaus, and it's held a record 25 Canadian Open tournaments.
Girl Friday
Clothes for a woman with style, and a budget.
Gilead
Conceived as merely the kitchen for Kennedy's catering business (which he runs alongside various restaurants), loyal fans demanded breakfast, lunch and now dinner here.
Ghandi Cuisine
Ghandi's isn't exactly photogenic, but it's what's on the inside that counts. The same can be said of the mammoth, blistered roti wraps that's dished out here.
George Street Diner
A comfort food diner with plenty of Irish charm; just what you need to soak up the booze.
Gardiner Museum
Canada's only museum dedicated entirely to ceramics, the Gardiner is compact, intimate and easily explored.
Foxley
Foxley was one of the first restaurants to take a gamble on what is now coined as the 'Ossington Strip'.
Four Seasons Centre
Canada's first and only purpose-built opera house is home to both the Canadian Opera Company and the National Ballet of Canada.
For Your Eyes Only
Not just for your eyes only, but for your hands, too.
Footwork
Eschewing pretty décor, Footwork gets down and dirty with the business of electronic dance.
Fashion Crimes
Fashion Crimes will have you getting in touch with your inner princess in no time.
Fairmont Royal York
