Plan a Quick Fall Getaway to Dallas

While the summer temperatures make exploring unbearable, with fall comes the opportunity to experience the best of North Texas. Whether you want to experience the monumental State Fair of Texas, the best of “Friday Night Lights” with football season, or live out your fairytale fantasy at the 17th annual Autumn at the Arboretum, Dallas is the place to experience the best of fall. Travelers looking for an unforgettable place to stay should consider The Joule, which is conveniently located in the heart of Downtown. Sharing some highlights below:

  • The Joule (which opened its doors in 2008) is housed in a neo-Gothic landmark building which was originally the Dallas National Bank built in the 1920’s 
  • With 160 guestrooms, The Joule’s luxury accommodations range from cozy deluxe rooms to expansive suites, including a 2,500-square-foot penthouse complete with two king-size bedrooms, a large living room with pool table, two outdoor terraces, and full kitchen
  • Drawing inspiration from geothermal energy, The Spa at The Joule offers a journey of European heat experiences, high-performance skincare treatments, and restorative body rituals. As the temperature drops, a facial from the spa is the perfect thing to prepare for colder temperatures

  • Sassetta (opened in April ’22): Inspired by the spirit of Italian living, Sassetta celebrates the simple luxuries of good food, wine, and company with an elegant, easygoing spirit. The seasonally focused menu, which will be sure to include an array of fall-centric dishes, includes house-made pastas, perfectly blistered pizzas, regional wines, and lively cocktails. 
  • CBD Provisions: CBD Provisions is a modern Texas brasserie that celebrates the natural bounty and culinary traditions of its region with a commitment to the finest ingredients and southern hospitality. The menu features a range of staples, like the famous Berkshire pig head carnitas, as well as seasonally focused offerings plus vibrant cocktails. 
  • Midnight Rambler: Inspired by the dark glamor of old-school rock ′n′ roll, The Joule’s award-winning, subterranean bar offers a unique menu, crafted by cocktail expert Gabe Sanchez, who was named 2021’s Best Bartender by the Dallas Observer. The current cocktail menu draws inspiration from iconic Dallas musicians and venues like Erykah Badu, St. Vincent, “Blind Lemon” Jefferson, and Gypsy Tea Room.
  • The Joule’s museum worthy-art collection features works by artists like Andy Warhol, Tony Cragg, Roger Hiorns, Ellsworth Kelly, and Tony Tassett – including his iconic 30-foot-tall fiberglass, resin, and steel sculpture eye (one of the most photographed, and rumor-generating fixtures on Main Street)
