The $8 Uber Ride: Where to Go
The Principal Residences offers that historic hometown feel while still being just minutes from the action of city living – it’s there when you want it and you can escape it when you don’t. Don’t want to worry about parking on your adventure into the hustle bustle? Take an Uber! For $8 or less each way, you can explore some of the best spots Dallas has to offer.
Deep Ellum – $7
This former warehouse district is now the most eclectic spot in town for live music, cool bars, casual eateries – and people watching.
This hole-in-the-wall, burger, beer and live music joint is covered front to back with memorabilia. Take time to peruse the photo collection of people who've walked through Adairs’ doors – including a blown-up photo of Elvis Presley taken back in 1955.
This punk rock bar opens early daily with 16 beers on tap and over 40 craft offerings in a can. Satisfy your punk craving with live music from local and national bands or maybe try your hand at hip-hop karaoke.
A restaurant dedicated entirely to the one food we all love: French fries. Indulge in different types of delicious, crispy fries with a variety of toppings and other fried creations, such as sliders made with waffle fries for the bun.
Lower Greenville – $7
Home to the largest St. Patrick’s Day parade and block party in the Southwest, Lower Greenville boasts an ever-changing crop of laid-back watering holes, delicious dining gems and funky shops.
HG Sply Co.
This popular dining spot offers a happening rooftop bar with stunning views of downtown Dallas, day and night. If it’s a bit of relaxation you crave, try one of their yoga on the roof events. Sometimes the fee includes brunch. Other times, it’s used as a form of donation for a local charity.
Not just a clever name. Stylized as an old “truck yard,” guests can order a drink or food from a local food truck set up in the patio, hang out in an old truck bed or among other rustic truck items.
The Granada Theater
This theater has been jumping and jiving since 1946, welcoming acts like Bob Dylan, Adele, Willie Nelson, ZZ Top and Jeff Bridges, as well as up-and-coming bands and performers. They also have a free rooftop movie series and a farm-to-table restaurant next door, Sundown at Granada.
Lakewood – $8
Nestled beside the shores of White Rock Lake, the neighborhood of Lakewood has a laid-back atmosphere with room to run and play. If you’re looking for a great place to spend a peaceful afternoon, head on over to Lakewood.
Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden
The Arboretum boasts seasonal exhibits all year long, including a huge autumn festival featuring fairytale houses made out of pumpkins. During the summer months, there’s weekly outdoor concerts perfect for a romantic evening picnic. And in the winter, there’s twinkling lights, Santa, cocoa and cookies!
Casa Linda Bakery
Serving Dallas for more than 30 years, the Casa Linda Bakery serves scratch-made cakes, cupcakes, cookies, bread, pound cakes, pies and petit fours. Whether you’re looking for a customized birthday cake that wows or you just want pastries to enjoy with your coffee, Casa Linda has something for everyone.
