Everyone assumes that the building is a casino for gamble, unfortunately it is not. The Casino is located on the beach blocking a beautiful view onto the bay when driving down the Boulevard. It is an 1950' building many locals seem to find charming. Not much thought has been given to this architectural "jewel of pride" as the outside appears... More

We recently visited this great venue for a wedding. It's a beautiful place for a wedding reception. It's right on the water with great views of the area. Very large and it looks as though it has been recently renovated. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone looking to host either a wedding or party here.

The Casino is located right on the beach in the heart of Gulfport. It's a beautiful building with charm & lots of history. It is a wonderful spot for an event such as a wedding or large party with a stage, restrooms, large bar, & great views of Boca Ciega Bay. The city holds important community meetings there as well...

Beautifully restored 1920's ballroom with authentic wood dancefloor, band shell and fully stocked bar. This place is lovely and has waterviews on three sides, you are literally suspended over Boca Ciega Bay

The Casino, as we call it, is a wonderful dance hall (one of the largest in the U.S.) with dance events almost every day! It also is available for rental for major events like wedding receptions or charity and company events.There are dance lessons and public ballroom dances most days of the week. Its most charming aspect is its views... More

Love the Geeko Festival! It brings families together and the vendors are always different every year. The bands are always new and entertaining. The Casino offered a variety of dances to learn how to do.

I do not recommend their Christmas Dance. Cost was high and the band was terrible, with 5 minutes between songsl they were disorganized! Also, the entertainment was messed up because the person in charge of music couldn't get it right. Otherwise, we REALLY do like the place for dancing. Lots of room. Good dance floor. You can bring food in... More

Attended the art fair here last weekend and it was a great venue. On street parking and the set up inside was very good. A varied group of artists left us with something for everyone.

What an awesome evening...I attended Swing Time's 12th Anniversary with two of my friends and we literally had a blast. The best thing was that everyone dances with each other so it didn't matter that I didn't have a partner. Dance instructions were given to all of us as a group before the official dancing started. The live band "Eight... More
