The Joule Dallas
A massive renovation has made this jewel of a boutique hotel even more precious, thanks to the addition of retailers such as Traffic Los Angeles and TenOverSix and The Spa at the Joule, the subterranean spa. The chic, contemporary space designed by Adam D. Tihany is accented with museum-quality artwork created by artists from Texas and beyond. Rooms are decked out with black wood floors, custom Italian woodwork, ivory calfskin leather headboards, original Bram Tihany black-and-white photography, down pillows and comforters, 300-thread-count sheets, and martini bars. The Joule Pool affords spectacular city views and plenty of people-watching opportunities. Need a jolt? Then head to Weekend, the coffee shop concept created by the TenOverSix girls.
