The Cedars is a unique neighborhood just south of Dallas that was developed in the late 1800’s. As a neighborhood that used to be the home for light industry, many old warehouses have been converted into modern lofts. One in particular consists of 3 buildings that were converted from the 1950’s Art Deco movie theater, a 1940’s nightclub that once was managed by the notorious Jack Ruby, and a 1923 soda bottling company from the 1920’s & 1930’s. It doesn’t get much cooler than that!
The Cedars neighborhood sits on approximately 200 acres connected by 5 bridges to downtown Dallas. This area has a mix of residential lofts, businesses and is also home to the Dallas Police Headquarters. This is a hip area evolving into Dallas’ newest edgy art district. If you’re really into history or just want to see Dallas as it used to be, check out the Dallas Heritage Village. There are great places to eat like Cedar Socials with their comfort food classic cocktails and bottomless mimosas. It’s one of the best places to brunch on a Sunday morning.
Lee Harvey’s is a great place to grab a burger and beer with picnic bench yard seating. For a night on the town head to the South Side Ballroom for some dancing and good music.
