Look for Barcadia, Hacienda, Horne and Dekker (new), J Blacks, Park, Bar Celine.
Ditto that. Henderson Ave is the current hot spot for dining and bar hopping. BTW, I tried Horne & Dekker on Saturday and the food was excellent!

I don't consider Uptown super rich, but some apartment rents would be considered expensive.

A lot of people in their 20s, recent college graduates, double up with a roommate.

The great thing about Uptown is being close to the bars. You can meet a lot of desirable singles in the bars on McKinney, or even some off McKinney bars like 6th St, Kung Fu, etc. I know a few couples who met at 6th St. Proximity to the bars helps with getting same night lays.

The whole thing for us is it's soo convenient, it's young, you don't have to drive far, lots of our friends live there, it's hip/trendy/cool, it's walkable everywhere, lots of great bars/restaurants/shops to go to, and did I mention walkable?

We looked over our finances pretty strongly before making the decision of course. Perhaps it helps having a 2 income household (knock on wood)

Are you both currently employed? I just want to clarify that you are making more than "30-40k" or believe you both as recent grads to an extremely flooded market are better than "30-40k"?

If the latter, you have a world of hurt coming. Granted, I came from Chicago market and out of college was at the upper 40's. Now at 25 with my MBA, I am making solid income.


Uptown is definitely a younger, yuppie hipster town. It's for city life folks. Enjoy it, I'll stick to my burbs.

You haven't heard the "$40,000 Millionaire" term for somebody living far beyond their actual income?

Alright, on subject.

It was interesting how our old Uptown neighborhood would get rowdy around your typical paydays and quite leading up to those days. I mean it would be the difference in hearing crickets and the noise being so loud you couldn't sleep. I'm pretty sure local clubs setup up events according to general paydays as well.
