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!

A lot of great restaurants and bars opening up again. The city is finally embracing the area. Some great local artists street art around the area. Great area to visit when in Dallas.

I must admit I enjoy Deep Ellum, and always see some interesting things and people. I'm a professional photographer so I enjoy doing photo shoots there because of all the artistic wall paintings. I don't think you'll find a more interesting place in Dallas.

A nice stretch of bars, restaurants, and tattoo parlors. Angry Dog, Cane Rosso, Deep Ellum Brewery, and the Anvil are all worth a trip by themselves. To have them all within a few blocks is great. Street parking seemed adequate, although I came by public transportation. It was only a twenty minute walk back to the West End.

First impression of Deep Ellum, mmm kind of run down. Then we went to see Bowling For Soup at The Curtain Club. The Curtain Club is not fancy! The stools have tears in them, the bathrooms or average, but the bar service was excellent. The second night we went to Trees. It is a step up from the Curtain Club.... More

Great concerts at night. Good food. Amazing art work and an all around good time. My favorite stop, Trees!!! Deep Ellum had a downward spiral for a while but now it's back and better then ever.

We ended up in this area several times while in Dallas to eat at trendy fun places (2 of which was on Diners, Drive ins, & Dives). The art work in the area on the bottom of the bridge colums along with the metal sculptures. I loved the huge dog park in the area as well! You can tell this... More
