New artistic hangouts, some of the best kept secrets in Dallas

The Deep Ellum and Bishop Arts Districts, The Power Station or The Warehouse... Dallas overflows with trendy spots.

Just like in Brooklyn's Williamsburg, coolness abounds in these former industrial sites reinvented as art districts, replete with street art, concept stores and converted warehouses full of galleries and bars.
A cradle for jazz and blues and in full rebirth since 2010, Deep Ellum is the official name of this district—after the local pronunciation of Deep Elm Street was adopted. The area showcases small brick buildings, graffitied walls, tattoo parlours, barbershops, drugstores, trendy thrift shops and live music venues to “discover music, explore art and expect the unexpected”.
Not far away, The Power Station, a former transformer of the Dallas Power & Light Company, is now an experimental and contemporary art space. Three times a year, young artists have carte blanche to produce their creations. In the hippie-suffused historical Bishop Arts District, southwest of the city centre, check out the coffee shops, bookstores, art galleries, independent stores and “Made in Texas” cider tastings. The Warehouse Dallas, on the way, is a 2,000 m² modern art gallery opened in 2012 on the outskirts of Downtown Dallas, where the exceptional contemporary works and exhibitions rival major museums.
