Bishop Arts is the city’s largest intact trolley-era shopping district, dating back to the arrival of the streetcar line in 1904. After surviving demolition when highways were developed, the area was rediscovered in the 1970s by locals who opened new businesses. Later the City of Dallas invested heavily in the neighborhood by upgrading the streets, sidewalks, and landscaping. With the new infrastructure in place, the Bishop Ars District easily attracted the attention of culinary entrepreneurs who helped make the area a haven for foodies and visitors.
