The Bishop Arts District is Dallas’ New “It” Neighborhood

All signs point to Oak Cliff‘s Bishop Arts District as the new “it” neighborhood— and it looks like it’s destined to be a Dallas hot spot for quite some time.

In one article, CBS-DFW says,

The Bishop Arts area is now one of Dallas’ hottest destinations. It’s home to an eclectic mix of restaurants, music venues and shops that visitors won’t find in cookie cutter suburban malls….

“Used to be Lemmon Avenue was the place to go for restaurants, then Lower Greenville, then Upper Greenville, then Deep Ellum and West End,” says Bob Stimson, President of the Oak Cliff Chamber of Commerce. “This area with these transportation components is going to be here for a long, long, time.”

From the Chamber offices in the Oak Cliff tower, Stimson points to maps depicting Bishop Arts and much of the surrounding Oak Cliff area—and is downright giddy as he traces the path of the upcoming DART shuttle service set to begin in November. The free shuttle will ferry visitors from downtown hotels and the convention center to Bishop Arts and surrounding North Oak Cliff venues. A streetcar system is set to debut in 2015. Keep reading.

In addition to the growing convenience of living in the area, Bishop Arts is hope to some amazing restaurants and unique shopping experiences. Here are a few of our favorite places to go in this hip neighborhood!
