Red carpet ready, An Eventective User from Arlington, TX

I couldn't have picked a more perfect place to host my birthday. At first site I knew this is where I wanted to have my party. It had everything I was looking for plus more for my Masquerade themed party. One of the best things is that I did not have to decorate which would have cost a fortune, but this place came ready with all the bells and whistles. From the antique furniture to the amazing décor this place is beyond perfect. Thanks again Eric, Angela, and Billy for being so amazing throughout everything.

I highly recommend this space for any private event. The staff were incredibly helpful and cordial with myself and all the guests.


QUIXOTIC WORLD, An Eventective User from Dallas, TX

I'd give it 10 stars if I could! It is actually a magical place: from the very first moment I entered the venue and met Eric I felt the magic and I knew that was the place for my Birthday Bash. Eric was super nice, flexible and always accommodating my needs. He was always very helpful and always answered all my e-mails super promptly (even when he was out of town). I new it was the place! and I couldn't imagine that actually it exceeded all my expectations. All the staff were simply the best: super nice, professional and very helpful. We had a blast with Jeff and his magic tricks :) All my friends were so amazed, they really had a great time, some of them even told me it was the best B-day party they've ever been. It was a great success and I had the time of my life, did't need to worry about anything. Thank you guys!!! you're awesome!!! Inigo & Nagore.


Incredible Venue!, An Eventective User from Frisco

This is such a cool space, made all the better by an incredible staff. Thank you so much for making our 20th Anniversary so incredible


"Excellent Service/ Beautiful Venue, An Eventective User from Desoto

Let me tell you the real!!!! This venue maybe by far one of the best venues in Dallas! I hit up several venues, for parties, promotions, music events, etc. and the experience was so memorable. This was my own personal event I threw for my daughter, a two year old, and she had the time of her life. Even my very conservative parents and my Pastor attended the party and they had a hellafun!!! It was amazing to see what seems to be an adult venue become kid-friendly in a flash.... Billy, Jeff, and Eric, thank you for a such a wonderful time... I will surely be holding another event there! Thanks again!


Perfect Venue, An Eventective User from Dallas

We've been here for a ton of events, but last weekend we held our 10 year vow renewal ceremony at The Quixotic World. I could not have asked for a more attentive staff, or a better time. Everything was perfect, and Billy helped me get things situated so that I could relax and enjoy myself. I love this place, and it will always be on the top of my list anytime I need to hold an event.


Coolest Venue!, An Eventective User from Dallas, TX

We had our charity masquerade event here, and it was FABULOUS! The staff was amazing and helped with set-up, tear down and all of our needs during the event. The place was clean, easy to access and already decorated! Between the light shows, the music, the masks/hats on the walls, the screens playing videos, the tarot card reader and the silks aerialist, our guests loved it! Thanks Eric and Billy for all of your help and we'll be back next year!


Perfect event, charity venue, An Eventective User from Aubrey

Loved the place and the manager that assisted with everything. Made our night go smoothly. Will recommend this location to everyone.


What an amazing Venue!, An Eventective User from Dallas, TX

What an amazing venue. We had a Masquerade Charity Event at this location last Saturday night. It was fantastic... not only did we need to do minimal decorating of the venue.. because it is has FABULOUS ambiance... but the staff was amazing. I am looking forward to hosting events at The Quixotic World again in the future. Truly a Grand Experience!!!


Quixotic is the place to hold a great event! , An Eventective User from Westbank, B.C. Canada

What can I say about this incredible venue and the amazing staff that run it. A family run venture, from Adele, and her sons Jeff and Eric, to Billy and his outstanding presence in the room! Everyone was accommodating, helpful, kind and caring, and they enjoyed that we enjoyed our event as well. Everything you need is there, and I wish I could attend a party there every weekend. If you are looking for something totally out of the ordinary then this is it! Thank you so much Quixotic, you are 10 STAR and above! Darryl F. Stewardson and Stacy Moscotti, #IsaPride NYKO 2016.

