The Architecture Happy Hour was founded in 2010 and is organized by Dallas Architects and Interior Designers, Laura Davis and Holly Hall of hpd architecture + interiors.
The monthly networking event has a robust membership of professionals such as architects, interior designers, lighting and landscape designers, realtors, engineers, contractors, property investors, furniture manufacturer reps, interior and exterior finishes vendors, and other design and construction professionals.
This group is focused on building relationships among design and construction professionals, generating quality referrals, and doing business with people we know and trust.
If you are enthusiastic, resourceful and have a giving attitude you are poised for success, you probably just need some assistance in expanding your current network. We are here to help, and help each other.
Bring a friend, an idea of who you would like to be connected with, and lots of business cards. Membership in this Meetup group is FREE.

What People Are Saying!
I want to say thank you for the work that you have put into the Architecture Happy Hour (and the Podcast.) I have made numerous valuable connections through your events, most with people I would have never thought to align myself with strategically. I also have enjoyed the podcast, as I had no idea what the business model looked like for architects. Learning how your business operates has made it so much easier to interact with the architects I have had the pleasure of working with.

This is consistently a great group of folks with a diverse set of professions and skills. I have met many highly creative people that have inspired new creative directions of my own. What a positive association it’s been! ”

This was my very first meeting with this group. A well respected remodeler/member thought enough to recommend your group to me recently. I am so thankful he did! I have gone to many construction industry networking functions spanning over 1-1/2 decades and I must say that this group has some of the most friendliest and approachable members by far. Everyone I talked to seemed genuinely intent in learning about me and my business and actively look for ways we could mutually benefit to further our endeavors… often leading to other meaningful introductions. This is what networking should be like! The beautiful showroom was well lit, warm and inviting. The perfect place to mingle. I look forward to connecting again with several fine members and will be looking forward to the next afterhours!
