Dallas Neighborhoods

Deep Ellum

Once home to the blues, Deep Ellum is now where boho boutiques, eateries, clubs, and art galleries converge. Primarily an entertainment, nightlife, and shopping centre, it’s youthful and edgy.

South Side

A modern urban masterpiece, the South Side been built around remodeled warehouses, attracting a diverse population as well as many high-end restaurants, galleries, and shops.


The “in” neighborhood of the moment and the spot to find chic boutiques, trendy restaurants, and unique nightspots to savor cocktails with the sleek set.


The seemingly ever-expanding Arts District, with its big-name architectural wonders, provides a vibrant, cultural focal point for the city by day and a location for myriad high-profile gallery openings at night.

Park Cities

Home to Dallas’ elite and wealthy, this is a dynamic duo of smaller neighborhoods: Highland Park and University Park. Drive round and admire their gorgeous green spaces, stunning homes, and university.

North Dallas

Where the shopping begins! The big malls and a slew of restaurants and boutiques jostle for shoppers’ attention, away from the hustle and bustle of downtown.

Oak Lawn

Bars, clubs and restaurants are nestled amid high rises and older homes in the Big D’s rainbow-decked gay and lesbian neighborhood.


This stylish, compact neighborhood – defined by the intersection of Central Highway with both Knox and Henderson streets – houses well-curated antique stores, hip restaurants, and go-to boutiques. Stroll west of Knox for mainstream chain stores, and venture east of Henderson to encounter eclectic art galleries.

Bishop Arts District

Part of the south Dallas neighborhood of Oak Cliff, this ramshackle warehouse district was bought and revamped by a prudent developer in the 1980s. Today, the two-block stretch is a bustling hub for shopping, dining, and nightlife.
