Shinan's guide to Toronto's film festival hotspots: Theatre District

Taylor Swift, Julia Roberts, Lupita Nyong'o, Terrence Howard, Elle Fanning and Julianne Moore are just a slice of the celebrities who have partied the night away during TIFF in Toronto's Theatre District.

And it's no wonder, with the Soho House and the Shangri-La hotel (housing Momofuku's after-party favourite, Daisho) near neighbours and the popular Storys building just a few blocks away.

This year, the stars are sure to flock to Byblos, the new Lebanese eatery in the Storys building. Yet it remains to be seen who might take to the piano in the Shangri-La's lobby (Terrence last year) or slip into Momofuku's icebox Milk Bar for a little crack pie.

Watch the video below, and be sure to check out Shinan's daily festival column for all the happenings at last night's premieres and parties.
