Formerly a warehouse district, the West End MarketPlace is known today for its entertainment offerings and unique shopping venues, as well as for its street entertainers, outdoor ice-skating rink and vintage street lights. The upscale Hotel Adolphus, built in 1912, offers you a stay surrounded by elegance, evident in the fine lobby and luxurious guest rooms. A variety of eateries and nightclubs make this district one of the liveliest places to be on Friday and Saturday nights. The Palm features a Texas-style menu with a touch of class, while Y.O. Ranch is well known for its Tex-Mex cuisine. The West End is also an excellent place to experience Texas History—visit Dealey Plaza, Old Red Courthouse and the Sixth Floor Museum.
