Dallas Loft Spaces for Reception

Hi ladies,

My FI and I really like the idea of having our reception in a loft-type venue.  We've looked at a few so far and haven't had much luck.  Some are in really bad locations, some we weren't able to find on Google Maps, and one is booked.  Here is a list of places we've already/still considering:

 - Lofty Space 
 - 3rd Space (too small)
 - Hickory Street Annex (booked)
 - 7 senses (Google Maps told us the wrong directions and don't want that to happen to our guests)
 - 2616 Commerce (meeting w/them on Saturday)
 
Do you ladies know of any other loft spaces in Dallas?

Thanks!!!!

    Have you checked out Victors Event Room?

    I've also heard some of the girls talk about the Filter Building on White Rock Lake.

    ETA: Oops, Victor's Event Room is in Grand Prairie not Dallas.

    Thanks ladies!! All good venues.  I forgot to mention that we are having 200 - 225 guests and  we would prefer the venue to be in Dallas....

    I had my reception at Lofty Spaces and it was a great space!  The neighborhood is questionable, but it is easy to get to with out driving through to bad neighborhood, and he will provide a parking attendant.

    That same owner also has "Off The Grid" which is an old Power substation turned event space a few blocks from Lofty Spaces.  It has some awesome character, but it was a little small for our wedding.

    My brother is getting married at the Filter house this year, and it is more of that old 'loft' feel.

    Three Three Three is about a block from Hickory Street Annex and is a similar feel.  I went to a wedding there a few years ago, and it was beautiful.  I had an issue contacting them when I was looking, but maybe they've changed coordinators or she was having a bad month.

    Hope this helps!

    I went to a reception to Lofty Spaces and I was not thrilled with the space. I liked the space but the sound was horrible, we could not hear the dj which was on the other side of the room. My friends had a slideshow but it was too bright to actually see the pictures. The neighborhood is not very nice... I would consider something else.. just on my experience as a guest.

    I was going to book 2616 Commerce but I didn't like how they don't have exact prices. My sister called for me when I was looking at places and they gave her a different price than me. Also check out the Flight Musuem. We had our company party there last year and it was really neat. I wanted to book with them for my wedding but its too big for my guest list.

    Hmm...interesting...We're meeting with them on Saturday.  Thanks for the info; now that I know that and if we like the space, we will definitely try to bargain! :)

    Sounds like their DJ/AV guy had issues.  our DJ brought his own gear and there were no sound problems.

    I'm looking at Event 1013. Has anyone used the venue or been to a wedding there?

    We went to a wedding at Off The Grid last year and loved the loft-type feel so much we're having our wedding there this March.  I can't wait.  Our friends didn't have a problem with their dj sound.
