Over The River…
Recently 500 West joined in to feature drawings, paintings, video, photography, sound, sculpture and site-specific installations by Master of Fine Arts candidates in art programs at SMU, TCU, UNT, UTA and UTD. You’ll find these displays at one of the fabulous warehouses on the West side.
You’ll not only enjoy great tunes from the Wold Music Stage (find the line-up here), but you’ll also be able to taste the delicious food that the area has to offer including soon to be neighbors, Cox Farms Market (coming soon to Sylvan/Thirty), Four Corners Brewery and Matador Meat Company.
Those of you that have never ventured West of the Trinity will find some of the best restaurants in Dallas just blocks away from the bridge! Plan to spend the day “on the other side” and check out some of my favorites!
SMOKE sits just below the hot, historic Belmont Hotel and has been written up in publications from Food and Wine to Bon Appetite! They’re known for lip-smakin’ BBQ, unlike any you’ve had before! Check out this video to see what you’ve been missing.
Just up the hill beside SMOKE is Bar Belmont, home of the best view of the Dallas skyline – and now the new Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge! This is truly one of those places that you don’t want everyone to know about because you don’t want to wait for hours to get in when everyone discovers this amazing place! They have a great drink menu, as well as hearty appetizers via SMOKE.
The Foundry Bar is a new venture by the owners of SMOKE and Bar Belmont, so it’s sure to be a hit! Located in the cool 3 acre lot at Fort Worth Ave. and Pittman, this indoor/outdoor venue is the place we’ll all want to be in a few weeks when patio season hits! I’m looking forward to kicking back here and listening to some live music with friends..
Just a few more blocks south and you’re in the Bishop Arts District…which is another full post of shopping and restaurant favorites! (Go to my archives and search Bishop Arts District for more info)
Please contact me if you have any questions about the area! I love sharing my favorites!
Will I see you at Bridge-o-Rama?
