The beautiful Grand Ballroom featured music and starlets at its infamous grand opening more than 75 years ago. In July of 1937 more than 1000 guests celebrated that special evening debut of this seaside entertainment venue. Big bands played and were radio broadcast far and wide while dancers enjoyed the floating dance floor, patio dining and ocean breezes.
The highly domed ceilings of the ballroom, dance floor and central stage make a perfect setting for your wedding reception, private party or fundraiser event, easily accommodating up to 300 guests. The adjoining buffet area and lounge can service guests before and during your event. Vintage velvet curtains can seclude the dining/entertainment venue as your guests arrive for that perfect surprise. Lighting and décor can transform the Grand Ballroom from the most casual and festive venue to an intimate, candlelit celebration.
The Casino's History Hall offers a warm and comfortable area adjacent to the historic Grand Ballroom for your guests. This is the only locale on the property where the original 1937 wood flooring could be saved, offering a unique memory of dancing and dining at the Casino.
History Hall is the natural walkway for your guests to the Rock Garden for wedding ceremonies, cocktail hour, etc. before the debut of the opening of the Grand Ballroom. For fundraisers, the Hall can be transformed to a silent auction display area or additional cocktail and seating as required.
We've planned some beautiful events at The Casino in San Clemente and we LOVE this venue! Here are some highlights from two weddings and a baby shower:
Corey and Lindseys wedding was relaxed, understated and elegant in a color palette of silver, pink, rose and green. The elegant tone for their wedding at Mariners Chapel was set with lovely invitations by BG Design Studio. Bloom Box Designs created such beautiful bouquets and arrangements of roses, peonies, tulips and hydrangea. The decor was sophisticated and featured mirrored tables, candles in glass and silver votives and tufted leather sofas.
