As you walk into the ballroom, you can see that it is set for an event for 96 people.  The ballroom can seat up to 208 guests depending on what other activities you have planned.

We also have centerpiece options as well as backdrop variations.  Be sure to look at the short throw laser projector on the left back wall.  It can be connected to your laptop to show powerpoint presentations, photos, videos and logos on most walls in the building.  Our service bar is on the front left side of the ballroom.  We offer custom cocktails, champagne toasts and more.
