This storied venue returns after a state of the art renovation. Tremendous care was taken to preserve iconic features such as the art deco ceiling, gold & red scalloped balconies and exposed brick while modernizing it to meet entertainment standards and enhance (ahem….AC!) the overall guest experience. Your guests will enter the lobby, and then quickly find themselves in a glamorous bar/lounge and then it’s on to the spectacular ballroom with it’s wraparound balcony for the main event! Painstaking restoration, amazing flow, stellar acoustics – you won’t be disappointed (or over heated)!
