The Ultimate Guide to Deep Ellum
Fact: Deep Ellum is the best neighborhood in Dallas.
The vibe in Uptown is very "You Can't Sit with Us," which is fine because I'd rather sit amidst the graffiti in Deep Ellum any day. Other neighborhoods like Addison and Knox/Henderson I totally dig visiting, but they still don't have the bang for your buck Deep Ellum packs.
Why I love Deep Ellum: The attached skyline image shows my view from my living room, kitchen and bedroom in my cozy little apartment. When I step outside, I have access to some of the area's coolest bars, award winning restaurants and if I ever wanted a tattoo, well, I could throw a rock and hit 783 tattoo studios.
I'm a city girl. I'd rather have a skyline view than an ocean view any day. I want to walk to everything. I hate driving, because cocktailing is one of my favorite hobbies! But guess what, all of these places are in walking distance of each other! Therefore, Deep Ellum has my heart.
