Arts and entertainment options keep Deep Ellum busy. A former industrial neighborhood just east of downtown Dallas, it’s now home to a variety of artists and designers. The locus of the Dallas Area Rapid Transit’s Green Line, visitors can walk to Fair Park or stroll through local shops and galleries.

Famous stops such as the Amsterdam Bar are popular with locals and tourists alike. The first cotton gin in Texas was located here (it’s now apartments) as well as a 1914-era Ford factory. Other historic buildings include the Palace Sharp and Parks Brothers Warehouse. Deep Ellum Brewing Company is located here, distributing brews across Texas. The Dallas Farmers Market is also a part of this community.
