Absolutely my favorite area of Dallas to hang out with the possible exception of Lower Greenville!!!! The restaurants, bars, clubs are very funky and cool! Great energy, and home to my favorite eatery in all of Dallas, Angry Dog!! Every trip to Dallas includes several trips to this terrific place to walk around and hang out!!! It's like Melrose Avenue... More

Well, where could I start? Deep Ellum is the home of amazing Texan BBQ, an awesome microbrewery which produces fantastic beer, colorful graffitis, some cool dive-bars, and world-class Restaurants. It's also kind of an art scene! The area is about five-ten minutes away from downtown by car and definitely worth a visit. Make sure, you check out all the creative... More

Take the time to stroll around and check out the art work and murals but also be sure to try some of the local eateries and of course bars. There are some rooftop bars where you can get lovely views of the city and of course try some interesting beers. If you're hungry late at night be sure to try... More

Loved this area - lots of craft beers, atmospheric, historic, lovely old crumbling buildings and interesting places to eat - mostly burgers, ribs that sort of thing. Great atmosphere, nice to sit outside in the sunshine, chill and watch the world go by. A few other interesting shops but mainly about beer and food. Not a great walk from downtown... More
