Uptown is the most popular neighborhood in Dallas, and it’s one of the most pedestrian-friendly areas in all of Texas. It’s highly desireable with luxurious and expensive brand new apartments, and home to some of the best nightlife, food, and shopping in the city.

The Uptown area is full of fun and excitement, so you’ll never run out of things to do. Get your cowboy boots on and head on over to Pat Green’s massive new bar, The Rustic! With live music playing every weekend, this restaurant and concert venue is definitely not one to miss. Craving something a bit more laid back? Venture over to The Common Table for a bite of their delicious pulled pork spring rolls, all while sitting under their gorgeous tree-covered patio. They also offer one of Dallas’ best happy hours! Double win! From the exciting and adventurous to the more laid-back and chill, there are plenty of places to enjoy that are walkable from Uptown Dallas luxury apartments.

Enjoy perks like the famous Katy Trail with your pup, and make a stop at the Katy Trail Ice House for a beer on their patio. The Katy Trail is a jogging, walking, bicycling, and inline skating trail that runs through the Uptown and Oak Lawn areas of Dallas for a distance of about 3.5 miles. In 2006, the Katy Trail was named “One of Dallas’ Favorite Outdoor Places.” With the ability to walk to everything, living in Uptown Dallas is definitely a no-brainer. Uptown now even offers its own version of public transportation with a historic trolley/rail system. This gorgeous, historic trolley and rail system bring quick and easy mobile transportation right to your front door!

For nightlife, Uptown has some of the best bars and clubs in the city. Kung Fu Saloon, 6th Street Bar, Concrete Cowboy, and Clutch are all clustered together to make a fun bar hopping night. Plus, there are apartments behind the clubs, so you can walk to the bars and stumble home safely! Foodies need to check out Uchi; it’s an Austin-based sushi restaurant that is one of the top rated in the nation. Also check out Hopdoddy for burgers and truffle fries — all locally sourced and delicious!

The West Village area is full of activity, with retail, bars, restaurants, salons and even a hot yoga studio. And the best part is that there are apartments above the businesses, so you can literally live an elevator ride away from food, drinks and fun!

The State/Allen area is a small section of Uptown that still has that trendy neighborhood bars-and-restaurants type feel. Its residential feels and overgrown trees make it feel like home, but still with the walkability and amazing Uptown location! We know of plenty of great State/Allen apartments and they’re building new Dallas properties all over Uptown. Smart City Apartment Locating can definitely help find you something awesome!

Don’t just take our word for it. See what our friends say!

Uptown is so stacked, it's like a little functioning city, inside of a larger city.
