The Joule is a revitalized 1920s neo-Gothic landmark building set in the heart of Dallas’ central business district. With dramatic art installations, unique retail boutiques, a world-class spa, clever design, award-winning food and drinks, and some of the best service in town, The Joule is seen as the city’s cultural epicenter. Adjacent to the Dallas Arts District and the flagship Neiman Marcus, the hotel is perfectly positioned when guests finally do venture out of the hotel’s communal embrace.
Set in the heart of a burgeoning downtown - adjacent to the original Neiman Marcus and within walking distance of the internationally acclaimed Dallas Arts District - The Joule Hotel is fittingly named for the international energy unit. It occupies a revitalized 1920's landmark Dallas building. A visual masterpiece from award-winning designer Adam D. Tihany, the hotel creates a tasteful union of old world quality and contemporary design. It contains a distinguished collection of original artwork from names including Andy Warhol, Tony Cragg, Adam Fuss, and Richard Phillips.
The Joule is a place to treat yourself. Whatever you do to relieve stress is right here in the sleek and sophisticated hotel. The guest rooms' incredible amenities and the entire property have been designed to make your complete hotel experience an absolute pleasure. With a glass-front, the Pool cantilevers eight feet beyond the hotel's structure, providing swimmers with the sensation of swimming off the building's edge.
Eat & Drink - Central to the experience at The Joule is what amounts to a culinary destination with a variety of celebrated dining options featuring craft cocktails and beers, eclectic wines, artisanal comfort food, and a coffee shop that has been described as “biscuit utopia.”It’s all on the table with Joule Catering. From coffee and pastries, passed hors d’ oeuvres to multi-course dinners, there’s an array of options for gatherings large and small, personal and professional. The culinary team is at your service with menus from CBD Provisions, Mirador, Midnight Rambler, Queso Beso, and more.
''CBD Provisions'' - CBD Provisions is an acclaimed modern Texas brasserie located within The Joule. Famous for its Berkshire pig head carnitas, the restaurant celebrates Texas's natural bounty and culinary traditions with a contemporary perspective and a commitment to local and sustainable sourcing. The bold cocktail program features updated classics with a regional spirit, while the wine list showcases outstanding small producers from Texas, California, and France. With a particular emphasis on the best brewers in Dallas-Fort Worth, the beer program at CBD Provisions is craft and draft focused. Though the menu is seasonal and thus ever-changing, word around town is that the coveted spinach dip has become a cult classic among locals.
''Midnight Rambler'' - Inspired by the dark glamour of old-school rock & roll, this subterranean bar is bold and progressive in mood and offerings. The perfect setting for a private cocktail class or celebration with friends, you can have your own “speakeasy” for the night – you set the guest list and the playlist.
''Midador'' - Conceptualized and operated by The Joule’s culinary team, Mirador is a private event space located just across Main Street on the penthouse level of the luxury boutique Forty-Five Ten. Translated as “lookout” or “balcony,” Mirador lives up to its name with eleven-foot floor-to-ceiling windows and a wraparound terrace with expansive views of downtown and Tony Tasset’s outdoor sculpture, Eye. The menu for your gathering can be fully customized from lunch with the girls to a dinner party for the office. With holiday tea service on Sundays (and plenty of bubbly to boot), Mirador is as special as it gets.
''The Lobby Bar'' - Set between the Main and Commerce lobbies and anchored by mid-century mosaics and the art of Tony Cragg, The Lobby Bar perpetuates an intimate setting while being centered in the middle of the action. Swing by for a drink before heading out for the evening or tuck in for a nightcap. ''Weekend'' - A third-wave coffee shop anchors the lobby experience, fresh-roasted artisanal coffee is made just for you to kick-start your morning or wind down your day. The weekend is relaxed and artful with a foodie-centric retail offering, and baked goods made in-house daily. People say the biscuits are worth getting out of bed for.
Wellness & Fitness - Both dedicated to inner peace and wellness, The Joule’s 11,500-square-foot, subterranean spa offers guests a range of body and facial treatments aimed at restoring and rejuvenating. The Spa features a range of complementary products by Codage, Biologique Recherche, and more. *Spa access only valid for guests enjoying services of 50 minutes or above. ''Fitness Center'' - Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, The Joule’s fitness center provides top-of-the-line Excite Line and Precore aerobic equipment, free weights, strength training machines, wellness balls, and yoga mats. To enhance the fitness experience during your stay, guests will enjoy the large-screen TV near the strength training area, as well as those built into each cardio machine.
Art Collection - Art is an undeniable focal point of The Joule experience. Enter through the Main Street doors to see the mid-century mosaics or the Commerce Street lobby, where Roger Hiorns’ crystal-covered engine greets you. Thought-provoking, carefully curated artwork surrounds you throughout the hotel’s public and private spaces. The mosaics tell a slightly different story about art at The Joule, one with twists and turns of near destruction and preservation investment. Hotel founder Tim Headington salvaged more than 70 mosaics by California artist Millard Sheets from a downtown construction project that would have otherwise resulted in their demise. Small and large-scale pieces will remain a constant in the ever-changing collection at The Joule.
The Swimming Pool - The unique 8-foot cantilevered pool gives guests the sensation of swimming out beyond the hotel’s edge while overlooking the hustle of downtown and Main Street below. The heated pool designed by Adam D. Tihany gives the expression “hanging out by the pool,” a whole new meaning. Pool Policy: The pool is an amenity of the hotel and is open exclusively to hotel guests, weather permitting*. *The Pool will close during the fall and winter seasons.
