About Us

A Labor of Love

On The Levee was founded by lifelong friends and Dallas natives Michael Cohen, John Martin and Jamie Martin. Friends since the third grade, John and Michael attended Jackson Elementary school together and both graduated from Plano Senior High School. As both moved on and built their own businesses, they have always maintained a desire to one day focus their efforts and create a place of congregation for their families, their friends and their neighbors. On the Levee represents the nexus of John, Jamie and Michael’s personal and professional pursuits – a true labor of love


A Design District Space

On The Levee is a flexible event and wedding venue located close to downtown Dallas and designed to blend the area’s industrial roots with the neighborhood’s evolving commitment to modern elegance and style – all while being situated directly next to the Trinity River Levee.

With 22 foot ceilings, two spacious lounges of over 600 square feet, an open vendor policy, on-site parking and a large catering kitchen – On The Levee can be shaped to your needs and imagination.
