Kind of run down.

I enjoyed going here even tho the area is a bit run down. They have very interesting wall graffiti all over the area. I'd go back here.

We enjoyed the relaxed nightlife in Deep Ellum several times on our week-long stay in the Dallas area. As a Montanan, my immediate thought for comparison is Missoula. A fun mixture of grunge, apathy, hippy, and sophisticated. While I didn't visit during the day or explore much for shopping, it was fun to walk around and check out all of... More

Kinda hard to find parking, but great local shops and places to eat. Would go back on bike to deal with parking issue.

We only drove though most of the area and then stopped at a few bars for a little while but we found this part of town to be very interesting for us as it's artistic and alternative which is right up our alley. I would like to get down here some night for a few shows and more nightlife.

This is my favorite spot in DFW. The people are who they are. It's artsy and down to earth. It's just got everything. Whether you want a tattoo or a slice of pizza or a donut at midnight. Wet your whistle with all the bars (Twilite fo sho) or go see a band. Check out the Deep Ellum arts festival... More

Deep Ellum. A bubbling, simmering pot of music and culture that has a little something for everyone nearly any day of the week. From bohemian restaurants to street taco vendors, country bars to metal venues, local brewery to karaoke, it`s all there. During the week you`re bound to find any number of very talented local artists with the occasional national... More

There's always something going on in Deep Ellum, whether it be the live music on a nightly basis, various art and tattoo festivals, or just grabbing a bite to eat at some of the best restaurants dallas has to offer. Deep Ellum is a must see for any newcomer to the Dallas area.

Something like 25 bars, restaurants, and venues. Lots of great live music every night. Be sure to check out Three Links, Twilite, and the Free Man.

This place has brought continually great evenings of entertainment, culture, art, music, food, and a great bar scene! Growing businesses make the area better and better each time I go. Do yourself a favor and go check it out.

Home away from home, Deep Ellum is my go to spot in Dallas. Drugstore Cowboy, off of main, is my favorite coffee bar in Dallas.
