Alas, Deep Ellum's trendsetting days are over. Formerly the haunt of legendary bluesmen such as Huddie "Leadbelly" Ledbetter during the 1920s, Deep Ellum's funky music clubs produced platinum acts like Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians in the '80s; art galleries, art bars, and quirky shops soon followed. Although the scene has mostly moved uptown to areas like the West Village and Victory Park, and although parts of the area can be unsafe, it's worth the trip to experience Club Dada. The bar preserves the raw feel of Deep Ellum in its heyday, with entertainment ranging from quirky rockers to blues to poetry readings.
