Recent attempts at improved security are showing, but it is still advisable to be alert when outdoors, at night or alone.

All that said, it is still a fun place to wander, have fun and relax (or party). Attitude is everything and the kitschy shops, local artists and little restaurants can make for a memorable visit.

I was visiting Kettle Art Gallery which seems to be open only on the weekend but well worth the visit if you like eclectic art at very worthwhile pricing. Lemongrass Restaurant is directly across the street and the food is divine. A white tablecloth restaurant in a very hip neighborhood!

I have always loved Deep Ellum. When I lived in Dallas, Deep Ellum was the place to go for live music and sometimes, something a little wilder. I was there yesterday and Deep Ellum is still that fantastic and unusual place. But its also a great place to walk around, enjoy some street art, and sit at one of the outdoor patios and have a drink. The original feel of Deep Ellum is still there. I love anywhere that you can find a trendy restaurant or great little watering hold that is accessible, but not touristy. Deep Ellum still feels like a local hang-out.

Watch out Austin - you have competition for keeping it weird in Deep Ellum! It never ceases to surprise me whenever I visit Deep Ellum. Folks are having a great time enjoying the clubs and restaurants and like me, interesting people watching.

Deep Ellum has undergone a lot of changes over the years, but one thing that has never changed is that on just about any given night, you can find good live music on that small strip in the heart of Dallas. It's the closest thing we have to 6th Street in Austin and many of the bars that are there now (Trees, Adair's, Curtain Club, etc.) have been there since I started going there about 20 years ago. Most of the bars/clubs in Deep Ellum are laid back and better-suited for the beer and straight whiskey drinkers than the martini and frou frou drinkers. A lot of the bars also have a decent menu, too. Adair's, for example, has one of the best burgers in Dallas and you can wash it down with an iced cold Lone Star Beer if you want. Unlike much of Dallas, Deep Ellum is not pretentious, which is one of the reasons I still go there today.
