Main Hall – Sala Grande

The ambience of the large main hall is reminiscent of an era long gone by with its extra-high ceilings, chandeliers, wall sconces, tall curtained windows on the east and west walls, a stage, a balcony area, an elegant hardwood dance floor and a bar. With the addition of personal decorating touches the transformation into a venue specific for your event is then complete. A panoramic view of the downtown Vancouver landscape from the windows located on the west wall enhances the atmosphere of the occasion.
