The Dallas Design District isn't just an industry destination for the best designers in Dallas. Whether you choose to peruse a showroom or gallery, enjoy a delectable meal or relish a handcrafted cocktail, the DDD is packed with opportunities to unwind and create lasting memories, making it an obvious choice for an unforgettable date night.
With so many exciting restaurants, shops and activities to choose from, why not curate a night out that incorporates several destinations rather than just one? Craft your next date night to take advantage of all that DDD has to offer — including convenient parking and easy walkability.
Break the Ice
Whether it’s a first date or a night out with an old flame, kicking off with drinks and appetizers is a great way to ease into a memorable evening. Meddlesome Moth offers an enormous beer menu featuring over a hundred options of draught and bottled beer. Enjoy Dallas’ great year-round weather at Wheelhouse, where a large patio immerses you in the action while you nosh on adventurous small plates and refreshing craft cocktails. Or keep it low-key and local at the Texas Ale Project, where you can sip beers to your heart's content.
The Main Course
After sampling some of the lighter fare, you’ll want to settle in for dinner, and at the DDD, there are plentiful options. Oak offers a diverse menu featuring classic dishes alongside more creative cuisine. Whether you decide to go with fish, steak or lamb, be sure to pair your meal with something from the extensive wine list. If you prefer casual eats to fine dining, Pie Tap Pizza Workshop + Bar couples a variety of pizza options alongside its favorite companion: beer. For the complete date night package, revel in Dallas’ breathtaking skyline while enjoying modern American dishes at Foxyco.
Take In the Sights
No trip to DDD is complete without a visit to one of the district's dozens of art galleries, which feature pieces ranging in style from contemporary to Art Deco. You just might discover your next favorite artist at places like the Christopher Martin Gallery while enjoying the experience with your favorite person. Get in on the action with an impromptu glass blowing class at Dallas Glass Art to make your own masterpiece.
A Night Cap
Close out a terrific date night with dessert or after-dinner drinks. Head over to Sassetta for some gourmet Italian sweet treats or a decadent dessert cocktail in a romantic atmosphere. Or, on those hot summer evenings, finish the night out at Pop Star Handcrafted Popsicles.
One date night at DDD simply won’t be enough, and with so many options, each occasion is guaranteed to be a special one.