Perfectly Different, An Eventective User from Burleson, Texas

We had our wedding here on October 17th. We had the most fun ever. The bartenders were very professional and personable. Billy, the manager/mad hatter, went above and beyond for us. After the wedding he even took us on a tour of Deep Ellum to help us find a bar to keep the party going a little longer!


Perfect Party Venue, An Eventective User from Irving, Texas

I want to Thank you and wonderful staff for helping me give my husband the best birthday party ever. I have nothing but gratitude to you for working with me on my payment plan and organizing my event. You have been so friendly and pleasure to talk to. I cannot say enough about Billy!! He took care of so many details that I would not have thought of. He was very tentative to all of our needs and kept constant communication with us. Billy really help me relax and enjoy the party and not stress over small things. Angie and Jeff also did a wonderful job as bartenders. We did have a hiccup with kegs regulator but they were so professional and helped us work thru it. The venue was absolutely beautiful. People are asking about it on facebook and instagram when they saw party guest pictures. My friends and family who attended cannot stop talking to other people on what a perfect beautiful venue “Quixotic World” is.


Wonderful Experience!, An Eventective User from Dallas, TX

What a WOW factor!! Guests were of all ages and loved this place. Whatever the occasion QW will host a great time for all. Attending staff were the most accommodating - LOVE THEM!! Will use again and highly recommend!


Great event space, An Eventective User from Dallas, tx

The staff at Quixotic World was very helpful and patient in planning out celebration of life for a friend who had passed away. I would definitely use the event space again for another get together.


16th Birthday party, An Eventective User from Plano, Tx

Perfect birthday party for a 16 year old Girl! The kids had a blast, and danced all night! Eric is very enthusiastic and was determined to make my daughters's party memorable. I would definitely recommend The Quixotic World for a fun sweet 16 or any event.


Perfect Venue, An Eventective User from Dallas

Service and staff is excellent!


Great Venue for a Sweet 16 Party!, An Eventective User from Southlake, TX

The Quixotic World is a very unique venue, and you won't find anything else like it anywhere in the DFW metroplex. Eric Sacks is a very attentive owner and host. He made sure we had everything we needed for my daughter's Sweet 16 Party. The teens loved the venue! The rental rate is more than reasonable, and most of the decorating has already been done for you! It's a very popular venue, so, if you're looking for some place out of the ordinary to host your event, you might want to book soon!


End of Year/Holiday Party, An Eventective User from AUSTIN, TX

We had our End of Year/Holiday Party at Quixotic and it was AMAZING. The venue is beautiful and full of fun surprises around every corner. Eric and his staff were friendly, professional and helpful. The entertainment that Eric helped us get (magician, caricature artist and tarot reader) were all extremely good. I keep hearing over and over that this is the best party we have EVER had as a company. It was, honestly, Epic. If you are planning an event, this is the venue to use.


A Magical Space for a Whimsical Wedding, An Eventective User from Dallas, TX

We were lucky enough to hold our wedding ceremony and reception at The Quixotic World, and it could not have been any smoother. The place speaks for itself, so I recommend seeing it in person. Every time I stopped by the venue during the planning process, I was unable to keep a smile from my face. If you hold your event here, your guests will feel the same way. The owner is one of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He made it very easy for us to have our wedding our way. All of our guests had an amazing time, and many said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. This is in no small part thanks to all the amazing work they do at The Quixotic World, and the stress-free environment they create.


Perfect Party Venue - Sweet 16, An Eventective User from DALLAS, TX

I recently hosted my daughter's Sweet 16 party here. Everyone loved the venue!!! The central location was great. The guests really liked the unique decor. The party included a vocal performance by my daughter, Evan Michelle, so the stage was just perfect. More importantly, as the host, it was such a pleasure working with Eric Sacks, the owner. Eric makes every effort to ensure your event is awesome. The booking process was seemless and professional and the attentiveness prior and during the event was spot on! Eric is straighforward, professional and quite personable. This venue served as the foundation for an indelible celebration for my daughter. We are grateful.


