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.

I lived in Deep Ellum for three years. Deep Ellum used to be a fun place to go on the weekends. It is now old, nasty, run-down and rat infested. There are panhandlers on every corner. I will give thumbs up to Deep Sushi, Twisted Root and St. Pete's Dancing Marlin. No free parking.

This is one of my favorite places to take a blanket and watch concerts after work! It's relaxing and full of urban hipsters. Take what you need to kick back and relax. The music and vibe is great!

We really enjoyed the laid back vibe of the Deep Ellum Brewery! Great music on a Thursday night with a food truck to boot!
