Occupying a Dallas landmark and decorated with original art throughout, The Joule is a hybrid of luxury hotel and exclusive gallery. Its 1920s neo-Gothic building, beautifully renovated by award-winning designer Adam D. Tihany, showcases sculptures, paintings, and salvaged mid-century mosaics. Tihany's daring designs continue in the cantilevered pool that extends out of the hotel to a glass wall overlooking Main Street. With elegant guestrooms, stunning art, and on-site restaurants and boutiques, The Joule is an iconic Dallas original reimagined.

Led by a Les Clefs d’Or member, the concierge team can organize your stay from start to finish, whether you need help deciding which museum to visit or finding the best Texan barbecue. For trips within 5 mi / 8 km, arrange a ride in one of the hotel’s Audi A8s, or its Mercedes GL.
Kickstart the day at coffee shop Weekend, have a leisurely lunch at Italian restaurant Americano, and take afternoon tea in the TASCHEN Library. Begin your evening with Texan cuisine in CBD Provisions, before heading underground for a cocktail in the basement bar, Midnight Rambler.
CBD Provisions – Upon opening in 2014, this open-kitchen brasserie serving creative comfort food and cocktails, was hailed as one of the 50 best new restaurants by Bon Appétit. Try the signature Berkshire pig head carnitas, homemade linguine, or dry aged Porterhouse, and wash it down with a creative cocktail, local or international wine, or a craft beer.
Midnight Rambler – Chad Solomon and Christy Pope of New York's celebrated Cuffs & Buttons have created a stylish, rock'n'roll-inspired space beneath the hotel. Dark walls and a playful lightning motif contrast with the bright rooms upstairs to create the perfect backdrop for a menu that blends artisanal spirits with flavors like pine, cinnamon, grapefruit zest, and Creole bitters.
The Lobby Bar – Stop by for a pre-dinner drink or a nightcap at The Lobby Bar, furnished with a bold sculpture by Tony Cragg and a mid-century mosaic.
Weekend Coffee – Grab a coffee and a fresh pastry or try the legendary biscuits — a favorite with the locals.
Americano – Order an Italian classic, from homemade meatball spaghetti to arancini, and people-watch from the sidewalk patio.
Tea at TASCHEN – Take your afternoon tea in bright china cups paired with delicate cakes and savory snacks in the TASCHEN Library.
The ESPA spa at The Joule is a sanctuary of calmness. Book “The Joule” massage treatment, which includes Himalayan salt exfoliation and the use of warm volcanic and jade stones. Join a spin class in the 3,600 sq ft, state-of-the-art VITAL Fitness Studio, or browse the in-house boutiques TenOverSix, TRAFFIC LA, and TASCHEN Library. Afterward, relax in the heated pool, which partially overhangs busy Main Street.
Outside of the hotel, explore Dallas with its array of shopping, dining, nightlife, attractions, and entertainment options, from working your way through the cocktail list on the Happiest Hour’s huge terrace, or exploring the Dallas Museum of Art. Other highlights include the Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas World Aquarium, Bear Creek Golf Club, and Dallas Zoo.
