Dallas Texas: Dinner And A Show In Deep Ellum

Dallas Texas is a sprawling behemoth of a city. Large and spread out, it seemingly takes 45 minutes to drive anywhere you want to go and then another 45 minutes to make it to the next place. As large as it feels though, we loved hanging out downtown, in Deep Ellum. What’s Deep Ellum like? It’s home to some great restaurants and the music venue The Bomb Factory. It’s also full of hipster bars, Instagram walls, obscure paper supply stores, and succulent plant shops. Armed with just my iPhone for pictures, here’s our evening that ended with seeing The Killers play a fantastic show.

Deep Ellum is a cool neighborhood, filled with shops and restaurants.

So many hipster shops…

The night started off with dinner and drinks at Ruins. Yes, that’s a cricket in my glass and yes, I ate it.

Gooseberries in Charise’s mezcal drink.

The tacos were seriously good at Ruins.

We didn’t think people were lining up yet for the show because this was the side of the building we could see from the restaurant.

We saw how wrong we were once we walked around the corner.

Long line, but it moved quick.

The Killers put on an awesome show.

Brandon Flowers has so much energy!

Confetti drop.

Conclusion

In all honesty, Dallas isn't our favorite city. We find it to be too spread out and sterile feeling. But places like Deep Ellum make us want to give it another chance. The restaurants and shops were unique and fun. Plus The Killers put on a great show at The Bomb Factory. Have you ever been to Dallas? What do you think about it? Do you like The Killers?
