If you’re looking for something a little more rustic or vintage feeling in the downtown Dallas area, you just can’t do better than Hickory Street Annex. This historic venue is located in the Deep Ellum part of town, just a stone’s throw from Fair Park, and offers a wonderfully authentic space for wedding ceremonies and receptions.
The building itself is an older industrial space – think exposed metal beams, brick walls, and a fab wooden ceiling – and has a great view of downtown, without putting you 30 stories up. Built in 1921, it retains a unique flavor, but also offers a blank canvas for couples to bring in their own feel and style.
The venue can hold up to 250 for a reception-only event; for both ceremony and reception, Hickory Street can accommodate 200 comfortably. Rental fees include tables and either gold chiavari chairs or wooden folding chairs. Linens can be ordered from any one of several companies through Hickory Street’s staff.
Catering is available through any of the companies on Hickory Street’s approved list, and alcohol can be provided by the client or by the caterer. Hickory Street Annex has ample parking, with an overflow lot across the street. Only one event can be booked each day, so you know that you will have the property to yourselves!
One of our favorite areas in Hickory Street Annex is The Studio, which is included in all Saturday rentals and can be added on other days. It’s a fantastic cocktail hour space, allowing your guests to enjoy beverages and appetizers while your photographer finishes photos of the empty room upstairs. It’s also a great space for a photo booth! The shelves outside The Studio can be filled with photos, knick knacks, bunting, floral – you name it! It gives you a chance to put your personal stamp on the entryway and make your guests feel at home.
In the words of Hickory Street’s team, “We love weddings, it’s a very special time. It can be stressful and emotional but also very happy and exciting. We like to make life easy on the couples and their family. Planning a wedding should be fun, and memorable. We want our couples and their family to walk away with a night full of happy memories and awesome pictures.”
