Enjoyed Ballroom Dancing starting with a complimentary lesson with Paul and Carol in a large vintage building overlooking the water. Large wood floor with friendly people. Enjoyed it so much that went back the next night for a complimentary, but lightly attended latin lesson with Carol Rivera. Being able to dance while on vacation - a plus.

The place it's really nice and comfortable for weddings and events. Bathroom is specious and it has a walk around porch. Night life is all around. I was lucky to get a close parking place.

We've explored the hidden treasures of Gulfport and come to enjoy it immensely. From the Gulfport Casino Ballroom, located right by the waterfront, is one of the main event venues in the city. It took us a while to realise I wasn't a Vegas style Casino!!! The Casino hosts Swing, Latin, Argentine Tango, and Ballroom Dance events five days a... More

If you are a salsa or swing dancer, do NOT miss the opportunity for a fun evening of dancing in this beautiful and very historic Casino ballroom. Classes precede the open dancing. The neighborhood is trendy with plenty of good restaurants and interesting bars. The galleries are fun to browse.This is a must-see in the Tampa area.

The historic Casino Ballroom is such a wonderful venue in Gulfport. There is dancing all week long. There is ballroom, swing, latin and probably "other" dancing as well. The dance floor is large and the building is comfortable. We'd been told to visit the Ballroom on a previous visit to the gulf beaches and this time we did. We went... More

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.
