The Joule announced the debut of its reimagined ballroom level, transformed by award-winning designer Adam D. Tihany. The invigorated 10,200-square-foot flexible indoor event space’s ballroom level boasts three distinct meeting rooms, a pre-function area, and three ballrooms. The new palette is soft and neutral with accents of navy and sage, shifting from the previous design marked by stronger color fabrics and dark woods. The corridors, featuring floor-to-ceiling views of downtown, are upgraded with an iridescent wall covering that is intercepted by handmade cork wallpaper in the pre-function, while the ballroom is adorned with a luminous fabric. Beyond the custom-designed chandeliers and furnishings that have been artfully curated throughout the space to complement the contemporary design, the spaces offer new, innovative culinary offerings. Inspired by celebrity green rooms, the “Build Your Own Rider Requirement” allows guests to satisfy their sweet tooth with a candy bar, custom trail mix table and more.
