I am so thankful I found 2616 Commerce Event Center for our wedding!!! I wanted something unique and different without being too far out there and after searching different venues in Dallas over a couple of weeks I was actually starting to get a little discouraged that I would... Read More have to settle on a venue instead of finding our dream venue. That was until we walked into 2616. It was everything I was hoping for and Lisa, the venue coordinator was absolutely wonderful and helped make the process and everything we wanted for our wedding so much fun! Our wedding ceremony was in the penthouse and we had just under 150 guests in attendance. After the ceremony everyone moved outside to the Sky Deck for cocktail hour on a gorgeous day!! I was so thankful it didn't rain because this deck and the views were one of my FAVORITE things about this venue and I would have been devastated if we couldn't have used it! After cocktail hour we moved down to the commerce room for a reception that was better then we could have ever dreamed! I'm going to cross my fingers for another event or something so I can go back to this venue. Everything was beautiful and exactly what we pictured and wanted. Thank so so much Lisa and ALL of the 2616 Commerce Event Center staff!!!

I'm so happy we chose 2616 Commerce as our wedding venue. The space has so much to offer!! We planned our ceremony in the penthouse (on the top floor), then a short cocktail hour on the patio, and reception downstairs. If your looking for an elegant urban downtown loft look this... Read More is your venue! Lisa was an absolute dream to work with. She was so easy to get in contact with throughout the whole planning process. For the ceremony I had a cow skull that I had decorated with flowers and I wanted it hung at the altar and Lisa made it happen! She even helped set up our sparkler send off. She truly made our wedding vision come true. Since the wedding we have had numerous compliments on our venue choice. HIGHLY reccomend this venue.

Our organization hosted its annual holiday party at 2616 Commerce and we were extremely pleased with the experience. The event required use of the entire venue and took several months for us to arrange the details. Needless to say, we depended heavily on Jill and Lisa to...

The day of the event was very well planned and executed by them and they went out of their way to make sure we were happy. I highly recommend 2616 Commerce for your event. Hopefully, we will return in the near future to treat our members with another special evening.

Amazing venue, frustrating service

Reviewed on 9/22/2015 Robin S

We had the penthouse and deck for our reception; the view is fantastic and the price includes much of what is needed- tables, chairs, linens, vases, and some decor. We had a live band, catering, and brought our own alcohol- our caterer provided bartenders, who were incredibly... Read More nice. I highly recommend the space! However, you will have to deal with the planners, who can be frustrating. Our contact gave little advice/suggestions throughout the process, never seemed to be giving us her full (or even half) attention, never remembered what we had talked about in planning meetings, rarely took notes, was slow to respond to emails/calls, never even brought a pen to meetings and left with mine 3 times!! That being said, if you are okay with making your own decisions and following up to ensure follow through on the other end, the venue is TOTALLY worth it!! We did more of a DIY, so it wasn't a problem for us, just frustrating at times. But the space was ready for us and clean on time the day of. We did have to request some changes because they had the wrong tables set out for designated things, like the sweetheart table and the gift table. But, again, I could not have been happier than I was dancing on the deck with my guests to my favorite musicians, with downtown Dallas as the backdrop.


Great Venue

We absolutely loved this venue. It has a great mix of industrial but also plush. Everyone commented on how cool it was and they all loved the rooftop patio. Lisa was also great to work with. The single hiccup we had was with the parking. If you decide to pay for the lot, make... Read More sure you understand the terms.

Our experience at 2616 Commerce was amazing! Lisa and her sister was very very very patient with us and our planner.

We really enjoyed our wedding at 2616 Commerce. The lighting, decor and set up was amazing. Lisa did a great job at bringing our vision to life. She went above and beyond our expectations. She took it upon herself to communicate with all our vendors to make sure everything... Read More was in order even if they were not on her vendor list. I only have one thing I was a bit concerned with during the planning process with Lisa. At times it would be difficult to get in contact with her if I wanted to reach her. But once the time came to make sure everything was in order she was definitely on her A game. All in all 2616 commerce was a great experience, I would refer them in a minute and would definitely think of having another event held at this location.

Disappointment

Reviewed on 4/30/2012 B C

DO NOT plan an event here. Beautiful space, although it is very dirty and cluttered. We had our wedding here and were incredibly disappointed in the staff for the venue. The venue staff is disorganized, irresponsible, non-responsive, they even no-showed us for our final planning... Read More meeting that I confirmed twice in the week leading up to it.......I could go on and on. Randy- I believe he is the owner, will give you every excuse in the book for why nothing is done correctly. They are unable to keep event staff on hand, as we quickly found out in the initial planning stages when one quit and another quit returning our calls/emails altogether. Her name was Karmen Pannell- I believe she is a private wedding planner in DFW area. I would not use her though, very unresponsive- also lots of excuses for why she is always so unavailable. 1) When we arrived for our wedding ceremony, not one table, chair, aisle, or bar had been set up. Our wedding party plus husbands/wives had to scramble around like madmen to set it all up ourselves in a very short period of time. We were told by the venue staff that this would all be done the night before. However, given their terrible track record so far, we made sure to arrive early in case there was a problem. Our hair and make-up was basically destroyed due to all the manual labor we had to do to set up. So much for a relaxing start to your wedding day! 2) The venue staff told us that 150 parking spots would be provided free of charge. As our wedding party started to arrive, we were asked to pay $5 a car. I'm not sure what happened for the rest of the night as we are about to begin communication with our attorneys regarding several of these issues. Luckily, most of our guests had no idea that anything was wrong once we finally got the ceremony started (late, I might add b/c we had no time to get dressed!). This is not due in any part to the 2616 employees/staff/mgmt. The only thing their event staff did for us that night was set up the dance floor after the ceremony. Some of their staff even came upstairs to take decorative trees from our reception to use in another event going on downstairs!! My understanding is that the other event happening on our date had their fair share of problems too. Overall, I'm in agreement with Roger W. Until there is a new manager or owner, I'd never consider this venue again. It's a real shame because it really is a cool venue.
