A Great Place to have a Party or a Dance

The Lesbian community of Gulfport has been having dances here for the past 15 years. Our town of Gulfport is openly friendly to the LGBT community.

Like many things in Gulfport, Florida, this place is not always what it seems. Basically, it is called a Casino but is not a Casino in that this not a gambling establishment, It is a pretty cool venue, though, on the waterfront featuring various activities from ballroom dancing to trade shows and conventions. Fine arts fairs and the wellness fair... More

...I can't imagine a better deal for $8 than the two hours of lessons (great teachers) topped by the opportunity to really dance with the partners you just practiced with...and then a stoll outside and down the beach with your favorite!

I have attended several events at this location for a multitude of reasons throughout the years and never ever have been disappointed... from formal dances, weddings, health fairs, art events, Halloween parties, volunteer appreciation parties, etc. The building has a special art deco quality that can be easily transformed into the theme of whatever special event it hosts. The bartenders... More

Wonderful show, hear they also have great dances but don't expect a casino! This building was converted long ago to serve many different purposes. Close to many shops, restaurants, the pier, and beach.

After a wonderful dinner at the "La Côte Basque Wine Warehouse" restaurant our group of 15 continued on to the Casino for the end of the year party. A great success! Very nicely decorated, a nice band and very good DJ for dancing, the geko dropped at midnight. Music, balloon hats, party hats, hot hors d'oeuvres and champagne... a wonderful... More

My son & his fiance got married here last weekend. They had both the ceremony & reception inside & there was plenty of room for both. it is easy to decorate & John (the coordinator) was a great help. The bartenders were amazing & the drinks reasonably priced.

$7.00 admission for a Sunday night - this included 2 hours of dance instruction which was quite informative. Drinks are reasonable, clean restrooms and there are even drawings for door prizes. Spacious facility!

The Gulfport Historic Casino and Ballroom is a dream space for a wedding reception. My partner and I had our marriage ceremony, dinner, and awesome dance-party reception all together at this venue, and there could have been no more perfect space in the Tampa Bay Area to make it all happen. Jon and his staff there are a dream to... More
