It’s the week of the Dallas Art Fair and Whitewaller Dallas has arrived to reveal all you need to know about the exhibitions, events, and special projects taking place. All week-long we’ll bring you “Insider Tips” from those in-the-know on what to see, do, eat, and drink. Next up, Director of Modern and Contemporary Art for Heritage Auctions in New York, Leon Benrimon.
“Bolsa in the Bishop Arts District has a great happy hour with an unbelievable range of affordable drinks. Each week, the bartender creates a new specialty cocktail and they offer $5 drinks during week nights. Also, Midnight Rambler in The Joule hotel—I love the retro feeling of the Edison lightbulbs and intimate seating.”
“The annual voyeuristic Swiss Avenue home tour and the wild flowers in bloom around the Trinity River Audubon Center. Really anywhere you go in Dallas during the spring is the best. Off with the light winter jackets and and hello to patio brunches!”
“If anything is happening at Beefhaus, that is where to be. It is pretty much right across the street from the fairgrounds and is run by the Art Beef collective. This is not the art of the Dallas Art Fair just yet, but it will be sometime soon.”
“Back to The Joule to sit in the art-filled lobby by the Taschen bookstore and Weekend coffee shop—I could live at The Joule. I like to take a stroll over the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge and treat myself to Kate Weiser Chocolate sweets and an espresso.”
