Uptown is the most popular neighborhood in Dallas, and it’s one of the most pedestrian-friendly areas in all of Texas. Apartments here are highly sought after for their luxurious finishes as they are typically brand new. Plus, the neighborhood is home to some of the best nightlife, food, and shopping in the city. The rent in Uptown Dallas is above the Metroplex average. So, let’s find out why life around McKinney Avenue is so desirable!

Straddling McKinney ave, Uptown is sprinkled with the city’s coolest hangouts. Grab your cowboy boots on and head on over to 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? The Gingerman has a great patio and they host trivia throughout the week. Grocery shopping is easy (and can be delivered) at Foxtrot Market. This trendy convenience store offers local products and everything from to-go food to toothbrushes.

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 3.5-mile trail is a favorite for jogging, walking, bicycling, and inline skating. Named “One of Dallas’ Favorite Outdoor Places,” you’ll have a little slice of nature heaven in urban living. You might notice rails in the streets of this neighborhood, and that’s because it’s home to the M Line trolley, a historic transportation system that is completely free.

When the sun goes down, the party isn’t over. Uptown has some of the best bars and clubs in the city. Kung Fu Saloon, 6th Street Bar, Concrete Cowboy, and BBC are on the same block, making meeting your friends out super easy. For the foodies, Uchi offers delicious sushi and Sixty Vines Uptown is a dining escape with wine and food that gives Napa, California a run for its money.

The West Village area is full of activity, with retail, bars, restaurants, salons, and even a hot yoga studio (plus, the M Line trolley takes you straight there). One of the coolest things to hit this area is MUTTS Canine Cantina, where your dog can run while you have fun (drinking and eating). The apartment styles in West Village are modern and trendy, so if your budget is a bit higher, this could be the place for you.

The State/Allen area brings the neighborhood “white picket fence” feel to the hustle and bustle of Uptown. With a homey vibe, you’ll love strolling with your pup or pals and hitting up staples such as State and Allen restaurant, The Nodding Donkey, and Parliament.
