Earlier this summer, I told you how the new Perrier flavors were bubbly, sweet and perfect to drink while enjoying rooftop views. Since I can’t get enough of them, I’ve partnered with the brand once again. Only this time I’m going to take you on a walk down the vibrant streets of Deep Ellum.
This historic neighborhood – just east of downtown Dallas, has always been the place to enjoy music and explore art. Back in the 19th century, it became a hot spot for jazz and local sounds. Nowadays, renovated warehouses that once were industrial plants house upscale restaurants, dive bars, live music venues and then some.
After buying more than 39 properties in the area – since 2012. Real Estate developer Scott Rohrman knew that he wanted to maintain the integrity of the community, which led to the formation of the 42 Murals projects. He commissioned 42 artists from all over Texas and one from Europe to paint bold graffiti in all of his properties. How amazing is that?
I mention this because just like Mr. Rohrman, Perrier has always promoted the arts and creative expression. It makes sense, given that the new Perrier flavors (strawberry and watermelon) are crisp and invigorating, just like this quirky part of the Big D.
You should totally visit Deep Ellum on your next visit to Dallas. More than street-art paradise this place is a cultural hub and don’t forget to take your favorite Perrier flavor on your stroll.
