It’s no wonder food is at the heart of Marc Events, a company owned by entrepreneur and chef Marc DePetris. Choose from one of two venues: M The Venue, featuring six custom lounge areas, a large stage and beautiful bar, or The Chandelier Room, boasting 15 — you guessed it — chandeliers to make for a sparkly holiday affair. From event planning and lighting design to equipment rentals and a spectacular catering menu, your holiday soiree is in good hands here.
The Empire Room
Thrill your guests with a party at The Empire Room, an 8,000-square-foot customizable indoor/outdoor space with a unique view of Dallas’ skyline.

Looking to add a little spice to this year’s holiday celebrations? Check out what El Bolero has to offer. Choose from the patio, with its own private bar, or a semi-private room that seats up to 50. If you need just a little more space, you can rent out the entire restaurant. Your guests will love the private tortilla making station, fresh guacamole and margarita machines. Off-site catering is also available and includes professional staff and serving equipment.
For a more intimate gathering, consider Oak Restaurant’s semi-private dining area, The Mighty Oak. Sheer curtains separate your party of up to 12 from the rest of the dining room but can be pulled back if you want a more open experience. There’s also the Champagne Room, a slightly larger private space on the enclosed, temperature-controlled terrace, which can accommodate 45 to 75 people. If you have an extra-large party, ask about buying out the entire restaurant.
Ditch the traditional holiday fare this year with a gathering on the patio at Pakpao Thai. You and your guests can enjoy authentic Thai creations by celebrity chef Jet Tila, culinary ambassador of Thai cuisine. Feast on dishes inspired by the streets of Bangkok, knowing you've planned a holiday party to remember. Pakpao Thai also provides off-site catering if your venue is already set.
The Meddlesome Moth
A celebration at The Meddlesome Moth is sure to get people into holiday mode. Along with a chef-driven menu of eclectic share plates, guests can enjoy one of the most extensive craft beer selections in the Lone Star State. Depending on the size of your party, you can decide to rent the semi-private room, the covered patio or the entire bar.
Texas Ale Project
Perfecting the art of craft beer since the late 1800s, Texas Ale Project is the first brewery built from the ground up in Dallas. Rent out the rooftop patio for your party, and you and your guests can enjoy year-round beers such as 100 Million Angels Singing and Fire Ant Funeral or try one of the limited-release beers such as Naked Truth or Somethin’ Shady.
Big parties, little parties, corporate parties, family parties — whatever your holiday party entails, look to the Dallas Design District for unique venues to meet all your event needs. Let the partying begin!
