We highly recommend visiting The Joule on an empty stomach. The hotel is definitely worth a visit for the food and drink options alone, even if you don’t plan on staying in their incredible rooms!

CBD Provisions is an acclaimed Texas brasserie, famous for its Berkshire pig head carnitas. It offers a bold cocktail selection and showcases small wine producers from Texas, California, and France, plus an emphasis on the best brewers in the greater Dallas area.

Stolen from their website, The Joule’s Midnight Rambler was “inspired by the dark glamor of old-school rock n’ roll” and offers neoclassic cocktails, punches, housemade sodas, and a fun bar menu. The Joule’s Lobby Bar is the perfect spot for a nightcap or pre-dinner drink; situated in the middle of the action and artwork.

Weekend, the always-appreciated coffee stop, features fresh-roasted artisanal beverages in a relaxed and foodie-centric environment. Hint: Sample the biscuits while perusing their retail offering!

Americano is where we plan to spend some time — a vibrant Italian restaurant, inspired by ’50s and ’60s cinema. Executive Chef Matt Ford whips up comfort classics, such as Neapolitan pizzas, savory pasta, and an expansive wine list.

We’re crossing our fingers for warm weather so we can sit on the outdoor patio (we’re native New Englanders, so we might luck out!).

Finally, on our way to the airport, we’ll probably hit The Joule’s last gem:

The Taschen Library is surrounded by midcentury mosaics and bookcases. We’re just bummed to miss their weekly Tea at Taschen event, which occurs on Saturdays at 2:30 pm.
