About

Up to 300 guests

Howell and Dragon is a versatile wedding venue located in Dallas, Texas. This setting combines industrial and vintage elements, with exposed brick walls illuminated by shining chandeliers. The hall sits in the city's downtown area, just five minutes from The Dallas World Aquarium. This space can be used to host both ceremony and reception, as well as pre-wedding get-togethers like engagement parties, showers, and rehearsal dinners.

Facilities and Capacity

Up to 300 guests can join couples at their Howell and Dragon celebrations. This ballroom is a long, open-plan space, a blank canvas that couples can make their own. At one end of this room there is a small stage, suitable for a couple exchanging their vows or a DJ putting on a memorable performance. This space also includes a kitchen area for your chosen catering company and a bar for celebratory toasts. The walls of the room are exposed white brick, adding a touch of elegance to the industrial atmosphere. The ceiling is crisscrossed with exposed metal beams, which are also painted white. Glamorous crystal chandeliers hang from these beams, illuminating the room and the polished floor. The entire floor is itself a dance floor, meaning that no matter the seating plan, guests can find somewhere to dance. The neutral color scheme of the room means it can be easily transformed with lighting and decor.

    A Perfect Night!

    I can't say enough about how wonderful a job Howell and Dragon and CN Catering did for my daughter's wedding. The venue itself is beautiful. The way they have it set up, you have a multitude of options. They provide everything from chairs to silverware. Truly a one stop shop! Brooke was a dream to work with - she is incredibly responsive and so helpful in making suggestions and showing set up options. She was patient with my never ending questions and displayed professionalism and confidence! The service provided during our event was seamless! They were well trained, non invasive, but there when you needed them and friendly and polite. To me, that is a sign of a well run organization...happy employees! Let's talk about the catering - The food was, quite honestly, the best I've ever had. A week later and people are still talking about it! Everything was hot (not luke-warm) and delicious! We had 3 different food stations and they were run like a well oiled machine! At first we thought there would be lines and it would take a minute, but, I kid you not, we blinked and everyone was served and enjoying their meal.
    I don't know when I will have another opportunity to use this group, but I can assure you, when I do, they will be at the top of my call list!

    Great venue!

    Howell and Dragon was the perfect place for my daughter’s wedding. They worked with us endlessly with all the changes because of the pandemic and made the day beautiful despite the changes. Everyone raved about the venue and the food. I would recommend them to anyone! I want to thank David and his team for all their hard work.

    Howell and Dragon's reply:

    Thank you for your awesome review and kind words!
    It was such an honor to share this day with you all!!
    Happy Holidays and Best Wishes!

    Same company for Venue + Catering is a plus!

    My husband and I had our wedding reception at Howell and Dragon in January 2020. I would pick this venue over and over again, it is stunning! When I first walked in and saw the lobby and chandeliers in the main room, I knew that it was the one! And I received an email response the same day I inquired about the venue. The whole team at CN catering was so amazing throughout the whole process leading up to our wedding day. A special shout out to Lexi, because she was the absolute best. We got so lucky with her! Everyone was helpful and they were always responsive to all of my questions. Aside from the beautiful aesthetic, the food was so delicious and affordable. We’re still reeling with happiness from how beautiful and tasty everything turned out. The vision we had for our wedding reception was truly captured because they took the time to work every detail out with us which was important as we didn’t have a wedding planner.
