Spend a Fun-filled Day in the Harwood District

Man walking through the garden in Hardwood District

An easy drive from One Dallas Center is a lively destination where visitors can explore a unique twist to Dallas’ art and culture scene. 

We’re talking about the Harwood District, and highlights include:

The Grove 

Called “Dallas’ backyard,” The Grove is where locals gather for games and snow cones. It’s open nightly until 10:00 p.m., and happy hour is all day every day. Hungry visitors can enjoy a burger such as The Grove, the Harwood Hippie, and the Juicy Lucy. All pair well with the onion rings and a pint of Deep Ellum IPA. 

Mercat Bistro

Mercat is a European bistro featuring French-inspired cuisine. Considered one of Dallas’ best restaurants, its romantic setting is filled with antiquities from around the world. The chefs make the meals to order and only use the finest, freshest ingredients. Dinner offerings include steak frites, duck confit, and pan seared salmon. 

The Ann & Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Museum

Step inside this museum to discover the impressive samurai collection amassed by Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller. One thousand objects are on display, and they date between the seventh and nineteenth century. All were made with expert craftsmanship, and highlights include masks, helmets, and suits of armor. The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday and admission is free.

Marie Gabrielle Restaurant and Gardens

With a European garden and breathtaking views, it’s no wonder that Marie Gabrielle is one of the most sought-after venues in town. It’s open for breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday, and in the evenings for special occasions. Guests can dine inside or under the towering oak and river birch trees. Entrees include truffle burgers, hazelnut chicken, and braised short ribs.
