While Texas may not receive that picturesque winter wonderland snow during the holiday months, that doesn’t mean we Dallasites are walking around Grinching it up every year. We still know how to get into the holiday spirit!
Once you’re done decking your own halls for the season, throw on your silver bells and head over to the Dallas Design District to enjoy the most wonderful time of the year.
Still have gifts to buy? Let the DDD help you check off at least a few people on that list. Shop unique home accessories from shops like Again & Again and Uncommon Market. If you've got a crystal lover in your life, make sure you stop by Empressive GeoDesigns for beautiful display pieces, lamps and even tables. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. With our abundance of furniture shops, galleries and boutiques, you’re bound to find something to get your holiday shopping squared away at the DDD.
All that shopping is bound to make you hungry. Good thing you’re already in the Dallas Design District! Grab some avocado toast and a coffee from Ascension Coffee for something quick. If you have a little more time on your hands, enjoy the traditional gaucho pizzeria experience at Delucca. There’s no menu — you just sit down and eat as many slices of the different handcrafted pies the servers have to offer at a fixed price. If you're feeling fancy, make a reservation at Oak — a DDD favorite — to indulge in some world-class fine dining. And go ahead and make your holiday just a little less stressful by ordering a Christmas goose while you’re there.
Don’t forget the fun! You know what they say about all work and no play. If getting your sweat on is your jam, there’s no shortage of workout opportunities for you in the DDD, from yoga at BalancingEnergy Health & Yoga Center to pilates at Dallas Pilates. Or stop by Delivery Fitness to get the expertise and attention of a personal trainer.
Or maybe there’s nothing more exciting to you than the thought of expanding your skill set. Try a cooking class at The Cookery, or sign up for glass-blowing classes at Dallas Glass Art. Imagine how exciting it will be to give your loved ones gifts made by you! And of course, for some good, old-fashioned fun, nothing beats the vintage bowling lanes at Bowlounge.
What better way to wind up the night than with a relaxing glass of vino or a local craft beer? Grab a unique creation at the Meddlesome Moth, or swing by the Noble Rey Brewing Company for tasty beers with fun names like Yub Nub and Barampus. Or pull off the ultimate Irish goodbye with an Irish Goodbye at Peticolas Brewing Company.
No matter what you need or want this season, the shops and showrooms at the DDD can help turn your hectic holiday slump into happy holiday cheers!
