It seems that this small area tagged as the "Bishop's Arts District" is composed of more restaurants than art galleries. There are a few women's clothing stores, a kid's boutique, a pet store, an art gallery or two, and not much else we saw. Parking was free on the street. We didn't find anything to buy :-(

The Bishop Arts District is small, doesn't take long to walk around but has interesting and different shops, galleries and restaurants. Busy and eclectic, parking was cheap $5 and everyone is nice. Enos Pizza was a good stop for a light beer and scrumptious tasty pizza. Sat outside while people watching and eating. Highly recommend it if you need to... More

A unique neighborhood in Dallas that offers an eclectic mix of restaurants and shops. Parking has never been an issue and the area offers a diverse selection of cuisines and spots for drinks. Parking has never been an issue and eveything is walkable.

Everytime we visit the Bishop Arts District we have a great time. There's so much to do, see, and places to eat. There's a bus that goes from downtown to the BAD (for free) and it's perfect. No parking hassle.

I love this area, there is so much to discover: boutiques, new and old restaurants, even a hat shop. It really is unique. When the weather is nice, it is perfect to stroll around. I just wish they had an outdoor café.

Trendy, charming, quaint, and quirky! Absolutely love this place, as it feels as though you are not in the big city. Unfortunately, we didn't get the chance to immerse ourselves in the neighborhood. However, on our next trip to Dallas we will actually make time to visit this district.

We enjoyed walking around this neighborhood and checking out the independent shops and restaurants. We visited on a Monday and many places were closed, so keep in mind that Monday may not be the ideal day to visit. We didn't need more than an hour to see everything we wanted to see.

Being in the Bishop Arts District was like walking around an artsy city like Austin or Portland, OR. I just found out this place existed. I was there to meet a date for lunch and after we ate, we ended up walking around and visiting several of the local shops. I've always been a big supporter of small and local... More
