Around Bishop Arts District

Because of its long history as one of the preferred neighborhoods of Dallas, there are a number of wonderful and historic homes in the community. Most of these residences have been restored and modernized and many newcomers to the area find just what they are looking for, whether you lead a quiet or active lifestyle. In the past decade a number of new residents have been attracted to the unique ambiance of the Bishop Arts District and there are several new condominium complexes and loft conversions available to meet this need.

Due to its small size, there are only a handful of restaurants in the district. Though modest in number, these dining options are popular and you will find one of the few remaining soda fountains at a local hamburger joint. The area is, of course, just south of the many fine dining choices in Downtown. With its close proximity Oak Cliff, residents often find their appetites sated by the local restaurants and authentic international cuisines offered there. Although the neighborhood is smaller than other parts of Dallas, Davis Street has some of the city's most exciting restaurants and include pizzerias, Sushi bars, and Latin fusion cuisine.

What was once the busiest trolley stop in the 1930s, the Bishop Arts District now has more than 60 boutiques, eateries, and specialty stores catering to the current residents and visitors. You'll see many visitors and tourists throughout the day and weekend as they seek the treasures only found in this area. Many weekends, you will find festivals and other events that are located in the district due to its special ambiance and accommodating residents.

The evenings in Bishop Arts are quiet and evocative of a small town of yesteryear. The Fridays will find the local restaurants and eateries full with both locals and visitors who came to shop, yet stayed to relax in a low-key environment.
