An independent entertainment district in a historic neighborhood, Dallas’ Bishop Arts District is the perfect destination for any group. Groups of all ages can enjoy the shopping, dining, and artistic opportunities offered in the Bishop Arts District with its small-town feel, young artsy vibe, community events, and friendly environment.
With over 60 independent stores, boutiques, shops, cafes, restaurants, and art galleries, the Bishop Arts District has something for everyone. Enjoy a nice day store hopping through Artisan’s Collective, an art gallery featuring the works of over a hundred local artists, or Fete-ish, a quirky shop selling odd art, cute collectibles, and more. Apparel is sold at a number of stores including Indigo 1745, Just Add Jeans, and Epiphany but there’s more to Bishop than just clothes. Men have something to look forward to at M’Antiques where staff collect antiques that appeal to men from vintage movie posters to antique guns and more. Other stores ply local artisanal furniture, homemade bath soaps, lotions, candles, and more. You never know what you might find here, and that’s half the fun!
The other half of Bishop’s charm lies in its delectable food choices. From traditional, down-home Texan cooking to five-star quality cuisine, Bishop has it all. Try Emporium Pies or Oddfellows for some mouthwatering ice cream and dessert goodies or even the cute and clever Dude, Sweet Chocolate. Bocce, Pho 88, Hattie’s, and Boulevardier offer an impressive range of cuisine for a number of budgets. You might be sorely tempted to blow through your vacation money on a fancy meal!
Part of Bishop’s small town feel comes from their community events. Street performers, parades, and festival events may pop up at any moment to keep you on your toes and smiling. Most events are, however, regularly scheduled and posted online for reference.
