Introducing our city: Dallas


Here at a&bé bridal shop Dallas, we love our city and know after a visit to any of the following recommendations you will too. It's rich with history but developing so much right now surprising us with new experiences. From the old home tours and class of Highland Park to the music scene that can't be beat in the quirky heart of Deep Ellum there's something for everyone. Allow us to offer our recommendations the best places to eat, stay, and play near a&bé bridal shop Dallas. Whether you're planning a weekend away or even just one day if your feeling ambitious, we have planed it out for you and everything. Here we go...

Let's start with brunch. Breadwinners is a personal favorite. You step inside to experience an English oasis. The greenery-lined exposed brick walls and open ceiling greet you immediately. Pass the initial few courtyards and tucked in the back there's a basement of sorts with stain glass windows and the warmest feel to enjoy as you select your morning pastry and sip your mimosa.

After brunch (while you're still in uptown) take a hop and a skip over to Knox-Henderson street for the best local shopping near a&bé bridal shop Dallas. Bella & Chloe is a must stop for unique jewelry to take home and remember your whirlwind day in Dallas by. Gypsy Wagon is a bohemian decorator or dressers dream. Think indie-Anthropolgie and there you are! Esther Penn is a few blocks down and they capture the trends, offering them with the friendliest service you can imagine. I'd say those gals would probably have the best recommendations in town for coffee. They'll hook you up. These are just a few of many boutiques you can't go wrong ducking into. 

When you're done with all the shop and ready to drop I'd recommend a stroll in the Dallas Museum of Art for ever changing exhibits that are sure to inspire. And right across the way (we are in downtown now) is Klyde-Warren park! Built up above the highway separating midtown and downtown you have the classiest green spot with a view of the city. Live shows are often played on the weekends and there's never a shortage of food trucks to choose a snack from. It's truly a cornerstone of community in Dallas. Families, young professionals, artists, and couples alike all steal away for a moment at this spot. 

When you're ready for dinner and rooftop drinks STIRR is the hot spot for New American cuisine. The liveliest crowd in Dallas gathers to drink, eat, and be merry all year round at this fresh dining option that's become a fast favorite. 

If you're captivated by the rooftop view at STIRR you have to get to know Dallas right and make a stop at the observation deck on Reunion tower. You know that colorful ball that lights up and rotates in our skyline? It's a wonderful stop for any who love an iconic landmark or just want to get a birds eye view of the city they fell for fast. 

If you're up for experiencing the nightlife of our town, Midnight Rambler is an underground cocktail lounge in the Joule hotel! It's so much fun and just a little swanky. If you want a more gritty Dallas experience you can't go wrong in Deep Ellum. Three Links will offer you shows, Deep Ellum Brewing Company has a cozy patio and home-y feel, and the double wide covers your folksy Texas experience. 

After you've danced your night away you may need a late night slice of pie. Who doesn't? Everyone (and I mean everyone - prepare yourself for a line worth waiting in) will be at Serious Pizza. If you want to skip the hype and opt for gourmet ramen, and I don't blame you, go for Tanoshii which is on the same street but opposite end. There's so much to explore at that end of town.

To me, Dallas is known for its food and drinks, shopping, and friendly crowds. We want you to be familiar with our art and culture. There are so many galleries and museums, and live shows every night. If you ever need a more personal recommendation tailored to you just make a stop by a&bé in the heart of the design district. We'll enthusiastically reiterate these recommendations and overwhelm you with a few hundred more to help you love Dallas just as much as we do.
