Oak Cliff’s Bishop Arts District is known for its eclectic shops and tasty eateries, and in the midst of it all is Hattie’s, an “upscale American bistro” known for its southern low-country influence. Hattie’s restaurant incorporates Oak Cliff artists’ works into the decor and creates a warm atmosphere. The environment of Hattie’s translates into the rest of the Bishop Arts District general feeling of comfortable classiness. The Bishop Arts District values itself as being a neighborhood and entertainment district where people can shop, eat, and enjoy each other’s company indoors and out. Located along the intersection of Bishop Street and Davis Street just southwest of downtown Dallas, the district was originally developed as an area of warehouses and shops in the 1920s and was travelled by way of trolley from downtown Dallas. By the 1930s, the Davis trolley stop became the busiest trolley stop. As the years progressed, this 2-city-block area quickly grew into a collection of interesting storefronts, schools, and promising property to own and lease. Bishop Arts District continues to undergo a revitalization process and transformation as the two blocks turn into a more urban environment celebrating local art, restaurants, and entertainment.
