Entry into the Palais Royale via the grand concourse; the 30-foot high, ornamental ceiling and chandelier of the Ballroom and velvet-draped, palatial windows make a stunning impression.

The handsome stage; the elegant, solid oak floor; and the third floor balcony are also striking and lend themselves beautifully to a variety of uses.

Restrooms are spacious and well-kept.  Two rooms adjacent to the ballroom (400 SF) provide useful space.  All areas are easily accessible via elevator.
