What an awesome space!!! First, I wanna say thank you to the 2616 Commerce staff for allowing Yelp to transform the space into something awesome. I'm sure they were doing a lot behind the scenes that made the event go super smooth. Secondly, shout out to security for letting me get by with a picture of my DL, a student ID, and four credit cards to prove I was 21+ (especially since I don't drink at all). Hahah what a night. So the space is super cool, the bottom floor was transformed into this white wonderland with food/drink sample booths scattered around as well as dancers, henna artists, fortune tellers and more! I was only going to be able to stay for about an hour (which almost became two!) so I tried to cram as much in as possible. The always lovely Bahn Shop was there and we got to try the Dry Soda, a couple other Asian inspired places, and of course henna!! The henna artist was super sweet and did a great job, if you see this, five stars for you!! Since I'm elite, I got to go to the VIP lounge upstairs on the 4th floor (although no one was really monitoring it) which was bumpin! Unfortunately, we got there too late for a swag bag, but I got a frisbee anyways! The party poured out from the DJ's domain onto a rooftop patio decked with all kinds of alcohol and dancing. It was awesome. Fantastic job Heli and the gang! My first big Yelp event was awesome and I can't wait for the next!
A great place to make some good friends. Membership is a plus! The commander, quartermaster and their crew put together a post worth defending. My hats off to this VFW Post.......Marty
What a great event center! Parking is easily accessible. There are several different spaces actually available for use, including an area with a dance floor and a beautiful deck area that has amazing views of downtown. With the ability to accommodate several different types of events, you can rest assured that your event will be in good hands and turn out beautifully. I also love the different location of Deep Ellum!
I loved working with this venue. Three levels here were able to accommodate over 800 guests in just one night (Summer Solstice) with over 30 food, drink and entertainment vendors. The staff was easy to work with and very accommodating. They helped with all of the lighting, sound, and decor set up limiting some of the stress that comes with planning large-scale events. My favorite aspect of the space is the rooftop patio which had strung lighting and overlooked the vibrant Dallas skyline.
I recently had my wedding & reception at 2616. The venue was beautiful. We had our ceremony on the deck which has a great view of downtown. We used the 3rd floor for a cocktail hour so our guests could mingle and have a drink while we finished taking pictures and then the reception on the first floor. Our event manager realy helped us get alll the last minute things together that day which took alot of stress off of us. I would definately recommend this venue to other brides.
OK..... I know that most of the reviews about this place are horrible.... That is what I thought when I started reading... i was very nervous about the whole process... After false meetings and no returned phone calls, something happened. The management changed.. THANK GOD!!! The new General Manager is AWESOME!!! Lisa Vorwerk has turned this place around 100%!! Every review bofore this one is just that old news. Lisa V. did everything and more. She moved here from Austin and was floored at the way this venue had been handled. Trust me when I say that she will make you event the beast it can be. It rained all day during our wedding day whch is good luck, but Lisa made sure it was perfect!!
Lisa handled my event for appx 600 guests on the 1st & 2nd floor with no problem at all! she secured tabc certified bartenders, barbacks, cleaning crew (before & after), set-up event. lisa also had late night taco's brought in for midnight snack. we booked our own dj's and had one downstairs and one on the 2nd floor patio (HUGE!) that overlooks downtown. everything was great, and she was a pleasure to work with in an industry that can be very "trying" at times.
This is a GREAT venue for just about anything. I went to a wedding reception of a friend and they did a great job with it. Staff was rally atentive to details.
I recently had my wedding reception at 2616 and had a fantastic experience. I was a little worried after reading some negative reviews that had posted since we had booked the venue but then I received a call from Lisa who told me that she was the new event manager. From her first phone call I already felt better and I truly enjoyed the rest of the planning process. She spent lots of time with us and thought of all the little things I would not have. She helped me chose a caterer and arranged for bartenders to serve the alcohol since we chose to bring our own. She also reserved the parking lot next door for our guests to park. When we arrived the day of the venue was very clean and everything was set up exactly how we expected. The reception was beautiful and all the guests had only nice things to say and several even commented on how helpful the staff was. I highly recommend this venue to anyone planning an event.
I have to say that Lisa has been a huge help with my fiance and I. Her and her sister are very understanding and quick to get back to you! The venue is georgeous and they make it so much easier for the wedding, I definately would reccomend this venue to anyone that asks!!!!!
I recently held my ceremony and wedding reception here and had a fantastic experience from the initial site visit until the day of my wedding. I definitely recommend using their wedding planners. It took all of the stress away from planning such a big event. The event manager, Lisa, is very thorough She spent lots of time with us and thinks of things you probably haven't thought of. She met with me several times and we had many phone conversations while planning the wedding. I was very nervous and always felt better after talking to her. Everything turned out perfect. The reception was beautiful and the guests were all pleased. Several complimented me on how helpful the staff was. I rate this place 5 stars and highly recommend it.
