The Fine Print

Isn’t there always? Hollywood Ballroom is available to rent only on Saturday evenings (social events) and during weekdays for professional meetings. Because of prior contractual agreements, Fridays and Sundays are not available for private events, as public dances are held then. Weekday evenings are reserved for dance instruction.
