Christie Subway Station

The Christie subway station is located on the Bloor / Danforth line of the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC).  It was opened in February 1966 and serves about 12,000 people a day.

Christie station is located in the neighbourhood called, “Koreatown”  Like most cultural neighbourhoods in Toronto, they evolve and develop over time.  By 1967, the Canadian government changed their immigration policy to open its doors more liberally to immigrants.  Today , there are over 70,000 Koreans living in the city with the vast majority working in and around the area of Bloor and Manning Avenue in restaurants, bakeries, gift shops and grocery stores.

Today many of them do not live in Koreatown, but in North York in the area of Yonge and Steeles, Thornhill and the town of Markham.

A new era in café’s, Toronto’s Koreatown has just opened its doors to “Snakes & Lattes”.  You will notice the difference the moment you walk in the front door, the social warmth of the room packed with groups of people having fun drinking beer and coffee and enjoying hours of fun playing board games!

Snakes & Lattes
There is a wall with shelving that is full of board games for you to take your pick.  Just a twist on an old pastime.
