This doesn’t include the daytime population that inhabits the office buildings of the district, including of course, the redesigned and renovated Trammell Crow Center. But let’s say you’re working at Trammell Crow Center and you’d like to stick around after work to grab a bite to eat, a drink (or two), and then catch a show? You’re in luck. Not only are there a plethora of amazing restaurant and cocktail options just a quick walk away, you’re also right next to some of the best entertainment venues like the Winspear Opera House, the Wyly Theater, the Meyerson Symphony Center, the Moody Performance Hall, and many more.
We’re going to preview what’s in store in and around the Arts District for the next few months so that you can plan ahead (and know which mornings you may not want to schedule that early morning client meeting).
