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, handcrafted 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. You can view all our amenities here.
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.
I held my husband’s surprise 50th birthday party at this venue shortly after Hurricane Florence. The owners could not have been more helpful. I emailed them all the arrangements and plans and everything was more beautiful and perfect than I ever imagined. There is no way I could have pulled off this surprise if they did not relieve me of all the tasks. Beyond helpful! Truly wonderful!
Beautiful venue for weddings – so pretty with the chandeliers and the dance floor. One of the best venues downtown. – Jean Lloyd
