Meyer Ballroom, Aurora

The Paramount Theatre recently unveiled the new, just-renovated Meyer Ballroom in the North Island Center, 8 E. Galena Blvd.

Meyer Ballroom is available for private rentals, weddings, receptions, expos, and more. It serves up to 350 people. From the Paramount website: “The impressive, newly renovated Meyer Ballroom in the North Island Center next to the Hollywood Casino is the largest space of Paramount Events with endless possibilities. With three individual ballrooms that join into one massive space, the Meyer Ballroom is available for ceremonies, cocktails and receptions. The jaw-dropping space includes floor to ceiling windows with panoramic views of the historic Paramount Theatre and beautiful Fox River.”