Wonderful Unique Magical Venue, An Eventective User from Granbury, Texas

If you are wanting a unique and wonderful experience for your special event, you need to check out Quixotic World. The Quixotic World offers you that one of kind experience that is hard to find. We had our twin’s sweet sixteen party there and Eric was not only helpful, he made it very stress free for us. The staff during the party was excellent and we purchased additional entertainment that added to the party all through Eric and they were Great! We would recommend The Quixotic World over and over again. Our party was a success and we would like to Thank Eric and his staff for making it a great event for us and our daughters!


Awesome birthday party venue, An Eventective User from Dallas

I recently celebrated my 40th birthday at Quixotic. The venue was perfect and Eric, the owner was very attentive and professional. I never had to be concerned with him not returning emails. I would highly recommend this spot for a party. The staff was attentive and the location is great. Five star experience!!!


Great Party/Celebration Spot, An Eventective User from Duncanville

Just Celebrated a B-Day milestone at this venue and had a Great Time! The theme, vibe and style of this place was just what I was looking for. Loved the open floor plan (it gave plenty room for dancing), the upstairs green room, the two video screens, VIP areas, long bar and stage, where we danced behind the white screen. Also, Eric was accommodating, friendly, professional and Awesome to work with. I Highly recommend this Spot!

Great Christmas Party, An Eventective User from Dallas

Eric, the owner, was absolutely wonderful to work with. His brother, Victor, the bartender was great, along with their entire staff. The Venue is especially perfect for a Christmas party because it is already festively decorated. It is also easy to find because it is just downtown on the corner of Main Street.


2013 Witches' Ball benefiting In-Sync Exotics, An Eventective User from Witches' Ball Charities

I had been to The Quixotic World many times as a patron. When I first began planning the first annual Witches' Ball charity event, The Quixotic World came to mind immediately. It is decorated so wonderfully and the open layout is very good for a variety of configurations. Eric and his staff were very accommodating and helpful. I will definitely be using TQW for future events.


Great Party Place, An Eventective User from Cedar Hill, TX

I hosted my daughter's sweet sixteen at the Q last night and she had an awesome time! The venue was perfect! The red carpet outside was a nice touch and the little placquerd indicating private event made it even better for the 16 year olds (who felt like VIP). Because it is already uniquely decorated inside, it made the decorations we added pop and really complemented the 20's theme party. The upstairs dressing area was fabulous as well. My daughter felt like a movie star changing for her party in the private dressing area; in addition, it was a great space for the performers to dress and rehearse. The kids most enjoyed the shadow curtain on stage! What an excellent idea! Eric was wonderful to work with from beginning to end! He was onsite during the entire event and had a staff person there to assist as well. He consistently checked with me throughout the night to make sure we had everything we needed. All of my vendors and many of the parents who stopped in and spoke to Eric said that he provided exceptional service and some are considering hosting events at Quixotic now. I hope so because I would love to go back! I'd recommend this spot to anyone looking for a great venue with a great owner!


Great Space for Events, An Eventective User from

We've hosted The Vinyl Thoughts Art Show at The Quixotic World three times now. We honestly feel this is one of the best rental venues of it's size in Dallas. Eric and his crew always take very good care of us. Plus, you can't beat the built-in items that come with the venue: bar, DJ booth, PA system, stage and green room are all included. Definitely give Eric a call to check out this space for your event.


