Making Dallas Even Better

Somebody Help This Poor Girl: Restaurant in Dallas for a Standing Reception

She’s from out of town and looking for some help from those of you in the know.

I’m looking for a restaurant venue that can hold 90-100 guests for a standing reception. Light hors d’oeuvres, alcohol, and cake will be served.

In Dallas proper. Approximate guest count: 90

Tentative date: August 31, 2014 (open to flexibility as long as it’s after August 31 and before the end of September)

Venue: Open to rooftops, dining area

Set-up: Prefer a standing reception. Need a place for the first dance. Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Any time of the day because we don’t know if we’ll do a morning or evening ceremony.

Budget: $5,000

    Plenty of great options already listed, but if you would like a casual patio vibe, then we would happily offer Boxwood T+G as an option and if you wanted a cocktail bar, lounge or nightclub ambiance, then we would happily offer candleroom or The Dram.
