Historic District of downtown West End, also known simply as “West End”, is noted for its restored storage buildings and red brick. These old buildings today have dozens of restaurants, shops, bars and dance clubs.
Famous West End Market, four stories, was formerly a candy factory and cookies, but now has activities and entertainment for all ages. In the first steps is the Visitor Center West End Market. The different levels, full of eateries, ethnic jewelry business, the West End Comedy Theatre, Shops and Tejano style Western clothing, they are all connected by escalators. The third floor has a photo shop where visitors can dress up in costumes and take a picture with scenes from the Old West and Victorian era. The fourth floor has a sports bar and a miniature golf course covered.
On weekends, the streets of West End Historic District is full of life, when people take carriage rides pulled by horses, going for a walk to see the street performers or enjoying the summer concerts.
There are many choices of bars in Dallas Ally, a group of several clubs with different types of music, and on Market Street, one of the main streets of West End, is Gator’s Crock & Rock with live music entertainment pianist. The West End is a great place to sit and relax after a busy day and eat something, or just to enjoy a cold beer before starting to dance.
