What Its Known For

What used to be a less popular, punk-rock pocket of Dallas, Deep Ellum has transformed into one of the most favored neighborhoods in the city.
Adorned with bright, expansive street art, and fueled by trendy restaurants, cocktail bars and boutique shops that draw in both local and tourist crowds alike.

Living in Deep Ellum

Historic Deep Ellum has been a cultural center for Dallas since 1873, drawing musicians, artists, and beer crafters alike! Located just east of Downtown, this hip urban neighborhood prides itself on living local. Get ready to come home to a community that pits urban gardens next door to hip venues and independently-owned restaurants, because sustainability and local development are vital to this area. At night, Deep Ellum gets lit up like 6th Street in Austin and is one of the trendiest places in Dallas for nightlife. And get ready to immerse yourself in local music because the scene in Deep Ellum is one of the hottest in the area! Live music venues like Trees, Prophet Bar, and Bomb Factory showcase talented artists, local artists, and also some of the most popular bands/pop artists/DJs in the world. In terms of eats, the hardest part about finding a dinner spot here is deciding where to start first. From fine dining to pub fare, Deep Ellum regularly rates high on local “Best Of” lists.

Deep Ellum’s location is one of our favorites. It’s central, cheap Ubers everywhere, across the street from Downtown, and has easy access to the highways to get you where you need to be. Plus, you can find Smart City headquarters in this neighborhood, because we love trendy lofts and local restaurants!

Finding the Perfect Apartment in Deep Ellum

When it comes to Deep Ellum apartments, expect character. You’re going to find more than cookie-cutter options in this neighborhood — the area is best known for its industrial lofts and spacious floor plans. While the neighborhood isn’t often recognized for higher-end or brand-new properties, you can still find plenty of pads with modern upgrades — even trendy loft spaces with amenities like stainless appliances or contemporary track lighting. But with its quick growth — a new-restaurant-opening-every-other-week kind of vibe — the neighborhood is building new apartment complexes on every empty lot they can find.
