The Exchange in downtown Dallas commemorated its grand opening last week at the AT&T Discovery District.

Sitting at 211 Akard St., The Exchange marks Dallas’ first-ever food hall with 16 eateries and two full-service bars.

“First of its kind in Dallas! The Exchange is an innovative culinary experience located in the @ATTDistrict in Downtown Dallas,” Dallas City Councilman Jesse Moreno said on Twitter.

While some of the Metroplex suburbs have food halls of their own, the venues have had restaurants come and go, a purported problem the two-story building seeks to fix.

The Exchange houses 16 eateries including dining options: Monkey King Noodle Co., Revolver Taco and Zalat. Dessert options include La Duni, Val’s Cheesecakes and Press Waffle Co. 

Both floors are stacked with a bar – Double Tap on the first floor and Hard Shake on the second.

Ounce is a Texas-inspired brasserie that offers a variety of flavors and cuisines to tailor to its guests. European and Mediterranean-inspired dishes can be found at Ounce, which is located on the second floor of The Exchange. 

If you’re wanting to cool off with a refreshing cocktail, you can swing by Hard Shake on the second floor, which offers cocktails that are made to perfection. 

“The overall aesthetic (of The Exchange) is composed of simple, dark colors, creating a more formal, loungy environment,” The Dallas Observer said. “While places like Legacy Hall appeal to families, offering different types of food that even the pickiest of eaters are bound to agree on, it’s clear that The Exchange is geared more toward the grown-ups.”

The Exchange is open daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. but hours may differ depending on the vendor. Visitors can drop in and be sure to find the best cuisines of Dallas that are all located together under one roof.
