LGBTQ Fun in Dallas
The Best Gayborhood in the Country
Home to Dallas' LGBTQ community and one of the most gay-friendly neighborhoods in the country, Oak Lawn gives off a trendy vibe amongst its diverse and quaint homes. Local stores, delicious restaurants, and Texas-sized nightlife are all steps away from one another. Go boot scooting at the gay honky-tonk The Round Up Saloon, show off your pump up the volume at Station 4 or just lounge at Cedar Springs Tap House.
Check out the calendar and enjoy a performance by the Dallas Opera, the Dallas Theater Center or the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. The architecture of each of those performance halls are so elegant and are the perfect start to your evening.
The Best of Texas Cuisine
Dine at Fearing's, home to celebrity chef Dean Fearing's restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Enjoy "Elevated American Cuisine" in one of the seven indoor and outdoor dining spaces and grab a drink at the Rattlesnake Bar to try Dean's Margarita.
One of Dallas' favorite past times is weekend brunch. Find a patio and bring on the mimosas. A few favorites are HG Supply on Greenville, Breadwinners on McKinney and Toulouse on Knox.
Shop like a Legend
Shop like a Legend at the flagship Neiman Marcus department store on Main street. Afterwards, venture over to Forty-Five Ten for another original downtown shopping experience. Later, try out the newest fashions at NorthPark Center. Trust us, you won't leave empty handed.
The Warwick Melrose
Stay in unparalleled comfort steps away from all the fun in Oak Lawn at The Warwick Melrose. Make sure to stop at The Library bar to enjoy hand-crafted cocktails and upscale bites. They even have live entertainment six nights a week.
Bishop Arts District

Take in Some Fresh Air
