The Winspear Opera House in the Dallas Arts District is nationally recognized as one of America’s finest opera houses. Built specifically for opera, musical, and ballet performances, it is in the shape of a traditional “horseshoe” opera house and can accommodate up to 2,200 people.

Klyde Warren Park

Dallas gets a lot of sunshine—more than the national average. If you and your group find yourselves in the city on a sunny day, we recommend heading over to Klyde Warren Park in the Dallas Arts District. Whether you want to take a free outdoor yoga class, take your group to the putting green or jam out to some live music, there’s something for everyone at Klyde Warren Park.

Crow Museum of Asian Art

Address: 2010 Flora St, Dallas, TX 75201

Phone: (214) 979-6430

You don’t have to fly across the world to appreciate Asian arts and culture. The Crow Museum of Asian Art in the Dallas Arts District features exhibitions that promote learning and dialogue around Asian art from both ancient and contemporary eras. Through a variety of permanent and rotating exhibitions, groups can truly experience all that Asia has to offer, right in the heart of Dallas. Plus, this museum is free to the public!

 

Savor

Address: 2000 Woodall Rodgers Fwy, Dallas, TX 75201

Phone: (214) 306-5597

Not all of our recommendations are going to be based around the museums and parks to see in the Dallas Arts District. Some of them are going to be around food. That’s because the restaurants in Dallas don’t mess around, especially in the Arts District.

If your group finds yourselves hungry after enjoying Klyde Warren Park, we recommend heading over to Savor, a modern gastropub located inside the park. The restaurant is perfect for groups of all sizes because they specialize in shared plates. If your group plans on having a boozy brunch or knocking back a few brews after dinner, we recommend hiring private transportation to ensure you get to and from the restaurant safely. Don’t worry about trying to find a DD—Longhorn Charter Bus can take care of that for you.

Akai

Address: 1740 Crockett St, Dallas, TX 75201

Phone: (214) 444-5357

What do you think of when you hear the term “speakeasy”? Do your ears immediately perk up? If that’s the case, then you’ll want to take your group to Akai in the Dallas Arts District. This new, secret bar opened in early 2019, and it can be accessed through the front of Musume, a local restaurant.

Once you walk through the restaurant, take a left and walk through the kitchen and past the storage area. When you see the white cinderblock wall, hang a right and then take a final left into a red tomb. This is the front of Akai.

The cocktail menu is filled with fun and refreshing drinks with an Asian twist, including a green-tea-infused whisky drink and a cucumber sake.
