Home to a growing arts and culture scene, Hamilton has become a metropolis where young talent and those looking for some creative therapy flock to experience music, art and food. Raised amongst the steel mills, the talent emerging from Hamilton is grittier and more down to earth, giving way to an exploding scene of talent to become immersed in; the GTA’s Brooklyn. These residents are real, relatable and eager to share their talents with locals and newcomers alike.


No longer just a small town suburb, Stoney Creek and the surrounding area have welcomed the vibrancy of new growth. High-end and casual restaurants, cafés, breweries and unique lunch spots pepper Hamilton’s downtown and stretch into surrounding communities. As locals know, the old west-end of big-box chains and industrial stretches has dissipated into an artisan foodie scene worthy of exploration.
