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.

We enjoyed hearing about all the events held at the ballroom as well as different stars from the 30's and 40's that came here.

It will take a 25 minutes walk from the green pier to the 'casino'. Right behind is small hill, what I heard about is that, there are villas and the independent villas belong to the celebrities like Madonna.

I heard you can have weddings and other events, if planned ahead... Sometime in the 1940's they had a dance event and at one time accommodated 6200 people...Amazing!

Take the shorter guided tour for a quick and amazing trip back in time. When you reach the ballroom, I recommend laying down underneath the center of the dancefloor and look up.

Do not miss the Art Deco style theater and ballroom if you can get a tour. They are building a new historical museum adjacent.

Great tour...a wonderful legacy landmark of the Wrigley family. The behind the scenes tour was the perfect length and the short film shown in the theatre provides history for those who are not aware of how the Wrigley's purchased and shaped the future of Catalina...More

I'm not much on taking tours, but this place was a treat! Must have been a blast back when Wrigley and company entertained the stars! Well worth the time, as a matter of fact I would take this tour again, just to revisit the things...More
