Bishop Arts District
The Bishop Arts District is a two-block, former warehouse area in southern Dallas. Some would describe it as Dallas’s best kept secret. It is home to the most sought-after restaurants, coffee shops and funky boutique shopping. This part of Dallas is to influence its local flavor and to persuade you to eat local, shop local, and live local. The farm-to-table restaurants and vintage spots ensure the corporations stay out of this neighborhood where the origins match the organic food.

Although we would like to refer to Knox-Henderson as a single district, it actually is two unique neighborhoods in one. Named after two streets crossing Central Expressway, Knox-Henderson is a study in contrasts. The Westside is Knox; a picture perfect city street of traditional home décor shops, al fresco dining, spas and salons. The Katy Trail, which bookends the street to the west, is a 3.2 mile running trail. It is one of the most pedestrian friendly neighborhoods in the city. To the east, visitors will find the funkier vibe of Henderson Avenue where vintage shops, gastro-pubs and popular patio bar dominate a street that not so long ago was underutilized. Henderson has become a destination for not only the city’s hipsters, but also Dallas’ elite. After all, some of the best bars and restaurants in the city are located on this lively street in East Dallas. To view more on this entertainment district, Click Here.
