Uptown is a thriving neighborhood popular amongst the Gen Y and Gen Xers. New developments for urban living and the development of thriving retail stores and a vibrant restaurant and nightlife makes Uptown ideal for those who want to be close to the action.
Uptown is adjacent to Oak Lawn and runs from downtown along Highway 75 up to Highland Park. Hotel ZaZa, the Crescent, the Ritz-Carlton and lots of trendy places “to see and be seen” populate the area.
Uptown is also home to the trendy West Village shopping/retail/residential development and features high-rise living along McKinney with units for sale and for lease. Buildings here feature 1930s-style architecture with modern interiors.
Uptown has three shopping districts, and all are accessible on the free trolley shuttle line. The historic Gallery District has many of the finest art galleries, antique dealers, frame shops and custom retail stores found in Dallas. Another arts venue, the McKinney Avenue Contemporary (also known as The MAC) is home to three live theatres: the Dallas Theatre Center, Theatre Three at the Quadrangle and Kitchen Dog Theater. Residents and local Dallasites also enjoy independent movie premieres, foreign films and movie classics at Magnolia Pictures, located in the West Village.
