I absolutely love living and working in Uptown! If you are not familiar with the area, Uptown is a fun, lively and upscale area within Dallas, Texas. It used to be a rather impoverished area but was developed as part of a public improvement initiative to be a pedestrian friendly portion of the city. As a result it ended up being an area with several hair salons, office buildings, restaurants, apartment communities, stores, hotels, shopping centers, bars and night clubs. Residents and visitors alike will revel in the abundance of attractions that Uptown has to offer. Many residents of Uptown Dallas live, work and entertain themselves right here within the district. There is a wide variety of loft apartments, condos and town homes available for those looking to relocate to this fantastic part of town. Visitors and residents like myself can get it all in one area without ever having to leave.
Visitors can choose from several upscale hotels, hair salons and spas including the Ritz-Carlton, Trio Salon and Stoneleigh Hotel and Spa. A few of my clients choose to stay for the weekend, get their hair styled and luxuriate in a fine hotel while enjoying all that Uptown Dallas has to offer. Because of the many businesses in the area, visitors doing business here enjoy their stay and can indulge in some sight seeing within walking distance of the office or hotel or better yet, surprise their significant other when they return home with a hairstyle from an Uptown Hairstylist. Because of the rich history surrounding Uptown, there are many historical buildings and mansions, perfect for anyone who is interested in architecture. Uptown combines the charm of the old south with modern, hip, urban living.
Anyone interested in the culture and art of the area will be pleased to know that Uptown is home to many art galleries. It also sponsors the Uptown Gallery Walk which is held quarterly. Local restaurants feature food samples at participating galleries and there is also live music and entertainment. Here you are bound to see a variety of different art media and enjoy the culture of the area. The majority of the art galleries are conveniently located on one street and are readily accessible by walking to each.
After your hair appointment you should make it a point to go exploring in Uptown, there is no doubt in my mind that you are bound to be tempted by one of the many restaurants and bars. You can choose from a quick bite, a drink at a local pub, wine bar or coffee house or even upscale dining for a romantic evening. There are over forty restaurants in Uptown Dallas that cater to many different cuisines including Mexican, Italian and French. You can have a beer at one of the local bars like McKinney Ave Tavern (The MAT), indulge in a glass of wine at one of the wine bars like Vino 100 or have a fantastic sea food dinner at Trulucks located a stones throw from the salon. These places are perfect for starting the day, eating lunch, enjoying happy hour after work or ending the evening before going home or back to your hotel.
Uptown is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Dallas but its restructure and modernization have made it the ideal living, working and entertainment venue in the city. Fortunately many of the area attractions are within walking distance of our hair salon. If you are you looking for more info regarding uptown @ farrer check out our website.
