McKinney Avenue is the “main street” of this neighborhood, located just northeast of downtown. McKinney runs along the historic McKinney Avenue Trolley line where visitors can still take a free ride from the north end of Uptown, to the Dallas Arts District downtown. This area experienced a surge of residential growth and an influx of high-end hotels as it evolved into the place in Dallas to see and be seen. This chic but historic area (the State-Thomas neighborhood, part of the district, is 125 years old and home to numerous historic homes) is now Dallas’ nightlife capital. Park your car and visit one of Uptown’s dozens of high-end restaurants, trendy nightclubs and bars along with unique shopping, world-class spas and Dallas’ most desirable residential living. Highlights include Dean Fearing’s namesake restaurant, Fearing’s, and Stanley Korshak, a Dallas-only high-end department store, all located within a beautifully walkable neighborhood. While you’re in the area check out West Village, a shopping destination for the younger set with trendsetting boutiques, vintage collections, art galleries, a wide variety of unique restaurants, popular nightlife and a Magnolia movie theater. It’s almost a district in and of itself!
