About Howell and Dragon

Howell and Dragon is a banquet hall for couples’ weddings in the greater Dallas, Texas area. This industrial vintage venue features white brick walls, polished wooden barn doors, exposed ceiling metals, and dainty chandeliers. Couples can find this venue in downtown Dallas, just five minutes from The Dallas World Aquarium.

Facilities and Capacity
Up to 300 guests can join couples at this fashionable vintage venue. This ballroom is one long open space, perfect for accommodating a couple’s dream ceremony or reception. At one end of this venue there is a small stage, perfect for a couple beginning their lives together or — at a reception — for a band or DJ. This open ballroom also includes a kitchen area for caterers and a bar. As for the decor of the room, the walls are exposed brick painted white for elegance and sophistication. The exposed metal of the ceiling is also painted white, giving the venue its elegant and industrial combination. From these ceiling beams of metal hang small delicate chandeliers that glow with a romantic light, reflecting off the many crystals. A polished floor makes the perfect space for dancing without couples having to worry about how tables will be arranged. The entire floor is itself a dance floor, meaning that — large or small — the size of a wedding won’t negatively impact the setup of the tables.

Services Offered
In addition to their ceremony and reception, couples can also have a bridal shower, engagement party, or rehearsal dinner in this banquet hall venue. They will find that the staff offers many accommodating services, such as cleanup and setup on the wedding day.

    Most Amazing Space!

    Howell and Dragon is the perfect venue for brides looking for that boho, industrial romantic vibe. It balances the warehouse-y vibe with luxury (aka not "too run down", which some other venues i looked at were), and the chandeliers in the ballroom are gorgeous. I could not have picked a better venue.
    Design: this is a beautiful space that can be dressed up or down to fit your needs. For us, it allowed us to have a beautiful wedding without spending and exorbitant amount of money on florals and décor. Additionally, there's a beautiful ivy-covered building next door, which was wonderful for shooting photos of the wedding party!

    Layout: the venue has two main spaces – a cocktail lounge and the larger ballroom. This makes it very easy to have the ceremony on site, move everyone to the cocktail lounge for drinks and apps, and “flip” the room from ceremony to reception. The cocktail space is beautiful, with a stunning bar display, and includes three sets of luxe lounge furniture. If you’ve been looking at the styles of venues on Instagram, you’ve probably seen many boho/industrial venues with beautiful lounges set up. However, at most venues, this furniture is not included, so you’d have to rent it at additional cost. At Howell and Dragon, it’s included in the space rental, which saves you $1-2k (crazy, right?) Additionally, the two-room setup gave older guests a place to hang out during the reception, in case they were less interested in the dance floor.
    Catering: Since the venue is owned by CN Catering, they are your catering vendor by default. This is actually a really good thing. The venue has a kitchen on site, so your food is not being carted across town and then reheated to serve – its being cooked right on site. CN has an extensive menu, but honestly they can make you anything. I know in-house caterers can be iffy for some venues ,but this is not the case with CN. They do plenty of events at other venues as well, so you know they are well respected, fairly priced, and do a good job. One wedding planner I talked to said she recommends them to any bride whose venue doesn’t come with an in-house caterer, as in her opinion, they are some of the best in the industry, very professional, etc.
    Accessibility: The venue is all on one floor, and can be accessed via ramp or a short staircase from the street level.
    Parking: there's a pretty good amount of street parking available nearby, which was helpful for guests driving in from the suburbs.

    Bottom line: if you’re looking for a venue that strikes a good balance between luxe and industrial, stop looking. You’ve found it. The team here is very professional, and you won’t regret choosing them to host your day.

    You have to see it for yourself!!!!

    I had my wedding reception at Howell and Dragon, and it was an absolute DREAM!!!! Brooke and Doug are so polite and engaging, you definitely want them, or any of their staff on your team. They made sure my day was flawless without any bumps. Also the food was delicious and my guess could not stop talking about how beautiful the venue was. I’m so happy with EVERYTHING !!!!!
