Located just northwest of downtown Dallas,
the Medical District
sits right off Interstate 35 near the UT Southwestern Medical Center campus. This district gets its name from the medical offices and hospitals that cluster in this section, though apartments also dot the area due to its proximity and easy access to the inner city and outer suburbs alike. Housing options run the gamut from high-rise lofts to industrial buildings converted into unique abodes, all which cater to a wide array of inhabitants.
Locals enjoy plenty of restaurant options that range from casual barbecue joints, such as Mike Anderson's BBQ House, to fine dining at establishments such as Eddie V's Prime Seafood and Steak. The Ivory Tavern and Nana provide residents with upscale choices, while Bowlounge lets patrons play a few rounds of 10-pin while feasting on menu favorites.