Amazing party space, An Eventective User from Dallas

This is my second year booking this venue for my birthday party and I honestly can't imagine going somewhere else. Eric and his staff are incredibly accommodating and kind, and go out of their way to make sure that everything is executed exactly the way I want it. Their rates are reasonable considering how fantastic the space is, and Eric will work with you to make your dream event a reality. The space is very cool, clean and nice, with professional lighting, sound equipment and a lovely stage. The big projector screens, unique furniture and great comfortable spaces make for awesome lounging and fun photo backgrounds. We have had burlesque dancers each year and they LOVE the spacious, well-designed green room and the ease of performing here. I love Quixotic World and so do all of my friends who attend the party!!!


Perfect party venue, An Eventective User from Dallas

This place is awesome! The decorations make it look magical and beautiful. It was so easy to make a reservation and the owner was very helpful in making sure everything ran smoothly. We all loved the place and it was perfect for dancing!! Really a beautiful place with lots of cool features like sound system, smoke screen, and white screen on stage that you can dance behind and only your shadow appears. really great!


AWESOME!!!!!, An Eventective User from Dallas area

AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!! A great location, cool set up inside. It's the perfect venue for parties, receptions - even a small concert or something. A great stage, great sound system. AWESOME service by Eric - I will use this place again.


Perfect Venue! Excellent Staff!, An Eventective User from Dallas, TX

We held a nightclub event with The Quixotic World March 2013. We were extremely pleased with the level of professionalism and integrity we received from Eric Sacks, the owner, the bar team and his staff. The venue is beautiful and our patrons absolutely loved it!! We will plan to partner with The Quixotic World for our future activities. Byron Laszlo; Founder Lord Byron's PANOPTIKON


Best Wedding Venue Around!, An Eventective User from Dallas, TX

My wife and I just held our wedding at The Quixotic World and we couldn t be happier. Eric was very easy to work with, attentive and laid back at the same time. He made everything easy from the beginning of the booking process and was even on hand at the event itself to make sure we had everything we needed and everything was running smoothly. At one point Eric even noticed that my wife had lost and earring and dropped everything to help her look for it. The staff was professional, courteous, and everybody on hand really went above and beyond to make sure that everybody was happy and everything ran smoothly. I m still amazed at what a wonderful job Eric and his staff did. It s a beautiful venue, with a great sound system. I can t imagine our wedding any place else, and I can t recommend The Quixotic World highly enough for any event you might want to have there.


Amazing Venue! Amazing Staff! Amazing Everything, An Eventective User from Los Angeles

I own and produce a traveling art and fashion show, Sugar Art and Fashion Show. We recently hosted our show at the Quixotic World and it was probably one of the best experiences I ve ever had working with a venue, and I have been doing this for a long time. Eric was incredibly helpful, attentive, positive, and incredibly hospitable. Not to mention the space is gorgeous and well thought out. It was more than a pleasure and a treat working with Eric and his staff and I would do it again in a heartbeat.


Awesome event space!, An Eventective User from Dallas

I was looking for something different, unusual, and metaphorically off the beaten path, and Quixotic world Magical Theater is just that!! I threw my husband's 50th birthday party here, and it was amazing!! We had a KISS tribute band, and it fit perfectly we the crazy fun theme of this party! EVERYONE was blown away!! "How did you find thisPictures on the website are true to reality, except reality is even better! place!!?" And "THIS is an amazing venue!!" We're echoed throughout the night.Pictures on the website are true to reality, except reality is even better! The even had a dressing room (green room) for the entertainment to comfortably get ready (and KISS) needs lots of space and mirrors for getting ready, believe me!). Every picture we took at the party looks ultimately cool! Truly a one of a kind venue for a one of a kind party. It was like stepping into another world! In addition, the owner, Eric, is incredible! He was there to catered to whatever we needed ( which wasn't much, honestly! ) The hat wall and hula hoops were a big hit among both young and old! Beautiful decor needed NO additional decoration! We opted for a cash bar using Eric's bartender, Billy, and everyone felt very well attended to! Absolutely the best birthday party I have ever been to, much less thrown! You will not be disappointed!


