This neighborhood, with its rich music and entertainment history, is definitely a place to visit if you are in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. There are a number of really good restaurants and bars, the latter offers opportunities to experience some great live music.
There is a nice counter culture feel to this entire area, so if that's your type of thing...by all means check Deep Vellum out.

It's great to see a community come together for a cause and bring back a neighborhood that was in despair. Now the people on the outside need to patronize those businesses so they'll thrive. There's so many restaurants, bars and little shops to visit. It's free to walk around and see all of the murals all while getting exercise.

This was a nice neighborhood to walk around during the day. The stores and restaurants all seemed to have their own design and uniqueness that gave them character compared to other areas in Dallas. No chain stores located here.

Street art were painted all over the sides of buildings and went from simple to exquisitely detailed. Physical art was manifested in a number of welded metal robots (popular theme) and a weirdly shaped pizza above the entrance to Serious Pizza.

A few restaurants had lines out the door but the Pecan Lodge was around the corner with over 30 minutes wait for their BBQ. Bars were crazy in the evening so if you are not into them then nighttime here would not be so interesting to visit. Lots of open carrying of alcohol and beer bottles which seemed unusual.

Street and lot parking were available but at least the meters were off on Sundays. Weekends were quite busy so the nearby DART stations were good public transport alternatives.

Deep Ellum is as old as the city of Dallas. It's history can be seen in the beautiful architecture that dates back to the early 20th Century. Many of the curbs are high so that early riders could step from horse drawn carriages. There are dozens of really good restaurants in Deep Ellum. Black's Barbecue (Lockhart, Texas) is one of the best barbecue restaurants in Texas,. The Blue Marlin Restaurant , and the All Good Cafe feature fantastic late night bands. At night, the late night crowds swarm the streets and music venues. Deep Ellum can become extremely dangerous around midnight. Robberies and shootings are becoming shockingly common around the bars. Beggars are common as well. Daytime is family friendly. Nighttime is dangerous. So bewsre.

This is a neighborhood in Downtown Dallas, unlike any other part of town. There is a long history here, with ups and downs. It's quirky too. There are some fun shops to poke around in. Most of the buildings showcase some form of street art as part of a larger local project. There is a huge variety of bars & restaurants, each with their own unique take on food. I only wish that we had more time to spend here exploring. It's worth a visit both day and night, as the nightlife scene is vibrant and hopping

This neighbourhood maintains its own culture. Main Street is lined up with different bars, restaurants, and small stores. It is also surrounded by graffiti and different murals around the neighbourhood.
It is very close to downtown area.

If you love live music this is a great place to walk around and have your pick of clubs and bars to choose from. There's always something going on and lots of street art to look at. Its a very eclectic area, as much as I love it there and have been going for years, I suggest going with a friend or group.

Grabbed a coffee earlier in the day and came back for dinner. Definitely busier at night, even on a Sat night easily found metered parking. Fun area to walk around with a great variety of places to grab a quick bite or full mean.

Came expecting something like Wynwood in Miami or U Street in DC - pretty disappointed. It's not artsy, craftsy, or even all that funky. It's a bunch of bars and rather glum retail overlaid with rumbling highways on one end and petering out to a rather glum residential section on the other. Somehow, they manage to think it worth charging for parking even on a Sunday afternoon. Not a destination spot unless you're with a group of drinking friends and even then I don't get that much vibe out of it. Vastly overrated IMOP.
