Im looking for an area that has a nightlife,bars,restaurants. 'Similar to Tempe AZ. Im not sure about this area Camden Farmers Market but if anyone has recommendations to neighborhoods or complexes id love to hear them.

Camden market is closer to Deep Ellum which does have some apartments and condos, but more lofts. Each of the three areas - Uptown, Camden, and Deep Ellum is separated from the other by a freeway. Camden market being at the east end of downtown. Deep Ellum just across that freeway. And uptown, north of downtown runs along McKinney, parallel to the west side of US75.

DEEP ELLUM | The Handbook of Texas Online| Texas State Historical Association (TSHA)
Deep Ellum is an entertainment and arts district on Elm Street east of downtown Dallas. The area was settled as a "freedmen's town" by former slaves after the Civil War; its location on Elm Street, just east of the Houston and Texas Central tracks near the depot, was too far from downtown Dallas to be desirable. The area was called Deep Elm or, as early residents pronounced it, "Deep Ellum." Because of the proximity of the railroad it was also called Central Track.

You picked 2 good neighborhoods for the things you want. Uptown is dominated by post properties and Gables buildings. Uptown is considered more desirable, and the rental prices in that neighborhood reflect that. However, the Camden FM has really nice buildings, and I've known a few people who enjoyed living there. It's very close to Uptown and Deep Ellum, so you'll have options.

Farmer's Market is about to undergo a complete makeover, including 240 new apartments. There is a large area of townhouses currently under construction and a new boulevard just north of the area has broken ground.
