The Dallas Arts District

Our neighborhood: a playground for patrons of the arts

The Dallas Arts District is the largest contiguous urban arts district in the nation, with more buildings designed by Pritzker-winning architects than anywhere else. We’re proud that our 10-acre campus is the gateway to acres and acres of imagination and community.

On our campus and the neighboring city streets, you’ll find some of the finest performance venues and arts collections in the world, top-notch restaurants and bars, inviting outdoor parks for family time or quiet reflection, premier hotels and more.


Whether you’re looking for a bite to eat before, during or after your show, the Center and the surrounding neighborhood are bustling with options. From quick bites and convenient meals to fine dining and cocktails just a stroll from your seats, you’ll find the perfect pairing for your visit downtown.
