“Love the neighborhood!”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

Just because we think it's Oak Cliff it's not a bad neighborhood. On the contrary it's becoming a fun and nice place to visit. You will find great dining options and valet parking as needed. See the art galleries and visit Boomers boutique it has unique gifts.

“Oak Cliff niche”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

This area is exploding. We went on a beautiful Saturday with wonderful weather. EVERYONE was there and parking was hard to find. But, I suggest finding a small cafe or restaurant and sitting outside. People watching galore.

“A different side of Dallas”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Most visitors (and many locals) have never heard of the Bishop Arts District. Even if they have, finding it can be challenging, as can the parking. But for those who venture forth, there awaits a different side of Dallas than most people see or experience. Once you get there (it is in north Oak Cliff, just a couple of miles from downtown by car now, but eventually by streetcar), you find yourself in an area that is a throwback to early 20th Century Dallas, where people walked from home to shops to restaurants. The restored homes are there, surrounding the District, but the heart of the District is where you will find shops, galleries, restaurants, and bars. All are on a human scale. A group of 7 of us (age 50s- 80s) met for dinner at the Greek Cafe, and then strolled the shops and galleries for a couple of hours. Lots of people of all ages on the sidewalks, and in the shops and cafes. Just a wonderful atmosphere, safe and welcoming, away from the tourist and convention magnets. This is no West End or Uptown, Deep Ellum or Greenville Avenue. It is Bishop, it is Oak Cliff, but it is still a vibrant part of Dallas. The only downside is the parking (or the lack thereof). Once you get past that, all is good.
