Your Guide to the Shops on Lower Greenville

Amid a residential area surrounded by charming old homes, Greenville Avenue shimmers with its gripping nightlife. With venues like Granada Theater and Crown and Harp guarding both its ends, and great restaurants and bars in between, the area's become something like Deep Ellum's less naughty little sister. So despite Trader Joe's and other retail presence, it may surprise many to learn that civilization actually gathers there for business during the AM hours. With gems that range from boutiques with one-of-a-kind pieces to a veritable witches' store, these shops are unmissable and well-worth heading out to before sunset attracts a swarm of barflies.

KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Eva Raggio is the Dallas Observer's music and arts editor, a job she took after several years of writing about local culture and music for the paper. Eva supports the arts by rarely asking to be put on "the list" and always replies to emails, unless the word "pimp" makes up part of the artist's name.
