THE SCENE: The historic Le Méridien Dallas, Stoneleigh Hotel was the recent setting for a night in honor of one of Dallas’ most historic and beloved venues that also celebrated a historic milestone of the hotel. Several hundred of the city’s most notable sociables, community leaders, and history lovers descended upon the hotel to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the historic landmark, an Art Deco masterpiece in Dallas’ Uptown District.

THE VIBE: The speakeasy-chic crowd donned their finest Roaring 20s attire, and were dazzled from the moment they arrived at the hotel, as guests were treated to a series of activations throughout the top two floors of the venue. Revelers began the night in the 11th-floor Grand Salon where they cozied up to the bar to grab a custom-crafted, speakeasy cocktail mingled with other guests. Food lovers were also in for a treat, as the room featured a 1920s-inspired menu of hors d’oeuvres that included a 1923 Peppered Filet Mignon.

Throughout the evening, attendees were encouraged to visit the Woerner Suite to view custom photos of the storied history of the hotel and the Spencer Suite where patrons could bid on an impressive silent auction that featured an array of luxury travel packages. The night culminated on the 12th floor where partygoers could view the vintage design legend Dorothy Draper suite, allowing guests to take in the designs of the first female interior design firm owner in the United States. After that, the fun moved outside to the 12th-floor Penthouse Suite terrace where patrons were able to take advantage of the perfect Fall weather, enjoy views of the iconic Dallas skyline, and toast the success of a picture-perfect evening.

THE NON-PROFIT: Proceeds raised from the event benefited Preservation Dallas. Founded in 1972, the organization dedicates resources to help preserve and revitalize historic neighborhoods, buildings, and places within Dallas.
