Here at Nessel Development, we’re big fans of the DART Rail. A short ride down the Red Line will lead you straight to some of the city’s hottest destinations!
Our first stop: Mockingbird Station.
Home to the Angelika Theatre, Trinity Hall, and tons of shopping and dining, it makes sense why this Dallas hotspot draws large crowds from all over DFW!
Angelika @ Mockingbird Station
American Apparel is our number one haunt for fun retro wears. We love AA’s skinny ties, organic cotton tees, and those oh-so-80s leg warmers!
Also on our faves list is Urban Outfitters. The place carries a wide selection of canvas sneakers, budget dinnerware, and up-to-the-minute fashions. (Hint: Check out Urban’s sale rack for unbeatable deals!)
Angelika Theatre is the city’s premier indie-film house. Dallasites love good cinema, and the guys at Angelika know what’s up! Now playing: An Education, Antichrist, Precious, Ong Bak 2, The Men Who Stare at Goats, A Serious Man, and Gentlemen Broncos.
Before a fine flick, we like to grab a quick bite.
Vapiano is a fast-casual German chain that offers fabulous pasta dishes made-to-order! Each patron is handed a tab card upon entering the establishment (making separate-check dining a cinch), and the eatery boasts a diverse following, including students, townies, and young professionals.
Urban Taco is great for healthy dining on-the-fly. We heart the eatery’s Grilled Green Onions (topped with a tomato-heavy pico de gallo), and Ensalada Tropical (loaded with cherry tomatoes, grapefruit, papaya, pickled red onions, roasted pumpkin seeds, extra-tender palm hearts, and served with a passion fruit vinaigrette).
Movie-goers can even enjoy a fine brew before (or after) the show. Trinity Hall serves-up a large variety of beers, including Texas’ own Franconia Hefe on draught (brewed just north of us in McKinney). Live Irish music fills the hall certain days of the week, and the ever-changing clientele keeps the place fresh!
No doubt we’re big fans of Mockingbird Station, but we do realize there’s a lot more to Dallas than just shopping and dining.
Stay tuned as we explore the Big D on our next DART Rail adventure!
