Tailwaters Private Event Venue

If you’ve ever been to Texas’ Fly Shop on Levee Street, you’ve experienced firsthand the unique setting of our fly shop in the Dallas Design District. We offer a welcoming, one of a kind atmosphere that allows every client to get a taste of our travel destinations from around the world.

With our move to Levee Street, and our 5,000 sf showroom floor, we are excited to offer our sales floor as a public and private event space for a variety of festivities and special occasions. Currently, Tailwaters successfully hosts the annual Dallas Safari Club Jamboree, Camp Firewalker CrawFish boil, Borracho Pescador Redfish Tourney Kick off Party, corporate events and incredible private parties that welcome guests into a true experience of the Tailwaters culture!

Our shop accepts reservations ranging from social and business functions of intimate alcoves at our bar to the full floor with a staffed private party manager to assist with every detail. Our guests are an essential component of not only our success as a shop but a growing heritage going on 13 years in the making as a Dallas Institution.

We offer an experienced events team that can help plan, coordinate and execute every detail of your special occasion. Order from our preferred caterer, a Dallas staple, Guthrie’ Catering. Work directly with the founder of GC, Ben Johnson, to customize a menu that fits your needs and budget.
