Located on the southwest side of Dallas, Oak Cliff is home to a growing cadre of artists, musicians, top-tier restaurants and offbeat shopping destinations, all happily existing in the shadow of the big city. At its center is the popular Bishop Arts District teaming with notable restaurants such as Lucia and Hattie’s and specialty retailers like Dude, Sweet Chocolate and The Book Doctor. Nearby neighbors enjoy ageless estates and renovated cottages nestled in the rolling hills of Kessler Park. The area is surrounded greenery at Kidd Springs Park and no less than four public and private golf courses which create a park-like setting for all to enjoy. The Dallas Zoo is located in Oak Cliff, as is the popular Kessler Theater, which hosts many independent film and music festivals throughout the year.
