Gilley’s Dallas is a ballroom loft area for a couple hosting their wedding in the Dallas, Texas area. This event space combines the best elements of city and country style, with a rooftop patio illuminated by a neon sign, and exposed brick and iron elements all around. Couples will find this eclectic venue in downtown Dallas, just 10 minutes from the Dos Equis Pavilion.
Facilities and Capacity
Gilley’s Dallas includes seven event spaces for couples to choose from on their wedding day. The South Side Ballroom is the largest event space at the venue, with seating capacity for up to 3,800 guests on a couple’s wedding day. The ballroom has three tiers, a concert stage that can be used for ceremonies or reception entertainment, and five custom fabricated bars. The South Side Music Hall is smaller than the ballroom, but is perhaps the venue’s most popular space. This hall seats around 600 reception guests comfortably. It includes professional light and sound equipment, as well as artistic light fixtures of metal. This venue features colorful lighting and a grand dance floor space for a couple’s wedding. The Pasadena and Federal Reserve Rooms can be included with the spaces of the South Side Event Center as auxiliary rooms for the couple’s big day. The Loft is the rooftop space at this wedding venue. Under the glow of the Gilley’s Dallas neon sign, this open-air patio has scenic views of the downtown skyline. Couples can use the location for a scenic ceremony, breathtaking cocktail hour, or reception under the stars. The Lone Star Room features cement floors and rough exposed-brick walls. Twinkling lights are strung across the entire ceiling and wrapped down the metal support poles. Pool tables add vintage charm and playful flair to the space at one end of the room. The Brazos Room is another space with cement floors, exposed brick, and pool tables. This space is less whimsical than the Lone Star Room however because of the lack of fairy lights in the space. Instead, the Brazos Room features wheel-like light fixtures and a sliding barn door that is the height of the ceiling. Jack Daniel’s Saloon is a red and black space with hardwood floors, large windows and a bar as the centerpiece of the space. Whiskey barrels line one wall across the room from a performance stage.
Couples can host a ceremony and reception at this venue, or use the space for another event, such as a bridal shower or engagement party. This loft offers liability insurance for a couple’s wedding, and helpful staff assists with event planning, setup, and cleanup. Lighting and sound services are also available. Guests will love the simplicity of transportation thanks to onsite parking, valet parking, and shuttle services. To make the wedding day feel less chaotic for the couple, this venue offers event rentals that go beyond just tables and chairs and a dance floor — though they offer those three items as well. Couples can find photo booth rentals, audio equipment, lighting. and more at this venue, such as:

Absolutely amazing staff! Anytime I emailed with a question I got a response no later than 2 days, most often it was the following day. The food was fresh and amazing and they didn't immediately take it away once "dinner time" was done, that left it so that people could go back however many times they wanted. Also, my reception was at night so we saw they most amazing skyline of Downtown Dallas.Sent on 05/26/2018

Absolutely one of the best weddings I have ever attended! The staff of Alexis, Dean and Matt was fantastic! They made sure the whole event was perfect. Somehow even slowed the rain from coming into Dallas so the wedding could still go on outside! So many text messages saying it was the most fun wedding ever!! Thank you so very much for all you did to make this a memorable night for my son and his bride on April 21, 2018!Sent on 04/23/2018

Stop Your Search and Pick Gilley's Dallas!
We just had our wedding at Gilley's Dallas Loft and opted to add on the Bonnie & Clyde add on (speakeasy). The view from the loft was gorgeous and the venue itself was so cool. We could not have had a better experience. The staff was attentive and went above and beyond with making our day beautiful and stress free. The vendors they work with are top notch and it is very affordable for everything you get. We worked with Andrea McMillan and she was so quick to respond and had great attention to detail. She is very talented and we knew we were in good hands as soon as we met her. The staff on the day was amazing from the bar tender, production staff, DJ Matt (DJ's of Dallas booked through Gilley's), and security. They were so down to earth and helped wherever they could. If you are looking for a beautiful wedding venue--stop your search and book it here. You will not regret it!Sent on 04/04/2019
