There are lots of good restaurants and unique art to see. Fun to just people watch and walk around. Parking is a bit difficult.

Everytime my wife and I come to Dallas, we always make a point to spend some time in Deep Ellum. There are some great bars to check out, and good selection of restaurants as well. Pecan Lodge has some great tasting BBQ, if you're into sweets check out Glazed for some very interesting donut creations.

We visited a couple of times during our stay in Dallas. Deep Ellum is at the east end of downtown, 1/2 mile from center on foot and accessible by DART. Worth a stroll in late afternoon/evening. The area has gone through a number of up and down cycles and there are a number of nice bars, food spots and interesting... More

Two Deep Ellums exist. There is the day-time Deep Ellum, which offers more casual walking and dining experiences; there is a night-time Deep Ellum, which offers a vibrant night-life. We've experienced both. My wife and I enjoy walking Elm and Main, taking-in the sights and sounds of the parties at the restaurants and bars. Deep Ellum definitely attracts younger people,... More

We went here to see several country western singers. The stage and lighting are great, and so is the reasonable price. We had a really great time but had to leave because we were hungry. The Bad part about this place is that they don't serve food unless you pay more to go upstairs. I was here for a concert... More

Deep Ellum is a central hub for great bars, delicious food, craft beer, and a very diverse crowd. The people are very kind and come from all walks of life. Every bar you enter has a different vibe, but is just as fun as the next place. Most bars have an outdoor courtyard for smoking. The doughnut shop is a... More

Everywhere you look it's an amazing mural or piece. The Dallas Arts district is outstanding. You can find art murals walking distance from each other. Cool shops and antique stores. Hip kick back bars line the streets. A good spot to shop, get food, get inspired, grab a cold one and more!
