An Iconic Building Overlooking Avalon Bay
The Catalina Casino has been the focal point of Catalina Island's entertainment and glamour since 1929. Dominating the Avalon landscape from its regal site anchoring the harbor, the Casino exemplifies elegance and prestige. Restored to its original condition, the circular art deco icon is a stunning reminder of Avalon's glorious past and continues to set the bar for one-of-a-kind meetings and events.
Casino Ballroom - Avalon's Entertainment Center
The Casino Ballroom has 50-foot ceilings with five Tiffany chandeliers, an elevated stage, raised seating areas surrounding the wooden dance floor, and vintage full-service bar. A sweeping veranda surrounds the ballroom with a stunning 360-degree view of Avalon Bay. This site can accommodate any sizeable meeting, dinner or corporate retreat.

Avalon Theatre - An Enchanting Venue
Located on the lower level of the Catalina Casino, the Avalon Theatre can seat 1,184 people. The theatre is 138 feet across and 43 feet high. Art Deco murals by John Gabriel Beckman adorn the walls and create a glamorous ambiance. This theatre is well insulated so full concerts and events from the Ballroom cannot be heard, yet the acoustics are so good that a speaker on the stage can speak in a normal voice without microphone and be heard clearly. This site is ideal for large lectures and conferences. It has just undergone a complete sound system upgrade with Dolby surround sound.

Casino Marine Bar & Mezzanine - Unique & Grand Spaces
The Marine Bar was created on the mezzanine level to welcome the big band dancers and overflow customers from the main bar on the ballroom floor. Now it is an ideal location for small meetings or events requiring a more intimate setting yet still benefiting from the Casino Building's grand size and scope. The mezzanine floor also includes the most unique rooms in the building: the Wrigley Room and the Champagne Room.
