Chinatown and the Little Italy neighborhood have marked Toronto’s cross-cultural tradition of diverse Asian and Canadian-Italian cuisine and nightlife. Chinatown was founded in 1878, but its development was established in the second half of the 20th century. It is located on the crossroads of Dundas Street West and Spadina Avenue, where the El Mocambo music venue operates. Little Italy was created between 1914 and 1918 during the inter-war period, when about 40,000 Italians migrated to Canada. The district offers restaurants, bars and shops based not only in the Italian-Canadian style, but also in the Portuguese-Canadian style.
