Neighborhood: Uptown

An area of Dallas ripe with beautiful 20-somethings with good jobs, Uptown is known as one of the most walkable live-work neighborhoods in Dallas proper. Note – the area has a lush amount of 5-star restaurants, bars and some of the best shopping in the city, but it’s probably one of the most douchey neighborhoods as well.

Uptown is an 8 minute drive and 30 minute walk.

The Mckinney Ave Trolley takes you from downtown through uptown for free. 

It does have some stand out winners though, including Stanley Korshak, the Crescent, Breadwinners, the Quarter Bar, West Village, Yumilicious, Komali and Mr. Mesero.

D Magazine has put together a great site detailing the neighborhoods in Dallas. From local insights, new developments and best-of highlights, they’ve put together a rich resource for visitors and locals to explore the city. Their neighborhood guide to Uptown restaurants, attractions, shopping, bars and clubs is here:
