The Joule

Downtown Dallas' modern marvel
The Joule sits in the heart of downtown Dallas’ business district. The main building of the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel occupies a historic structure and distinguishes itself from other façades by its striking swimming pool cantilevered eight feet to overlook Main Street.

Original marble flooring, elevators and historic staircases were combined with famed designer Adam Tihany’s contemporary aesthetic, casting a sophisticated and luxurious light through the property.

No two rooms are the same at this Dallas hotel, creating a unique experience for each guest. The rooftop space is the perfect reception area, complete with street access via a private glass elevator.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • Staying at The Joule feels a bit like staying in an art gallery. Works from nationally and internationally recognized artists are displayed about the property, perfectly placed to add a bit of modern ambiance to the spaces.
  • One of the best design elements at The Joule is Tihany’s daring glass-fronted pool. The 10th-floor pool cantilevers eight feet beyond the Dallas hotel structure, and a Plexiglas window sits at the end.
  • Another noteworthy addition to the property is the two-floor spa. The oasis is an earthy retreat with crystals, metals, stones, atmospheric lighting and the latest in spa technology.
  • The concierge can arrange house cars to escort you anywhere you need to go, offer the best restaurant recommendations or get you coveted tickets to a game.
  • A hotel this artistic and chic should have a hot bar, and The Joule delivers with Midnight Rambler. The subterranean lounge features creative cocktails from prominent Dallas bartender Gabe Sanchez, light bites and local DJs.

Things to Know
  • Further additions to The Joule experience include the Traffic LA boutique segmented into men’s, women’s and kids’ apparel.
  • Enjoy interactive installations, concerts, live-streamed events and more at AT&T Discovery District right across the street, while Klyde Warren Park, the Arts District’s urban oasis, is always buzzing with a diverse event schedule.
  • While exploring the area, be sure to also visit Pioneer Plaza on Young Street. This must-stop attraction is a 73-piece, larger-than-life sculpture of a cattle drive by Texas artist Robert Summers.
The Rooms
  • The Joule’s rooms in the original structure flaunt an aesthetic that’s decidedly interior decorator Adam Tihany’s — dark woods, steel, glass accents and deep, jewel-tone color palettes.
  • The rooms in the Forbes Travel Guide Four Star hotel's new tower are designed to excite and are considerably brighter in terms of natural light and color palette.
  • Two other elements that stand out are the 42- and 47-inch smart TVs and luxurious washrooms with expansive showers.
  • The penthouses are disarmingly fabulous and fit for Hollywood A-listers. It’s a complete living experience with entertaining and cooking space, two bedrooms split on separate levels and a wraparound balcony.
The Restaurants
  • CBD Provisions, a unique farm-to-table concept restaurant, is the primary dining option at The Joule. It features a menu that combines Texas culinary traditions with contemporary flair and locally sourced ingredients. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served daily.
  • CBD’s bar presents you with a perfect opportunity to get up close and personal with a selection of local craft beers.
  • And for the early risers at the luxury hotel, Weekend Coffee opens at 6:30 a.m. daily, and offers a variety of made-to-order java selections and tempting gourmet pastries.
  • The Joule’s new Italian restaurant, Sassetta debuted in 2022. Come to the beautiful Jean Liu-designed dining room for housemade pastas, deliciously blistered pizzas, mouthwatering desserts, regional wines and vibrant cocktails.

  • The centrally located Lobby Bar is a fitting spot to start or wind down the night. Enjoy fresh seafood and martinis surrounded by the hotel’s museum-caliber art collection.
