Best Apartments Near Nightlife: Walk to the Bar and Stumble Home!

Drinking and driving is anything but cool. Like, duh comes to mind, right? Sure, we like taking our own vehicles to our fave hangout bars and restaurants so that we have the freedom of leaving whenever we want (or staying, if our friends decide to dip out early). And we really like drinking at our fave hang out spots – but the combination of the two? Gross. Don’t do that.

Save yourself from the headache and dangers – to you, others, and your bank account – of driving under the influence, and live in a place that’s walking distance to your go-to weekend shenanigans. If you gravitate toward Dish on Cedar Springs for a boozey Sunday brunch, we have the perfect spot that is literally 20 steps from its front door. Or if the new Uptown bar and restaurant Fat Rabbit is calling your name for a vodka tonic-enhanced Friday night, we’ve got a pad for you to crash at right around the corner.

No matter which area you prefer to get rowdy in, we can find you a home that’s easy to walk back to, even with your darkest of beer-goggles on.

Uptown:

Two years old with an ideal location close to all the best McKinney Avenue dining and drinking destinations, this property is calling all Uptowners. Walk the Katy Trail (and, subsequently, to Katy Trail Ice House and Company Café, of course), or to burgers at Hopdoddy, or to brunch at Bread Winners, or to drinks at Social House… I think we’ve made our point.
Prices start at $1,260 per month. 

Oak Lawn:

This stylish and recently built property is pleasantly situated on the Cedar Springs Strip, right above some fabulous retail and restaurants – including, but not limited to, a sushi and saki spot, a nail salon with complimentary cocktails, and a delish, fresh comfort food restaurant with drag show brunches. Thinking about canceling your lease to snag this for your next home? Call us, honey!
Prices start at $1,150 per month.

Knox/Henderson:

Plum in the middle of all of Henderson Avenue’s spectacular eateries, pubs, and boutiques, this contemporary, loft-style apartment complex allows you to walk just about anywhere in the area. Even though it’s on the Henderson side of K/H, venturing over to Knox is easy with a minimum-fare Uber or, if you’ve really been knocking them back, a leisurely and slightly longer stroll down the street.
Prices start at $1,166 per month.

Downtown:

Whether you need a studio apartment or a multi-bedroom penthouse, this loft property has got the downtown space that’s perfect for you.  And no matter which of the three historic buildings you choose to reside in, no matter what, you will be within an easy walk to some of downtown Dallas’ best restaurants and most bumpin’ clubs.
Prices start at $1,100 per month.

Deep Ellum:

Hellooo, Cane Rosso pizza and Merlot every night of the week. In your dreams, right? Wrong. That dream can be reality at this urban-luxury Deep Ellum property. (Now, if only calories didn’t count while living here.) Also within walking distance? Local music venue, Trees; Serious Pizza (because you can never have too much pizza, amirite?); home of the wildest Bloody Mary’s, Anvil Pub; and a sweet rooftop bar, The Green Room.
Prices start at $1,025 per month.

See? Walking to and from the bars is definitely not a bad thing when you can live in apartments like these. If you’re a proponent of drinking and NOT driving (which everyone who’s reading this better be!), then we’ve got your next apartment home hookup. Call or text us at 214-586-0519 if you want to live somewhere awesome and walk to all your favorite hangouts.
