About

On WeddingWire since 2017

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.

Howell and Dragon's staff offers many accommodating services, such as cleanup and setup on the wedding day, to support couples. The venue is also pet-friendly, meaning that your furry four-legged friend can join in on the celebration.

To-be-weds are free to choose whichever vendors they believe will help them bring their dream to life. To add a touch of luxury to the day, guests can take advantage of valet parking.

Celebration of Life

I recently used Howell & Dragon for my late partner鈥檚 Celebration of Life. Madison and the entire staff were wonderful to work with. The venue was perfect, and the catered food was great. They made an incredibly difficult day easy to plan and execute. I imagine it would be a perfect spot for a wedding.

Beautiful Venue

We are so glad we chose Howell and Dragon for our wedding reception! They were so easy to work with and helped our vision come alive! We received so many compliments on how nice everything looked and how great the food and service was. Madison was very helpful and responsive. We had a guest count of 90 and it felt like the perfect size. We will definitely recommend to other couples!

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!
