SOCIAL GATHERINGS

Whether you are looking to host your next bar mitzvah, birthday, or retirement party, Irving has the ideal venue for you. Hotels, restaurants, and meeting spaces can all serve as excellent choices for your next social gathering depending on the size of your group and the type of event you plan to host.

Be the Host with the Most

If you think you’ll have guests traveling for your special occasion, you may want to choose a venue with easy access to the DFW Airport. And if your group wants to make a weekend of it, whether for a family reunion or a wedding, hotels make good options.

Comfort Inn DFW Airport North fits the bill with free transportation to and from the airport, well-appointed rooms, and functional gathering space. The 900-square-foot Texas Room and 360-square-foot Boardroom, for example, can be arranged for any event and any party size. Set the room up for a reception, banquet, or conference and let the friendly Comfort Inn staff help make your gathering special. What’s more, the hotel puts you and your guests near some sought-after Irving-area attractions: Texas Motor Speedway, Six Flags Over Texas, AT&T Stadium, Grapevine Mills Mall, and others.

Also near the airport, you’ll find gourmet Italian restaurant Bruno’s Ristorante in Irving’s Valley Ranch neighborhood. Bruno’s Ristorante has four private dining areas to accommodate groups of various sizes, making it an ideal location for social gatherings. The glass-enclosed outer dining room can hold up to 50 people, with a beautiful view of the Valley Ranch canal. Bright and open by day, this room transforms into an elegant venue by night, perfect for rehearsal dinners or birthday parties. The large interior room has a classic Tuscan décor and easily fits up to 40 guests. The third dining area adjoins the large interior room and can comfortably hold up to 24 guests, just right for smaller parties. Depending on your needs, you can also book all three of the larger rooms to host up to 100 guests.

If you’d like to take advantage of all that Irving’s Entertainment District has to offer, look no further than Las Colinas for your venue. The Residence Inn Dallas - Las Colinas, just down the street from the Las Colinas Country Club, has two event rooms with almost 1,000 square feet of event space. Take advantage of special group rates and enjoy complimentary breakfast made fresh every morning. Before and after your event, you and your guests can enjoy the outdoor pool area and Sport Court. At night, keep the champagne chilled and your feet warm in roomy suites that have kitchens and fireplaces.

Las Colinas restaurant Via Real also offers private dining for intimate social gatherings. Via Real specializes in Southwestern-inspired fine dining. Two nearly identical garden rooms are spacious and provide an indoor patio-like atmosphere with large windows, beautiful plants, and warm fireplaces. Each room individually seats up to 45 guests. The restaurant’s Santa Fe room seats up to 32 guests and features beautiful copper and warm wood accents with shuttered adobe-style interior windows. For smaller groups, the ambient and inviting Sedona room can seat up to 20 guests.
