Lots of interesting shops, restaurants and pubs to visit (try Lockharts for excellent bbq and Dude Sweet Chocolate for otherworldly chocolates) make the Bishop Arts District a worthwhile stop while visiting Dallas.

Nice area to walk around, shop and eat! We had lunch outside and enjoyed a beautiful Dallas day! Recommend a stop at Emporium Pies for dessert if you have time!

With out of town guests visiting for Christmas we looked for someplace to explore that would appeal to all. We found just that in Bishop Arts District. Great streets to stroll and check out fun shops and galleries--and then satisfy your chocolate craving!

The surrounding area is a little sketchy, but the downtown area in Bishop Arts district is adorable and there are a great few streets to walk around, get brunch and do some shopping. I'm not sure how far I would walk outside of it though!

Who knew smack dab in the middle of a Dallas neighborhood there is a hip shopping/eating experience known as the Bishop Arts District.

Locals hang out on this strip. Lots of restaurant with a diverse cuisine. High prices but worth the trip if you want to break the monotony.

This little area is a great artsy oasis. Plenty of shopping for hand-crafted delights. They have everything from women's clothes to men's hats, cigars and pies. If If you want BBQ (and if you're not a vegetarian it IS the thing to do in Texas) try Lockhart Smokehouse. The live music there is fun and there's plenty of meat. If... More

I enjoy spending Saturday or Sunday afternoons walking the Bishop Arts District after eating a delicious brunch at Jonathan's in Oak Cliff! There are cute little shops and places to have a cocktail along the way.
