Where To Live
When the manufacturing activity moved out of Dallas to the suburbs, the city looked to rejuvenate the neighborhood into a mixed-use development. While the majority of the West End is retail and entertainment, there are some condos in the center of the neighborhood and as redevelopment continues, there may be more residential properties in the future.
Prices of West End condos are mostly the same as condos throughout Downtown Dallas. Some buyers may be willing to pay a little more for a location along Main Street to the east of West End. North of the freeway, in the Oak Lawn neighborhood, prices range a bit higher due to several luxury high-rises.
Where To Eat
Eateries in West End range from popular national chains to independents serving up great ethnic cuisine and comfort food. Check out Tutta's for Texas-style pizza or head over to YO Ranch Steakhouse for some of the best beef in Dallas. For more culinary excellence, you just have to walk down Market Street for Mexican, Southern-style, and farm-to-table cuisines. A quick breakfast or lunch can be found practically anywhere in the West End, but try Record Grill on Elm Street which is noted for its meatloaf and burgers.
What You'll See
You'll see a lot of tourists. Many of them come to the West End to visit the JFK Memorial and the Sixth Floor Museum. You'll see others enjoying carriage rides around the neighborhood, taking in the architecture and the historic ambiance. With all of the tourist activity, it can be easy to forget that West End is also a business district. You'll see urban professionals coming and going to work, taking lunch at one of the many restaurants or stopping off for a drink or dinner with coworkers.
Friday Night Fun
West End residents are living at the epicenter of an entertainment district, so the toughest part of a Friday night out is deciding where to go. Many of the restaurants in West End have top-notch bars, pairing up their excellent food offerings with designer cocktails and craft beer, so pick one with the confidence that you can’t go wrong in the West End. After dinner and drinks, walk down Houston Street several blocks to the House of Blues and catch a musical act. If you want to make your own music, Gator’s on Market Street has karaoke nights.
The Perfect Sunday
A relaxing Sunday morning starts by taking a leisurely stroll over to one of several West End cafes and getting a coffee drink and a light breakfast. Have it at the cafe or take it with you to JFK Plaza so you can sit in the shade and people-watch. If the temperature starts to climb and you’re looking for something to do indoors, walk over to the Dallas World Aquarium or the Perot Museum.
Getting to and from other parts of downtown via bus is pretty easy for West Enders. Bus service runs west-east along Elm and Main Streets and north-south along Lamar Street. For travels further away from West End, such as to the airport, the West End train station is a stop for four of DART’s (Dallas Area Rapid Transit) train lines. Ride-share and bike-share are also options. There are several pay parking lots in West End, however they mostly accommodate the tourist and business crowd, which makes owning a car somewhat inconvenient.
