Apartment Living BlogApartment Hunting › Popular Neighborhoods for Millennials in Dallas

As millennials, we want unpredictable fun and unique experiences. It’s even what we’re looking for in a Dallas neighborhood as we move into our new apartments and condos. Convenience and walkability are always important but if you can add “fun” to the list of pros, you just might have us sold. We visited four neighborhoods in Dallas that are great for millennials in search of a new nest.

Bishop Arts District/Oak Cliff

The Bishop Arts District in northern Oak Cliff has been on the rise for quite a few years. New luxury apartments are popping up to make room for new residents in this artsy part of town. You’ll find a mix of the most popular Dallas boutiques, one-of-a-kind eateries, and art galleries. Lucky you! These are your new neighbors. While quiet during the week, the Bishop Arts District really comes alive at night and on weekends. There’s even a nearby co-working space, Common Desk, for the entrepreneur millennial.

Deep Ellum

An edgier neighborhood that is attracting millennials is Deep Ellum. Loft-style apartments with the coveted exposed brick and pipes are waiting for you! On most blocks, find walls of graffiti and art that reflect the great artists of Dallas and are popular for Instagram photo ops. Looking for nightlife? Hit some of the best entertainment spots and bars such as Armoury D.E. and The Bomb Factory, if you’re looking for an unforgettable night of fun. Perhaps even pick up a late night donut from Glazed Donut Works into the wee hours of the morning.

Lower Greenville

For the foodie millennial, Lower Greenville is a must-stay. There are condos and apartments galore within walking distance of this foodie playground. From door-to-door, you will find a different restaurant, so there is absolutely a spot that every person can enjoy. Try everything from cajun seafood at Ragin Crab, to tacos at Yucatan Taco Stand, to American cuisine at Remedy. Need something sweet to finish your restaurant crawl? Grab an organic craft popsicle from the highly popular Steel City Pops. There’s even a Trader Joe’s grocery store in the midst of it all!

Located just north of downtown Dallas, Uptown is the place to be. For those who may work downtown or simply want to live within close proximity, this area is great. Many Dallas millennials don’t feel that downtown is as active and live, so you will definitely get more action here. You’ll be surrounded by corporate execs and chic spots. Plus, some of the hottest networking events are held here. Uptown is not shy when it comes to happy hour spots to kickback after a long workday, so make sure you get there first! If you live near McKinney Avenue, the M-Line Trolley is just a hop, skip, and a jump away to whisk you downtown which is an excellent way to save a little gas money.
