Music Hall Ballroom
One of the most versatile spaces in Cincinnati, the Music Hall Ballroom is the second largest meeting space in the city, encompassing over 20,000 square feet. It is frequently used for large receptions, exhibitions, fashion shows, class reunions and breakfast, lunch and dinner gatherings. It can also be used for stage performances and lectures. In October 1998, a $1.8 million renovation of the Ballroom was completed. The Ballroom can accommodate up to 1,300 based on your event requirements. The room is also equipped with state-of-the-art sound and lighting equipment. The large bar area makes the Ballroom a perfect place for parties, according to the groups who come back year after year for annual functions.
