Elegance. Glamour. Charm.



Thank you for visiting the website for the Palais Royale ballroom. Located at 105 West Colfax Avenue in the heart of downtown South Bend and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Palais Royale Ballroom is one of the most beloved landmarks in the city. The historic Palais Royale is part of the Morris Center, which also includes the Morris/Leighton theatre, and is South Bend's premier event and banquet facility.

Prior to a two-year, $6.9 million renovation and restoration of the facility, the Palais Royale was the place to dance the night away and listen to the legendary sounds of big bands for more than 40 years. In it’s heyday, the ballroom hosted names such as Cab Calloway, Tommy Dorsey, Guy Lombardo and Glenn Miller.

Today, after being returned to its 1920s grandeur, the Palais Royale is now the preferred venue in the area for wedding receptions, corporate events, trade shows, fund-raising events, proms, reunions, holiday parties and more!

We hope you enjoy your experience and we look forward to seeing you in the grand ballroom for your next event here at the Palais Royale!
