A life of luxury, exclusivity, glamour, and prestige
Within the heart of north central Dallas lies Highland Park, one of the most affluent and desirable neighborhoods in the state and nation. This central community boasts palatial estates, prestigious educational opportunities, and unmatched proximity to dining, shopping, nightlife, and other amenities. Mature oaks line the quiet streets protecting some of the most glamorous estates in Texas, all just blocks away from the excitement and allure of the city. Quite simply put, no other neighborhood in Dallas comes close to the luxury, prestige, and quality of Highland Park.
In the early 1900s, the development of Highland Park began, with the city being partially designed by Wilbur David Cook who had planned much of Beverly Hills. Today, this exclusive luxury still remains thanks to the city’s extensive zoning laws and unmatched quality of construction. Highland Park is home to classical Beaux Arts-style estates with several new, modern manors being constructed in recent years featuring the latest technology and most high-end finishes.
Simply put, residents of Highland Park enjoy an elevated standard of living in all aspects of life. Students attend world-class schools, high-paying jobs in powerful downtown offices are located close by, and plenty of leisure options can be found immediately within the neighborhood. This quiet enclave is conveniently located between multiple freeways, making it easy to get around the city. However, most residents don’t need to venture off too far from home very frequently. Downtown is a stone’s throw away, luxury shops are just blocks from home, trendy shops and nightlife is found in neighboring Uptown, and prestigious clubs and golf courses are located within Highland Park.
Highland Park is home to some of Dallas’ finest restaurants and most luxurious shopping. Elegant European cuisine, exquisite caviar, and authentic internationally inspired creations can all be found close to home.
Bistro 31 serves classical European favorites in an elegant dining room boasting white tablecloths, stunning chandeliers, a warm, inviting aura, and a shady patio. Lobster bisque, crabcakes, seared foie gras, and Nutella tiramisu are just a few of their popular menu offerings, all of which pair well with their colorful cocktail menu served in stylish designer-inspired stemware.
In the immediately adjacent Knox/Henderson neighborhood, Up On Knox is a chic, upscale spot to enjoy caviar, oysters, and craft cocktails in a bright setting. The house burger and grilled salmon are go-to creations among locals, but the weekend brunch is the most popular time to visit. Homemade buttermilk biscuits, creamy avocado toast, lobster BLTs, and creative cocktails to top off these midday comforts.
Nonna is an authentic Italian eatery serving fresh pasta, pizza, antipasti plates, and classic desserts. The recent winner of an Open Table Diners’ Choice award, Nonna has developed a popular reputation for its unique white clam pie, lobster ravioli, and quintessential Italian cocktails.
One of Dallas’ most prestigious shopping destinations is located within the heart of Highland Park. Highland Park Village was the first luxury shopping center of its kind in the nation, setting the trend for hundreds of others to follow. Declared as a National Historic Landmark, Highland Park Village is home to luxury brands like Chanel, Valentino, Cartier, and several exquisite dining options such as Bistro 31, Café Pacific, and Bird Bakery.
While Highland Park boasts luxurious shops and eateries, this peaceful enclave is also home to several opportunities for enjoying peace and quiet outdoors. Located adjacent to Highland Park Village, the Dallas Country Club is one of the most exclusive memberships in the city. Members of this prestigious club spanning nearly 120 acres are afforded access to world-class amenities, exquisite facilities, premier on-site dining, and a robust social calendar. Turtle Creek Park is situated on the southern side of Highland Park, boasts a rich history, and is one of the most scenic spots in Dallas. Klyde Warren Park is a more urban alternative in the heart of downtown positioned atop the Woodall Rodgers Freeway.
