Deep Ellum

Nestled east of downtown Dallas, Deep Ellum was established as Freedman’s Town by former slaves after the Civil War. In the 1880s, the area was considered too far from downtown Dallas to be a reputable address, but today, it is an eclectic entertainment district with a funky style comprising avant-garde shops, nightclubs, art galleries, restaurants, and loft and apartment developments. People who live here tend to eschew traditional styles and embrace the unique.  The area is a hot spot to capture the perfect picture at one of the many street art wall murals that are scattered throughout the neighborhood.
