Lowest Greenville

3 / 10

A decade ago, Lower Greenville in northeast Dallas was dominated by seedy bars and late-night clubs—a strange fit for a neighborhood filled with charming residential streets lined with craftsman-style houses. But recently, groups of the city's creative class have spotted potential behind the grit, and it's now the city's top stop one-of-a-kind restaurants, cocktail bars and a grossing retail scene that eschews the big chains. Despite the gentrification, Lower Greenville has maintained its casual, rough-around-the-edges vibe. And nowhere is this more apparent than at the neighborhood's southern base, which has become a de facto HQ for Dallas' young, up-and-coming chefs (along with a high concentration of yogis and artists). Here, our favorite finds on the pedestrian-friendly streets of this swath of Lower Greenville—the blocks of which have been dubbed Lowest Greenville by its tight-knit residents.
