The dinner was graciously sponsored by Headington Companies on behalf of The Joule. The Joule, named for the international unit of energy, occupies a revitalized 1920's neo-gothic, landmark Dallas building, and is near the completion of a two-yearlong $78 million renovation and expansion. A visual masterpiece from award-winning designer Adam D. Tihany, the hotel creates a tasteful union of old world quality and contemporary design with original marble flooring, rich colored fabrics, millwork, chrome, glass and populated throughout by original artwork from names including Andy Warhol, Adam Fuss and Richard Phillips. In addition to the existing uniquely designed guestrooms and a cantilevered glass rooftop pool, the renovation will include 29 new guest suites, 3 new penthouses, an ESPA spa, a roof terrace, 14,000 square feet of meeting and event space, a craft cocktail lounge, a new 3 meal-a-day restaurant, new museum-quality art installations, a coffee shop, a TASCHEN Library, and several new retail outlets.
Located in the heart of a burgeoning downtown, adjacent to the flagship Neiman Marcus and within walking distance of the internationally acclaimed Dallas Arts District, the hotel has driven a revival of Downtown Dallas by supporting and sponsoring the arts and cultural community.
