The Joule Dallas

The Joule is a beacon of energy in the heart of downtown Dallas. The hotel is situated in a revitalized 1920s neo-Gothic building that has been reimagined for the modern traveler — a tour de force of Adam D. Tihany's award-winning design and style. Each of the 128 sleek guestrooms and suites is a masterful expression of contemporary design juxtaposed against restored historic finishes. You’ll be captivated by the famed Charlie Palmer restaurant, the award-winning cantilevered rooftop pool, and the fitness center. The hotel also offers more than 2,300 square feet of meeting space and is set to complete a $78 million expansion in March 2013.

Each guestroom at The Joule stretches the artistic boundaries of form and function, merging compelling layouts with inventive décor. Conceived by globally renowned designer Adam D. Tihany, each chamber has emerged from recent renovation as an inspired work of art. From the inviting entryway with black Merbau wood floors to the custom Italian woodwork with self-closing drawers in a glossy, brown finish, the feeling is one of sleek sophistication.  Shades of deep blue, soft grey, and jewel-toned burgundy add depth to a rich palette of color and patterned beige wall covers, further highlighting Bram Tihany’s specially commissioned photographs. Each work is a crisp black and white photograph of the Dallas/Fort Worth area, capturing the city’s social and architectural icons through Tihany’s innovative lens.

Rooms and suites—including the Loft Suites and the Penthouse with private access and a rooftop terrace—feature inspired appointments and original furniture designs that maximize the use of space. A polished chrome reading lamp recessed in the headboard, 300 thread count sheets, and a full martini station are but few of the thoughtful touches designed to enhance each guest's stay.  Spacious bathrooms, which include a full line of Gilchrist & Soames spa products, gleam with dark ceramic tiles, while rainforest showerheads with adjustable flow provide a relaxing retreat. Plush robes are provided. Please note that connecting rooms are available.

A heated rooftop pool, suspended beyond the building’s edge, entices guests with sweeping views of downtown Dallas, and with a light menu of Charlie Palmer’s innovative fare served on pristine decks. The pool is an architectural triumph drawing the attention of Main Street passerby, many of whom venture into the hotel to experience the popular PM Nightlife Lounge, dine at Charlie Palmer at The Joule, or make a purchase at Next Vintage, a 13-foot high glass and steel wine shop.  Guests of The Joule are invited to use key cards to enter the state-of-the-art fitness center, where aerobic equipment, free weights, and strength training machines are available 24 hours a day.

Charlie Palmer at The Joule brings the fare of this world-renowned chef and restaurateur to the hotel, introducing distinctively American menu selections with the absolute freshest and most innovative ingredients in a modern and sophisticated setting. At Next Vintage—a retail wine store housed in a towering stainless steel and glass structure in the hotel’s lobby—guests enjoy an elite collection of exquisite wines, hand-picked by Chef Charlie Palmer and his staff of experienced Sommeliers.

Drawing upon Texas' top ranking as a producer of wind energy, Charlie Palmer features a "breezy" theme, which includes lazily spinning turbines within covered ceiling lights. A rich, earthy color palette offset by textured materials and limestone flooring suggests a rugged but sophisticated contemporary environment.   Executive Chef Scott Romano, formerly of Spago and Cut, offers diners an elemental lineup of artisanal ingredients, simply prepared. Crisp black sea bass with sweet Vidalia onion and the tagine braised pheasant with truffle-smoked bacon ragout are popular dishes, though pairings are customized according to diners’ preference. Please allow seasoned Sommelier Brandan Kelley to suggest the perfect wine to enhance your meal from a vast wine anthology.

The Chef's menu reaches beyond the confines of this sophisticated venue to the rooftop pool bar, where guests can enjoy a light-fare menu in comfortable seating and lounging areas. Private dining room can accommodate up to 10 guests. Parties of 11-15 guests can enjoy the main dining room. Small plates by Charlie Palmer are available in The Joule’s lobby.

A shimmering palette of gold, copper, and silver imbues the PM Nightlife Lounge with a cutting edge, artistic energy unique to this exclusive underground destination. Exquisite installations of geode, pyrite, and crystal are reflected in oversized bronze mirrors, adding to the effect.  Expect the venue’s ambience to shift depending upon the evening. Warmer, softer tones are used earlier in the week, while a richer palette unfolds towards the weekend.

With a commitment to unsurpassed service, as well as an inspiring blend of cutting edge design, extraordinary architecture, and sleek sophistication, The Joule has emerged as Dallas’s premier venue for special events. There is 2,374-square-feet of elegant and functional space, including the Black Gold Ballroom, found on the hotel’s second floor. The largest of The Joule’s four event spaces, the ballroom doors are composed of custom steel panels with geometric patterns sketched in alternating textures. Inside, the room is well suited for high-profile fetes, including weddings, fashion shows, cocktail receptions, and beyond.

Along with providing catering services for meetings and social events, Charlie Palmer’s at The Joule provides a sophisticated backdrop for an array of parties and intimate gatherings.  The Radiant Room, ideal for meetings and conferences, is intimate and inviting. For a truly unique gathering, experience the trendy underground PM Nightlife Lounge, where the city’s own brand of intoxicating energy adds infinite allure.  The poolside reception area on the 10th floor provides an unmatched venue for an intimate soiree. Guests mingle as downtown Dallas pulsates below.

Ideally located for an endless array of exciting pursuits, The Joule is situated in Downtown Dallas, within the central business district and adjacent to Uptown and Victory Park. Shoppers delight in one particular neighbor—the Neiman Marcus flagship store is just steps from the hotel. Hotel guests are able to call the store directly from their guest room with a programmed speed dial.  Guests are invited to explore other shopping outlets, including The Northpark Center. This premier shopping center offers a mix of the finest in luxury retail, market exclusives, and fine dining amidst lush landscaping and peaceful promenades.
