How Many Businesses in Deep Ellum Texas will Survive?

This past Saturday, I walked along Deep Ellum streets and alleyways to find a sign of hope. I half expected someone to stick their head out the door and whisper shhhhh follow me if you want to live again. Deep Ellum entertainment district is known for its vibrant street murals, quirky art galleries and long-time concert venues for indie and blues. Brewpubs, cocktail bars and Tex-Mex eateries and of course it’s Serious Pizza.


The music usually draws an energetic crowd on weekends but not this weekend. Most of Deep Ellum roads and sidewalks were pin-drop silent. The restaurants, bars were all closed, and little Antique shops shut down.

The Deep Ellum Brewing Company that usually offers tours, tastings and fun events was boarded up like a New Orleans shop bracing for a Cat 5 Hurricane. As I walk I see business after small home town business either boarded up with graffiti stating “We’ll Be Back, “We Love Dallas” and the popular “#DallasStrong


All of them had the THIRD AMENDED EMERGENCY REGULATIONS taped to their front door signed by Judge Jenkins, making it official that they close. As if they were all saying it’s not our fought we had to close because they made us, see! It was mandated by the City of Dallas that all non-essential business close... Although I hear there’s a salon in North Dallas fighting to remain open and many are calling her a Hero but majority are saying she’s stupid.

The question I asked myself, as I was staring at Serious Pizza sign that says we are closed for remodeling, is the question so many Texans are all pondering today: Who will emerge intact from the pandemic purgatory, and who will not?


In the past three weeks, I’ve posed a version of that question to more than a dozen business owners, retail analysts, economists, consumer advocates, and commercial-real-estate investors and anyone else that may listen. Their viewpoints merge into an articulate, if troubling, story about the future of the Dallas as a whole has changed… not just Deep Ellum.

I’m afraid many mom-and-pop dreams will die over the next few weeks while everyone will be using e-commerce, restaurants will properly experience a transformation unlike anything the industry has experienced since Prohibition. Will Deep Ellum survive… Yes, I say it will, I’m that eternal optimist… I have been going out of my way to eat lunch at one of the many restaurants still open in Deep Ellum and if you love the scene and vibe of the Heart of Texas then you will too.
