Highland Park Village was the nation’s only self-contained shopping center when it first opened in 1931, and, nearly seven decades later, it was designated as a National Historic Landmark. Today, the center’s elegant Spanish architecture is accented by sweeping door arches, red tile roofs, and an ornate fountain. The complex is an emporium of luxury stores, including Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Cartier, Chanel, Christian Dior, Christian Louboutin, Fendi, Goyard (the only in Texas), Harry Winston, Hermès, Jimmy Choo, Lela Rose, Rag & Bone, Ralph Lauren (the largest in Texas), Tom Ford, Valentino, and more. Shoppers can also find specialty goods, like gourmet produce at Royal Blue Grocery, expertly curated gifts from St. Michael’s Woman’s Exchange and Madison, and hand-blended fragrances from French perfumery Le Labo. Upscale seafood restaurant Café Pacific is a longtime favorite on the Park Cities dining scene, and Mi Cocina brings in the masses for Tex-Mex, while Bistro 31 spots offer finer dining and after hours, a social cocktail scene. The Village Theatre, with both large and small screening rooms, is the perfect spot for a family outing, date night, or intimate private viewing event.
