Oak Lawn, a neighborhood full of contrasts, thrives on its colorful atmosphere and lush locale. It sits nestled between Highland Park, Uptown, and Turtle Creek, and its Rosewood Mansion is the only five-star hotel in Dallas. The area also brought Tex-Mex to the masses with the opening of the very first El Chico in the 1940’s.
Today, bars and nightclubs fill the neighborhood, some DJ-driven, others centered on good-time karaoke and vivacious drag shows. The folks who live here enjoy the good life with hiking and biking trails running alongside the beautifully landscaped greenspace of Turtle Creek and Oak Lawn Park. For those who love to throw a good bash, Arlington Hall events venue provides the perfect space.
For adventurous adults, the Annual Pride Parade and famous Oak Lawn Halloween Block Party on Cedar Springs Road are the see-and-be-seen social events of the year. Other high notes include charming duplexes and condos, as well as luxurious apartments and townhomes with prime views of Turtle Creek.
