Owner description: Few words can describe the ambiance of the Catalina Casino: it epitomizes everything glamorous and romantic about Catalina Island. The one-of-a-kind venue is simply stunning inside, outside, and all around. If the meticulously decorated walls could talk, they’d tell countless stories of romance and celebration gathered from decades of memorable events. The immense, Deco-themed ballroom is large enough to contain weddings, large meetings or lectures or musical events. The Casino has retained its signature lavish style: a stunning medley of rose-hued walls, an arching, 50-foot ceiling with five Tiffany chandeliers, an elevated stage, raised seating areas surrounding the wooden dance floor, and a vintage full-service bar anchoring the back. A sweeping veranda surrounds the ballroom with stunning 360-degree views of Avalon Bay.

“A must see for $25”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

You have a 90 min. guided walking tour behind the stage and into the viewing room and dressing rooms. Then you go up ramps to the most beautiful round (largest in the world) dance floor. You can rent this for a reasonable fee, if you have 100 friends. Definitely worth the money.

“Visited for New Years Eve Ball”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

Liked the venue but the food was only fair and the waiter was rude. The event is quite pricey. Nice one time event but not something I would repeat.

This place is in the casino also...on the upper level. Pretty nice interesting things told by the guide. I would recommend to take Behind the Scens of casino tour. It will cover all casino there.

“Boring”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

This "Casino" is an old casino building with nothing to see. Find a picture and look at it, you will be happier that you did not waste your time travelling to see this sight.
