About University Park
At the Northeast end of Dallas, and much in the heart of Southern Methodist University, a popular place known as University Park features food, drinks, and entertainment all days of the year! University Park is actually its own ?city? within Dallas. This happened after the student population at SMU cluttered living space in the city. Though addresses in University Park use ?Dallas? to list themselves, the enormous amount of students and education can be found throughout the entire area. If you are looking for things to do during the day in University Park, museums, galleries, shops and SMU events are everywhere. University Park nightlife is extremely busy almost everyday of the week. Sofrano?s Bar and Nightclub, Times Ten Cellars and Lucky Lou?s are only a small handful of the different venues offered here. Although figuring out who has the best nightly specials is the best way to plan your stay, anywhere you try is likely to show you a great time, but if not, there?s always one right next door.
