Places We Love: Dallas Arts District

At DETATE, we eat, sleep and breathe modern – art included. Known for the angular-shaped Meyerson Symphony Center, luxurious Winspear Opera House and beautifully designed museums, the Arts District in Downtown Dallas is a prime location for fine-dining, culture and entertainment. The walkable hub of creativity spans over 20 square blocks and encompasses 68 acres, making it the largest urban arts district in the United States. Interested in exploring the area? Get the scoop on the district’s latest happenings and top spots below:


Nasher Café, the five-star restaurant home to Wolfgang Puck, is a city favorite to many Dallas tourists and residents alike. The restaurant gets its name from the world-class Nasher Sculpture Center, which sits directly in front of the café. Located off Flora Street, Nasher Café offers signature pizzas, gourmet sandwiches and much more. The interior may seem simple in appearance, but the cuisine is far from it!


Along with the Nasher Sculpture Center, the Arts District is home to one of the largest museums in America, The Dallas Museum of Art. The museum covers over 5,000 years of history and showcases a full range of cultures around the world. From live exhibits, concerts and lectures, the museum serves as a catalyst for creativity, diversity and community engagement for all ages. Even better? It’s free to the public!


Recognized as America’s finest opera house, the Winspear Opera House is a reimagined design of the traditional “horseshoe” shape. Winspear is home to The Dallas Opera and the Texas Ballet Theatre, hosting other performances, such as Broadway shows and concerts. Upon arrival, be sure to lose yourself in the beauty of the Moody Foundation Chandelier. Located inside the performance hall, the one-of-a-kind accessory has 318 “twinkle” rods and hangs 50 feet below the ceiling!
