The Village Ballroom is a classical ballroom located in the historic Woodlawn neighborhood of Portland, OR. Its long history and community feel are apparent the moment you walk in.
A simple entry hallway steps you into a charming entry room with classical couches and chairs. The entry room makes a great staging area for greeting guests, relaxing for a few moments, or casually chatting during receptions. Through wide dark stained double doors you enter the spacious ballroom.
The ballroom’s newly refinished original hardwood floors echo with the sounds of time, dances, and ceremonies gone by. With many large windows, red velvet curtains, and dark wood trim you’ll appreciate the beauty of daytime lighting and nighttime charm. A small platform stage up front and house sound system provide the perfect simple venue for a DJ, band, or ceremony. Framed by 4 large windows this simple stage offers excellent daytime lighting and a treetop view of the neighborhood and mountains.
To the back of the ballroom and side of the entry room you’ll find our buffet room complete with bar options. This space is setup to give easy access to the bar for your reception or dance event in the main ballroom. Banquet tables are also available for placement of other food or beverage items as well. If your event is smaller and mostly contained in the ballroom then this space makes an excellent storage and staging space as well.
Downstairs you’ll find a spacious mirrored studio and kitchen area. The studio’s bamboo floors and mirrored walls make an ideal second dance space, small reception area, or large staging area for food, brides, musicians, and more.
Throughout the building you’ll find the classic simple charm held over from the 1909 construction of the building. Echoing throughout is the long history of many visitors and joyous experiences from a century of use as a community, wedding, dance, and party space!
Options are available for catering, rental, and coordination assistance. Host and no-host bar options available as well.
Come enjoy the beauty of a century old ballroom located close-in to the city and excellent nearby parks and other services! Call or e-mail for a viewing appointment today.
