Bishop Arts District,
We know Dallas has great options for you. You could have your event in the center of the hustle and bustle of Downtown Dallas in a fancy ballroom or ritzy hotel deck.

These options exist and are wonderful. OR, you can try something new and do something different. Come to the Bishop Arts District.
Why Bishop Arts? It’s a place to have fun, to find inspiration and to shop for unique things. It’s where you go out for a date, for lunch, for coffee, for a walk... It’s where you go to live and love. Just three miles from Downtown Dallas, the Bishop Arts District is where you come to get real and DIRT Flowers and House of DIRT are all about getting real.
