Deep Ellum Neighborhood Guide

Lively · Gritty · Urban · Musical


Locals call Deep Ellum “a neighborhood with soul.” This gritty Dallas entertainment district is the place to go for thumping live music with roots dating back to 1884. In fact, the neighborhood rose to fame as a blues and jazz hot spot, showcasing acts like Blind Lemon Jefferson, Huddie "Leadbelly" Ledbetter, and Bessie Smith.


Today, you’ll find famous headliners taking center stage, coupled with a hopping bar scene and some of the most-talked-about food around.


However, the neighborhood is currently undergoing a renaissance and is turning a corner into new territory, becoming a cross between historic preservation and shiny new development. Here, ground breaks on new apartment homes regularly, and innovative retail space mixed in with tree-lined brick buildings now define its landscape. The wide sidewalks and hidden haunts remain, ensuring Deep Ellum’s unique character will stay intact.



Deep Ellum got it's name from black railroad workers that worked on the railroad crossing in the area in the 1860s. As is the case today, "Elm" street is the area's main artery through to Downtown, and Ellum is a result of the pronunciation of Elm with a deep southern drawl.
