Unique area to say the least!!

The Deep Ellum area of Dallas is a one of a kind experience. From bars to burlesque school and everything in between. It's actually a fun area of Dallas to visit.

What a great surprise. Saw the festival listed on a "Texas To Do" list and thought we would go check it out. What an interesting place to walk around but the art festival made it all the better. A great selection of art and food. Had a great time. Thought we would be there an hour or two but ended... More

There was an open house while we visited. The outdoor seating area was great with a fun band. Lots of good Texas cuisine available. The specialty beers were interesting- in a good way! The location is downtown however it is not an easy place to walk to and from. It really is off the beaten path.

I know Deep Ellum is not hidden by any means, but it is often a neighborhood left to last. This is the upbeat, young, progressive area that can cater to anyone! Don't miss out on this in Dallas!

took the bus over from Main st, the most interesting thing about this district is the absolutely appalling power pole installation going on, hugely ugly with electrical wires festooned up and down the streets from long black poles, very strange! Went around lunchtime during the week, everything appeared closed and nooo people, but then we did find this a characteristic... More

We went to Deep Ellum to attend a cheese making class at the Mozzarella Co. We had a great time. In driving down we did notice the line at the Pecan Lodge and took note that we will have to get in that line sometime soon. We paid for parking... $2. Fair price. Felt safe and enjoyed ourselves.

I came to Ellum looking for barbeque at the Pecan Lodge, which had already run out of barbeque by 1:30 on a Sunday. (Mission not accomplished.) We ended up staying to look around a little and were glad that we did. We went to a cool thrift shop next to the Burlesque School, which was unfortunately closed on Sundays. There... More

This was my first visit to Dallas.Went to the Slaughter House.It was a heap of fun.I was so scared after a while I could not even scream anymore! Deep Ellum was rocking with clubs & had a great atmosphere.

Wife and I visited on a Sunday night. We were pretty wiped and the streets were quiet. Have been there before when the place was jumpin. Some great bars and local music available. Hope to get back some time!
