    This is a cool and colorful neighborhood in the downtown corridor. When I was a teen, we used to sneak out and go down here to try to get into nightclubs. Memories.

    I have only driven through here and it looks quite cool. Maybe a bit trashy looking. I imagine many artsy-hipsters are into this neighborhood. I really don't know. I guess I need to give it a try one of these days. Cool art around. Filled with a unique character.

    Good for nightlife, but also good to roam around during the day. You'll find the best looking vine walls with chipped paint ever! :)

    Dallas's nightclub district is the place to go for live music, dancing and drinking. There's everything from swank to dive bars and even some swanky dive bars (if that's possible) and in the Big D, you better believe it is. Club Trees is my personal favorite but then again, I could biased by the fact that I got to belly up to the bar next to Mike Ness of Social Distortion fame a few lifetimes ago before watching him blaze into a searing rendition of 'Mommy's Little Monster.'

    A neighborhood area slightly east of downtown Dallas initially settled by Bahamian immigrants. Currently filled with family-owned restaurants and cafes, art galleries, boutiques with kinky merchandise (including tattoo shops) and nightlife with live jazz entertainment and other types of music genre's. For performance options, check the website for www.dallasjournal.com.

    10 years ago this place was awesome. It was filled with young people, live music, good food and a great nightlife scene. It took a hit with crime rates, but this area is on the up again. There's more street art than graffiti now. Venues are getting better. There's a new gym. And some boutiques too. The Prophet Bar is a great place to grab a drink and hear some live music, national and local. I also love Serious Pizza, famous for giant pies!

    Take the DART train to save yourself parking costs and get ready to have a wonderful time! Lots of high quality restaurants, exotic and amazing shops and live performers can be found within close distance. A great place to meet friends and just hang out for a bit.

    This quirky neighborhood has had it's highs and lows over the past 4 decades. Currently it's experiencing a comeback. In the early 90's Pearl Jam played on the small stage at Trees. Deep Ellum has been a live music staple and a great place to discover local bands. Currently though, Deep Ellum is coming back as not only a live music spot, but also as an organic market/dreadlocked poet hang out. There are great eateries, art galleries, music venues, shops, and lofts.

    I haven't explored absolutly all of Deep Ellum, but it's def the part of town I would go if I was in the mood for great eats and entertainment in unexpected places. Home of the warehouses and lofts, sourounded by some unique resteraunts, and occasionally "uniquely unsightly" people this is your corner of town. Great area on the up, however don't expect to be immersed in glitzy sourrounsings. They seem to enjoy their beer and a good laugh here. :)

    Deep Ellum is the heart of Dallas's indie and blues music scene. Located a few blocks east of downtown, the area is a good place to catch a local band, then chill out with a hookah and a beer in one of the various lounges. It's the closest thing to a funky or counterculture neighborhood Dallas's got.
