- Matsuo Basho
A former Freedman's Town (historic slave neighborhood) based around Elm Street, this diverse enclave of arts and music just east of downtown is a world of music and history. The area referred to as Deep Elm (affectionately pronounced "Deep Ellum") was a premier jazz and blues hotspot of the 1920s and '30s, and today provides a range of music experiences. Enjoy avante-garde shops, art galleries, and singular restaurants in this upbeat neighborhood, or explore streets and structures decorated with Deep Ellum's signature murals.
