Banquets, Proms, Class Reunions, Graduations, Dances, Awards Ceremonies, Dances - no matter the time of day or the type of event, the Palais Royale ballroom is the ideal space for your event!

Entry into the Palais Royale via the grand concourse; the 30-foot high, ornamental ceiling and chandelier of the Ballroom and velvet-draped, palatial windows make a stunning impression.
The handsome stage, the elegant, solid oak floor, and the third floor balcony are striking and lend themselves beautifully to a variety of uses.

Your exquisite menu selections are prepared on-site!

The space is suitable for groups up to 800 (depending upon seating requirements).
You will receive our undivided attention, as your event is the only event in the Palais at that time.
Restrooms are spacious and well-kept. Two rooms adjacent to the ballroom (400 SF) provide useful space. All areas are easily accessible via elevator.
Convenient location in the heart of downtown South Bend, close proximity to hotels and parking for your guests.
