Dallas, TX wedding and event venue The Room on Main is probably my new favorite event space. To the naked eye, you would never know this hidden jewel was in the heart of downtown Dallas.
I traveled to Dallas to meet up with our clients to go wedding venue shopping. The Room on Main was one of their wedding venues and it was the first on our list to see. The venue which sits on the top floor of the Dallas Arts Center, allows you to see great views like the Texas Star Ferris Wheel.
As we walked towards the building, TJ greeted us which was very welcoming as normally you don’t have anyone waiting outside for you when you visit a venue.
TJ gave us some unique history on Main Street and the building itself. Did you know:
The building itself was built by the Dallas Free Masons in 1913. Dallas Lodge 760 was on the 6th floor until the building was leased to Western Union in 1919.
Jack Ruby would later in 1963, make a wire transfer from the Western Union office on the first floor and proceed outside and where he noticed commotion and continued down the Courthouse’s garage ramp where he shot Lee Harvey Oswald.
The Room on Main still has the original Hardwood Floors as well as the original Chandeliers.
5 Essential Step-by-Step To Picking Your Wedding Venue
Here are a few reasons The Room on Main is a great Dallas wedding venue.

The Dallas venue has plenty of parking.
When you arrive to the venue, there is a large parking garage right across the street. For events on the weekend, guests receive a token for complimentary parking. I don’t think you can get anything better than that. Parking is a huge concern for many event guests. Ensuring they have accessible parking that is easy to get to is a big win.
The wedding venue has amazing views.
As you walk out of the elevator you immediately see beautiful windows that draws your eyes out unto the downtown Dallas landscape. No matter what time of day, I believe any event will have stunning views.
The Room on Main has an unobstructed floorplan

Two elevators takes you up to the 6th floor to a 60 x 90 room with 30ft ceilings. Iron chandeliers gracefully hang from the ceiling adding an extra layer of glam that every wedding needs. You will not find a single pillar in the entire space. It is free from obstruction allowing guests to see every inch of the space.
There are many configurations that you can create depending on the type of event you are hosting. One of the biggest amenities are the beautiful hardwood floors. Please note that this venue only has one event space. For weddings, the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception would take place in the same space.
