The Knox-Henderson neighborhood is just North of Downtown near the SMU Campus and the expensive homes in Highlands Park. Known for its lively bar and restaurant scene, Knox-Henderson attracts people from all over central Dallas. Since the entire neighborhood is only a few blocks, most people just park their cars and hop from bar to bar. In addition to its nightlife, Knox-Henderson is also one of the oldest shopping hot-spots in Dallas. Although most of the buildings were remodeled in the mid 1990’s, several stores have remained true to their historic roots.
Knox-Henderson Apartments and Neighborhoods
The Knox-Henderson neighborhood offers a unique variety of dining options to suit all tastes and budgets. Highland Park Soda Fountain is a must if you haven’t been. Since 1912 this staple has been cranking out sodas, sundaes and sandwiches without letting anything get in their way. Velvet Taco has some killer specials with chicken being a hit and any kind of out of the box tacos you can think of. We are thinking chicken tikka tacos! Villa O has some great italian food, but we are not just limited there. They have anything from shrimp crepes to french toast with their fabulous brunch menu with plenty of cocktail options also. Not to mention the large people watching patio. This area is definitely a happening place with an awesome vibe.
