Downtown Dallas

Sophisticated City Life
Downtown Dallas is a constantly growing community, emerging as a perfect place for work, life, and play. For professionals living downtown and interested in a care-free lifestyle, there’s no better place to live. Revitalized buildings are now home to apartments, townhomes, entertainment centers and farmer markets. The neighborhood offers excellent public transit (Rapid Transit (DART) rail and bus system), making it a great option for people who are frequent commuters to and from their office. Downtown Dallas is home to the extravagant Reunion Tower - a great place to enjoy outdoor viewing via telescopes, or enjoy a bit of casual or fine dining.

Downtown offers plenty of socializing amidst a bustling city. Restaurants include Meso Maya Comida Y Copas, Mirador, and Cafe Momentum. All are highly-rated and loved by the residents of Downtown. Nightlife is right at residents’ doorstep, with happy hours only minutes away. These include The Crafty Irishman Public House, 3 Eleven Kitchen and Cocktails, and City Tavern. On the border of Downtown Dallas is a not-to-be-missed park - Klyde Warren Park - a beautiful green space in the middle of downtown, great for music, food trucks, cultural events, and art. Downtown Dallas is perfect for anyone looking to live in the midst of city action.

Downtown Dallas — 7.9/10 Rating (based on 8 neighborhood reviews)
It’s amazing as a social scene! The neighborhood has a lot to offer in terms of food and entertainment. The only downside to the neighborhood is it does have a large homeless population and as a female, I just always make sure I am walking back home with a friend just to be safe. I have never felt unsafe and have loved experiencing all that Downtown and Deep Ellum have to offer.

Downtown is still tiny. It has no grocery store but businesses are slowly filling in and residents seem to be coming as soon as units become available. Give it a chance, it's a great place to be if you're not into traffic and living in your car.

So far I like living in Downtown. There isn't a TON of things to do but there are bars and restaurants and it's not far from Deep Ellum and Uptown where there are a lot of options. Both DART and bus stations are nearby, and direct access to almost any interstate since they all cross downtown, which is convenient.

I have always slept with earplugs but I don't find Downtown Dallas to be particularly noisy at night. There are a lot of sirens from fire/ambulance but there is not a lot of noise from people being rowdy at night. There is obviously more on the weekends but still not enough to really be a bother. If you move to a downtown area, more noise than in a suburban neighborhood is to be expected.

Disappointing things about downtown: there is no grocery store! There is a CVS and several 7/11s but no grocery store in walking distance.

Close to downtown, deep ellum, and farmers market. Area is up and coming meaning there are still a lot of homeless people who roam but in general I feel fine with it. It's nice to not be in a cookie cutter part of Dallas like Uptown.

Very Walkable, however, there are homeless people that drift and wander around, but they never bother me
