Just north of Uptown, the Knox/Henderson area of Dallas is really the gateway to downtown. It’s a pedestrian-friendly neighborhood, just a walk away from the Katy Trail, which stretches all the way down to the American Airlines Center downtown and is perfect for hiking, biking and even rollerblading. In addition to quirky bars and restaurants featuring everything from gourmet hot dogs to Greek cuisine, there’s shopping to be done at variety of furniture stores, antique shops, and clothing boutiques. There are outdoor sidewalk cafes, such as Cafe Madrid or Toulouse. Visit cafe Veracruz with its authentic Mexican cuisine. Don’t forget little Katana on Travis Street — the steak and sushi is delicious. You can party at the Old Monk, it’s a quaint pub that offers a delicious menu.
Shop at Crate & Barrel, Pottery Barn, and Restoration Hardware all in the heart of the neighborhood. Do you prefer hunting for your treasures? To the east of highway 75 on Henderson there’s amazing second-hand stores like Buffalo Exchange where you can browse vintage goodies.
Apartments and living options around the Knox/Henderson neighborhood definitely reflect the multitude of recent renovations. There’s no shortage of options with modern spacious living areas within walking distance. As many apartments have just been built or recently renovated you’ll find great amenities and updated appliances in the majority of units.
