Deep Ellum

hotels near deep ellum dallas

The cultural ties of Deep Ellum (a name that evolved from "Deep Elm Street") date back to 1884, when the Dallas neighborhood was known for its blues and jazz music scene. Artists like Blind Lemon Jefferson, Huddie “Leadbelly” Ledbetter, Bessie Smith, and more were just some of the legends to take the stage at bars and clubs in Deep Ellum.

Today, Deep Ellum is a collection of graffitied buildings that houses not just some of the most exceptional live music in the state of Texas, but also tattoo parlors, craft breweries, theaters, restaurants, and loft-like living spaces. It’s where the locals and out-of-towners alike go to drink, eat, jam, and dance until the wee hours. It’s also where you can spend a morning at brunch filling up after a long night or an afternoon strolling with a specialty coffee and checking out the vibrant street murals. And since it’s only a mile from our hotel, there’s no excuse not to absorb the energy from Deep Ellum!

AT&T Stadium

You won’t find an NFL fanbase as passionate and as large as the Dallas Cowboys. No, seriously, you won’t. The Dallas Cowboys fans hold the number one spot in the NFL fanbase power rankings, and owner Jerry Jones created a stadium to match. AT&T Stadium is located about 20 miles outside of downtown because there was no room to fit it in the city limits! It’s the fifth-largest NFL stadium and it is home to the world’s 24th-largest high definition video screen, which stretches 60 yards. You won’t miss a play, unless you’re distracted by the throngs of body-painted fans!

AT&T Stadium also hosts college sports championships, Monster Jam, world-class concerts, and tons of other thrilling events throughout the year. To see what's happening during your stay, check out the AT&T Stadium event calendar.
