ABOUT THE DEEP ELLUM NEIGHBORHOOD
Deep Ellum has seen huge changes in recent years and is quickly returning to its roots as the arts and live music capitol of the Dallas metroplex. In the 1920s, Deep Ellum was a mecca for jazz and blues artists, and that passion is certainly alive and well. Street performers and craft vendors are frequently found adding their artistic flair to the area, and beautifully executed murals of musical legends and Texan icons grace the sides of the historic buildings. The music doesn’t stop on the streets– Deep Ellum is home to over thirty beloved live music venues, ranging from intimate, saloon-style bar atmospheres like The Prophet to massive, multi-level electro-house dance clubs like The Nines.
In addition to a huge collection of options to satisfy your musical appetite, Deep Ellum continues to impress with its choices for performing arts attractions. The Dallas Comedy House offers comedy shows 5 nights a week as well as classes in improv, sketch, and production, and hidden in the basement of an apartment complex on Main Street lies The Undermain Theatre, a ninety-seat auditorium that has hosted rapturous mainstage productions and stage readings since 1984. Each April, the streets of Deep Ellum explode with over 200 artists and vendors, 150 original bands, 6 stages and 2 additional performance areas for the free, three-day Deep Ellum Art Festival. Quickly gaining traction as the newest must-try for Dallas foodies,
Deep Ellum restaurants are proving themselves to be a force to be reckoned with. An authentic Neapolitan pizza shop complete with wood-fired ovens and an outdoor patio, Cane Rosso has been named the “Best Pizza in Dallas” by D Magazine for five years running. Another Deep Ellum favorite is Zatar, a bright, chic, indoor-outdoor Lebanese restaurant with everything from falafel and hummus to table-serviced hookahs. Shopping enthusiasts can also find their sanctuary in Deep Ellum, with endless browsing opportunities in shops like Lula B’s antique mall, Acme Co.’s collection of charming rubber stamps and Deep Ellum Trading Co., a longstanding shop that sells commissioned work from the local artist community.
Not only is Deep Ellum extremely walkable, it provides easy access to the Dart Rail system, Central Expressway and Interstate 45, scoring it as convenient as it is cool, and is particularly attractive to the college and medical crowds who can enjoy a short trip to nearby Baylor Hospital, Dallas Theological Seminary, and El Centro Community College.
The area’s collection of refurbished industrial lofts with spacious floor plans and modern renovations with stellar views of the Dallas skyline make renting in the area a no-brainer.
