Stanly Hall Ballroom has many features that set it apart from other event venues in the area. Sparkling, crystal chandeliers and sconces, tall arched windows, and a soaring ceiling with dramatic, exposed, support trusses set the stage for any special event. The 3,600 sq. ft. heart pine floor is perfect for dancing the night away. A unique, hand crafted staircase leads to a balcony and furnished bridal suite with its own private bathroom. The original exposed brick and mortar construction of the hallway contrasts nicely with the “ballroom blue” and warm ivory of the spacious main room. Our caterer’s kitchen has accommodated sumptuous buffets as well as elegant plated meals. At full capacity of 199, your friends and family will be seated at large round tables on comfortable banquet chairs and still have room to dance. Stanly Hall Ballroom is located in historic downtown New Bern, NC on the top floor of the Stanly Hall Building (constructed in 1874 and a certified historic structure) and boasts a colorful history of its own.
