Inspired by the art-deco theme of the 1925 F. Scott Fitzgerald novel, Great Gatsby, the light and airy first-floor Gatsby Ballroom, which has its own private terrace, can hold up to 300 people.

While the inspiration for it’s décor and name may have gleaned from the 1920s, it’s not a themed space, which gives you the option to decorate and present it exactly how you would like.
