Within less than two miles of the hotel there are eight entertainment venues and five of them are within walking distance of Rosewood Crescent Hotel and five are accessible via the McKinney Avenue Trolley which stops right outside the hotel.
The easiest walk is into Dallas Arts District which is a few blocks away and is connected by the new park over Woodall Rogers Freeway. There you’ll find the stunning Winspear Opera House, Wyly Theatre and Myerson Symphony Hall.
The opera house opened in 2009 and is home to Dallas Opera, Lexus Broadway Series, Brinker International Forum, Texas Ballet Theatre and the long-running TITAS series of dance and musical performances and occasional concerts. The near perfect acoustics mean that every seat, whether in the front of the stage or up in the highest balcony can hear a pin drop on the stage and the horseshoe design allows for an intimate feel and great sightlines. For ballet and dance aficionados the auditorium was designed to ensure all seats can see the feet of the dancers.
In the Wyly Theatre the unique design and flexible layout mean that the staging can be changed for each production from a proscenium stage, thrust or in-the-round allowing the director to be truly creative in every performance. Dallas Theatre Center who stage six performances a year, a mixture of plays and musicals and Dallas Black Dance Theatre both count the Wyly as their home.
The Myerson Symphony Hall is another venue in Dallas with near perfect acoustics. It was designed for the presentation of classical and contemporary music and choral works. The Myerson is home for the renowned Dallas Symphony lead by Maestro Conductor Jaap Van Zweden. The symphony complements its major performance season with a Pops Series conducted by famous musician songwriter Marvin Hamlisch. Turtle Creek Chorale, a hugely popular gay men’s chorus blending great singing with some comedic performances are also based at the Myerson.
Also in walking distance of the hotel is American Airlines Center in Victory Park. Home to the Dallas Mavericks and Dallas Stars, this 25,000-seat stadium is a mecca in this sports-loving town. Boasting great food options in the Victory area and inside the arena itself, there is also a Platinum Level with additional food and lounge seating.
