About Us

Couples looking for a space filled with refined elegance need to look no further than The Room on Main. The Room on Main is a beautifully restored historic ballroom on the sixth floor of the Dallas Arts Center in Dallas, Texas. The spacious room can accommodate up to 320 guests and is an ideal venue for couples looking to host their wedding in comfortable, elegant surrounds. Natural, polished wood floors, antique chandeliers, impressive elevated ceilings and walls lined with windows create a spectacular space for their wedding. Sip champagne by the unique bar and admire its special features including the matchstick marble mosaic and granite bar top. With such ample space in the venue, couples will have the convenience of hosting both their ceremony and reception in one location. The Room on Main also offers couples the option of hosting their ceremony on the manicured lawn behind the Arts Center, for couples preferring an outdoor ceremony and an indoor reception. Whether couples prefer, indoor or outdoor, intimate or large, The Room on Main will be able to accommodate their every wish.

Couples will appreciate the versatility of the space and the variety of ways that the ballroom can be personalized. The amount of natural light from the window-lined walls makes this a great daytime or evening ceremony or reception location. A soft, neutral color palette and champagne drapes are welcoming additions to just about any color scheme couples choose. The dramatically high ceilings of the ballroom are inviting for tall floral arrangements and candlelit lighting and small, elegant touches like wood lines along the dance floor will be sure to impress guests. Tables and Chiavari chairs are included in the wedding package and can be personalized with bows in the wedding colors.

I can't say enough wonderful things about The Room on Main. From the first time I toured until the time I walked out at the end of my wedding night, they were tremendous! They helped me every step of the way with details, finalizing items, answering questions timely. The service... Read More is unbeatable. We didn't have to worry about a thing. The staff took care of it all, without having to be asked. The Captains we had were amazing. They answered any question my mom had or any of our guests needed. We received too many compliments to count. Thank you for taking away the stress and getting the job done. It made my night so much more enjoyable! Alma was amazing throughout the process and extremely helpful. The venue is also GORGEOUS. I am biased, but it was perfect for my wedding. Thank you all!

Have you ever made a wish and it come true beyond your wildest dreams? Well, that’s exactly what happened when we had our wedding ceremony and reception at the remarkable Room on Main. I will tell you right now, you simply must go there to see it … to believe it! It is the... Read More most magnificent 5,000 sq. ft. ball room you will ever see with those 30 ft. tall ceilings, 20 ft. tall neutral-draped windows engulfing 3 walls, and vintage chandeliers throughout the gorgeous ceiling. There’s really not much else you have to do to make the room look superb, but our florist made it look uniquely like our own ballroom. Pamela and Jessica from the Room on Main and certainly, David, with CN Catering went above and beyond to make our day absolutely perfect! The planning was so simple (with them being the pros that they are) and it made my planning a piece of cake, which is quite the exception with me being the perfectionist that I am. As the day approached, I kept expecting to get nervous about the arrangements. However, I just knew it was going to come off without a hitch from having worked with them for those months in advance. On the day of the wedding, I simply focused on us, cast my worries to the wind, and Viola! … It was a Wedding Day Made in Heaven!! Everything was prepared and provided promptly as promised! The tables were perfectly arranged. The food tasted superb and loved by all, (with many people going back for seconds)! The attendants were spot-on with their service and the evening was sheer perfection! Should you follow in our footsteps, you will never regret it … for it will be as if you followed in Cinderella’s glass slippers. Just check it out … you’ll see! It was magical!

Let me start out with the pros! - The venue is gorgeous! We immediately fell in love when we walked in. The high ceilings and big windows are a show stopper. - CN Catering is the required caterer at this venue. Their food was awesome! We had the brisket (which melted in your...

They were fine when they were communicating via email, but in person they weren’t the most pleasant. - They made my parents take out the bulk trash..This to me is unacceptable and rude. We paid a lot of money for the wait staff and yet they asked the parents of the bride to do this (which they did). Other than that we had a great experience!

For brides and grooms looking for a venue with integrity, service, partnership and professionalism, the Room on Main is not for you. While the location is beautiful and the food was tasty, it's not worth it. On the night of event I arrived to a room filled with toxic fumes.... Read More The event crew failed to alert me that the wooden floors had been treated and that there would be a horrible chemical odor at my event. Some of my guests left early because of the fumes and I was mortified and embarrassed. A week after my event I hadn't heard from the ROM event team, no one called or emailed to check in and importantly, no one apologized for the odor and for not telling me. Rather I was told that the event team took a consensus vote and decided it was okay to have the fumes at my $25K+ reception. No financial restitution was made. Simply, I was told that I would get a survey in the mail a week or so after the event and could provide my feedback there. During the planning process with the ROM team, my wedding planner and I noticed on 2 occasions that items that we had not asked for or discussed would appear on our bill. Again, no apology and if we had not asked about it, I'm sure we would have been charged. Lastly, our meetings with the event planning team were at best indifferent. At the first private meeting, the event manager was late (did not apologize) and was rude. ABORT, ABORT this venue.