Great Venue, An Eventective User from Richardson

This venue is AMAZING! It has an entire atmosphere of its own. Eric was terrific to work with- always a quick email response, very accommodating, and very willing to work with you on your budget. I literally didn't have to bring a single decoration, as the venue simply didn't need any. The stage was great to take pictures on, he had a great sound system, the bar was extremely large for serving both food and drinks, the lounge areas were very comfortable and a little more private, the upstairs is beautiful and a great place to get ready, and the lights/fog machine were a great touch. We used the venue for our sorority theme party with a circus theme. It went perfect with the style of the place! Overall, I was extremely happy with the venue and so was my sorority- they said it was the best one yet! I HIGHLY recommend The Quixotic World! :)


Great Place to See a Movie, An Eventective User from San Antonio

One of the greatest spaces I have ever been lucky enough to share! Eric and Billy were awesome in getting our event rolling and providing awesome service the night of the event as bar tender, A/V experts, and sign hangers. An amazing space that was able to meet all of our needs. Completely funky and fun, and definitely a space to be checked out. The hats were an extra bonus!


For those who think outside the box, An Eventective User from Grand Prairie, Texas

My fiancee and I stopped by The Quixotic World to check it out and see if we'd like to have our wedding there, and it is utterly fabulous! The photographs on the website do not do it justice. Every detail is stunning. A lot of really hard work, love, and personality has gone into this place. Eric, the owner is warm, friendly, and completely charming. I would HIGHLY recommend this venue to anyone looking for a unique, beautiful, roomy and yet cozy place for their party, wedding, concert, or event. Eric Sacks has created a real life fairytale smack dab in the middle of Dallas. Covenant parking is in two nearby lots, and arrangements can be made to book them for the night for your guests, or it's only $4.00-$5.00 depending on which one they go to. But, they're both less than 100 feet from the door. He has tables, chairs, and linens. You can BYOB with a tabc bartender, or set up a cash bar and they provide the bartender. He also has turntables, several mics, and other fun toys to play with. The prices are reasonable for what you're getting, and Eric can work out a payment plan with you. Eric and the other people there were all really sweet. His right hand man Rico even went to the trouble to run across the street where we parked to warn us not to park there because it was reserved for the lot owner and we'd get towed. And then we stood and had a chat with him for about 10 minutes. Everyone there is so warm, friendly, and welcoming. Lots of smiles. ^_^ I'm telling you, if you visit in person, you will be as stuck on it as we are. My fiance's mom was with us and spent the rest of the night googling for dresses and different doo dads to match the decor. lol I'm all jazzed up and excited now, lol. It was the first real serious wedding planing thing we've done. We've just gotta figure out a date now so we can book it! =D


Extremely unique place!, An Eventective User from Dallas

This place is unlike any other in Dallas! Eric is extremely helpful and accommodating. I had a great time at the Quixotic World. It has a magical atmosphere, and the ambiance and aesthetics are wonderfully different. Great place for a variety of events!


Wedding Venue, An Eventective User from Dallas, Texas

I recently had my wedding reception here in May. We chose them because of the options they had. For the amount we paid, we got a great deal. Tables, chairs and linens were included in the price tag. You can either have a caterer of your own choice or you can bring you're own food. It's either also BYOB or you can hire one of the bar-tending services they have available. This was a plus because we were able to save money (not many reception venues allow this). During the reception, the hosts were superb. I did not expect as much help as we got during set up and clean up. Throughout the entire evening, they would help clear the tables (such as empty plates or cups) and were extremely friendly to our guests. When 1 AM rolled around, there was not much clean-up needed except for gifts and cake. I really appreciated how much easier the owners/hosts made the night for us.


Mix & Mingle, An Eventective User from Dallas, Texas

Thank u so much! My guest was really surprised as they step into the venue. They enjoyed every second of the minute every minute of the hour. EXCELLENT!!! location *****(5star)owner was very PROFESSIONAL!!! will I use this location again yes! yes! yes!
