Bishop Arts

Located in the Southwest side of Dallas, Bishop Arts is an eclectic community filled with shops, restaurants, and residences.  It’s one of our favorite places in the city to spend a day shopping, sight-seeing and dining!

1. Shop Dallas Bishop Arts has some great and unique shops, like The Laughing Willow, Mantiques, Dirt, Fete-ish, A J Vagabonds, Blue Dahlia, Bishop Street Market and many, many more!

2. Eat

If only there were more than 3 meals in a day!  Where to eat in Bishop Arts is usually the hardest decision!  We love the Dallas Grilled Cheese Co., which makes some incredibly non-childlike sandwiches!  Another favorite is Eno’s Pizzaria Tavern, with our favorite booth draped overhead by a lit up tree!  Hunky’s also one of the most requested by my kids, a fun, 50’s style diner and old fashioned soda fountain!

3. Drink

Head over to Ten Bell’s Tavern, a unique, British-inspired bar with great atmosphere and late night menu! 

Bishop Cider Co. moved their brewery to the Dallas Design District, and at the same time opening their Cidercade all-you-can-play-arcade, but they still have a tasting room at their original Bishop location.
