Restaurants and Entertainment

Oak Lawn Neighborhood

Visit the Oak Lawn neighborhood to experience dining, shopping, arts and culture, and a lively nightlife scene. This neighborhood has long been the center of Dallas’ gay community. The neighborhood bars and clubs still draw big crowds each weekend.

As one of Dallas’ first commercial districts for African Americans and European immigrants, Deep Ellum is one of the most historically and culturally significant neighborhoods in the city.  Although Deep Ellum’s main claim to fame has always been its music, it is also home to many art-based and creative businesses, and is a hotspot for live music, cool bars and casual eateries.
