Ballroom dancing was, perhaps, nearing its peak when Elks Temple construction was completed in 1916. Later, as other forms of entertainment like radio and TV captured Americans’ attention, the popularity of ballroom dancing diminished, but the Elks’ enthusiasm did not. They continued to host Vaudevillian shows, fundraisers, father-daughter dances, and parties in the ballroom until 1965 when the organization moved to a new location.

We’ve revived this grand venue – 21st century style! A Bose sound system with predictive software uses wave guides to focus sound, creating top-notch quality tailored to the space. Mixing history with modernity, two-story murals inspired by Wagner’s Ring cycle opera grace the walls, and with a capacity of 700, live music dominates. Our nightly line-up is fantastically diverse.
