Dallas Historical Society presents Pour Yourself into History
Dallas Historical Society will present a happy hour to learn about the unique history of one of Dallas’ most iconic places, Hilton Anatole. Guests can socialize, help support a local business, eat, and "drink in" local history in a fun, relaxed, and enjoyable setting.
The storied past of Lowes Anatole (1979-1995), Wyndham Anatole (1995-2006), and Hilton Anatole (2006-present) is rich. It includes hosting the 1984 Republican National Convention with Presidents Reagan and Bush. Come hear more about this and other events, share your memories, and tour this landmark hotel during its Ruby Anniversary.
Since opening its doors in 1979, the hotel has cemented its place as Dallas’s leading hotel with a seven-acre park, resort pool, rare collection of international art, 600,000-square-feet of space to host notable events and more. Prior to 1979, the largest meeting hotel in the U.S. had 580 rooms. When the Dallas landmark hotel opened in January of 1979 with 900 rooms it became the largest meeting hotel in the United States.
This milestone year for the hotel coincides with Hilton’s 100th anniversary in 2019. As Hilton prepares to mark a century of innovation, Hilton Anatole is proud to look back on the positive impact it has had on Dallas and the meetings and events industry over the last 40 years.
