Georgetown Ballroom celebrates 100 years with open house

Anniversary open house will be from 4-8 p.m. this Saturday, 5625 Airport Way S.



For any Georgetown resident who walks or drives by the Georgetown Ballroom on Airport Way S and wonders what it looks like inside, here is your chance to check it out.


To celebrate its 100th anniversary, the Georgetown Ballroom, 5625 Airport Way S, is hosting an open house from 4-8 p.m. this Saturday, April 13, and welcoming the community. The venue usually hosts private parties and weddings, but on Saturday, ballroom management is throwing open the doors for everyone. While Magnolia Rhapsody DJs spin tunes from the stage, staff will serve paella and drinks from the bar. They will also share information about the building’s history, which was built in 1924 and was first home to a movie theater and auto repair garage.


Visitors can also see some of the artifacts found inside or in the interior courtyard, including pinball machines that can be added to your event, a 1946 jukebox, a staircase reclaimed from a mansion, a 1930s phone booth, a 1948 sports trailer, signs from a long-gone Seattle roadhouse, an antique Chinese lion head, the green bench from the movie Singles, the Chinatown sign from the original Chinatown Market and even a velvet painting of the Starship Enterprise.


“Given the business we are in, we don’t often get a chance to welcome our neighbors. If anyone is curious about the ballroom, here is a chance to come by, grab a bite, and say hello,” said Danielle Crowson, Georgetown Ballroom’s Director of Operations.
