On Monday, August 20, Mayor Mike Rawlings cut the ribbon for the grand opening ceremony of NYLO Dallas South Side. The third NYLO in Dallas was converted from a 102-year-old building next to South Side on Lamar into a boutique, LEED certified urban hotel. Yesterday marked an important day for those who have worked on developing the hotel, but it also marked a milestone for the revitalized South Side and anyone watching as Dallas transforms into a world-class city.

NYLO Dallas South Side features art created by local artists specifically for the hotel and effectively reflects the soul of the hip neighborhood. The hotel also features the French-inspired Terrace Bistro and the inevitably cool rooftop Soda Bar with infinity pool, casual grill, and an unforgettable view of downtown.

The NYLO was formally the Dallas Coffin Company, built in 1910 during the industrial development of South Dallas along the rail lines. As Dallas expanded outward over the decades, South Side began to decline. Today, the neighborhood has been well on its way to becoming a vibrant area for shopping, dining, entertainment, and living thanks to the vision of people like Jack Matthews of Matthews Southwest who has worked on several projects that have helped resurrect South Side. With the opening of NYLO, South Side has more than earned its ‘up and coming’ title and can now be looked to as the next big thing.
