Corinthian Grand Ballroom
The Corinthian Grand Ballroom is the Event Center’s main ballroom, and it has the elements of a true ballroom. You enter through a foyer, regally outfitted with a crystal chandelier and hand-painted wood-beam ceiling. Once inside the Corinthian Grand Ballroom, you’re struck by its grand proportions and majestic features. The 60-foot ceiling has massive wood beams, and is inset with alternating panes of blue glass and intricately detailed panels of gold leaf grillwork. Six extraordinary wrought-iron-and-glass lanterns hang from the ceiling like giant luminous earrings, while five 30-foot palm trees embedded with twinkle lights add sparkle. At one end of the room is a stage with a carved stone proscenium and framing red velvet curtains; at the other end is a carved granite balcony, where just-married couples often dance their first dance. Banquettes along the sides of the room make cozy seating areas, and there is a raised section that’s ideal for the head table. The hard wood dance floor is permanently ensconced in front of the stage.
Smaller functions take place in the Gold and Silver Rooms while the Bronze Room is used for storage for the guests functional set-up equipment (I.E. DJ equipment, table top decorations, etc). Many guests have used to separate rooms as a place for the children of the reception to hang out separately under supervision. All have crystal chandeliers, cream walls, red carpets and ceiling baffled sound. You can reserve these rooms individually, or combine them to make one long room – the perfect space for a wedding ceremony. And all three rooms have access to the Phoenix Lounge, a more casual space with faux-candle chandeliers and a mix of antiques and contemporary furnishings.
Olympia & Decathlon Rooms
The Olympia and Decathlon Rooms are usually used together. We have housed many events in these historic set rooms. When it comes to a small business meeting or having a place for a business to have a medium sized event, these rooms have an old-era setting that keep our San Jose business clients coming back for more. What more is nice about these rooms? Well they are great to use as changing rooms for the bride because they are on the third floor and away from the Grand Ballroom. This way the groom will not be able to see his bride to be with out trying to be sneaky. Please review the floor plans below so you can see how many square feet each room is and how many people they can seat.
