Backstory

Your dream wedding starts with choosing the perfect venue. At The Joule, your options are endless, from a year-round rooftop terrace with skyline views to three ballrooms to an expansive outdoor lawn.

Set in a revitalized 1920s neo-gothic landmark building in the heart of downtown Dallas, The Joule features spectacular multi-story penthouses, an impressive glass-fronted rooftop cantilevered pool, subterranean spa, and first-class dining and cocktail destinations. The rooftop terrace boasts a climate-controlled glass pavilion with a retractable roof, private access via an all-glass elevator on Main Street and sweeping skyline views.

Art is an undeniable focal point of the hotel with museum-quality works and large-scale mosaics throughout the lobby and common areas. A notable piece includes artist Tony Tasset’s Eye, a 30-foot-tall sculpture located on the hotel’s outdoor lawn and event space.

For the Couple Who

For the couple who wants to personalize her big day, The Joule’s culinary and events team works together to ensure your vision and inspiration are executed perfectly.

Whether it’s a cocktail hour, intimate rehearsal dinner, or a completely customized ceremony and reception, there’s no limit to what the events team can do. Through close collaboration, The Joule’s catering team creates seasonally-driven menus with presentations that best fit your event.

Memorable additions to your big day could include a private bridal shower in Taschen Library with Champagne afternoon tea service, all-day bliss in the spa, or reserved space for cocktails in Midnight Rambler for when the celebration isn’t quite over yet.

    Billie, Jesse, and the entire Joule Team were incredible. While we had anticipated top-notch service from the Joule, they delivered beyond that from start to finish was top-notch! The food and drink service was incredible, and they accommodated all of our separate asks from 3 different signature cocktails, to changes on the standard dinner menu. Our guests thought our wedding cost multiples of what we spent and this is in large part due to the service and ambiance the Joule provided. Billie and her team also coordinated seamlessly with all of our external vendors (photographer, flowers, cake and music) allowing us to enjoy the day without worrying about the small stuff. While the evening went by very quickly, there is very little that we would have changed. Thank you again!

    I fell in love with the beautiful Joule Dallas the moment I stepped inside of it. It was the perfect venue for our wedding day/weekend. Although the service from the entire staff was spectacular, I especially want to thank Kathryn Duncan for her attentiveness and organization. Anytime we had questions or issues, she resolved them quickly and her helpfulness consistently went above and beyond our expectations. I also want to give major props to the Joule chefs who prepared our cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres, wedding reception dinner, and late night snacks! Our guests can't stop raving about the delicious food! We had an amazing wedding experience at the Joule and were truly impressed with the service and venue. I highly recommend them!
