Though still better known as an entertainment district featuring many of Dallas’ best bars and restaurants, Lower Greenville has recently cleaned up its rough-and-tumble reputation to become a close-knit community of residents committed to making their neighborhood even better. And, yes, many of them are usually up for a night out in the heart of the city.

What the Locals Say About Lower Greenville

Locals Love

That they can walk to their favorite neighborhood joint and back home again after an evening of throwing back a cocktail or three.

Locals Complain

Departing patrons of nearby drinking establishments have been known at times to relieve themselves on neighborhood lawns. One community gadfly (who has since moved) made it his mission to publish photographs online of people he caught in the midst of such acts.

Private-Public Partnership

Property owners agreed to the creation of a planned-development district—requiring special-use permits for businesses opened past midnight—in the most southernmost portion of the neighborhood (Lowest Greenville) that has led to a renaissance.
