Yes .... There was a Lake.

Mr. Robbins made a man-made lake & put an

8 sided cabin on it with a board walk. This was in the beginning of 1920's. He started building the Ballroom in 1929 & opened

November 11, 1931.

Herbie Kay out of Chicago was the Orchestra. His female vocalist was Dorothy Lamour.

She was 17 years old.

RESERVATIONS
We do take reservations
On  regular dances you may call in or let us know. We do not guarantee a certain table but will try to get you close to the area you like.
We have employees taking reservations all the time & sometimes the table may already be spoken for & we're not aware of it.
Reservations are 1st come 1st serve bases.
Some of our regular dancers have favorite tables
& have let the waitresses know they are coming.
They usually get the same table all the time.
On Special Events
(Some events we do NOT take reservations)
There are no regular tables. If you want a table you need to reserve. We need to know you are coming. It is 1st to reserve gets the table. So if you have a favorite it is best to reserve early. (Weeks ahead).
Some special events are reservations only with advanced tickets.  The day before or day of

will not get you close to the dance floor.

My dancers reserve early to get the best tables.
We are trying hard to be fair with reservations & we have had some big screw ups & we're sorry it happened. Please be patient we are trying to make it better. We have had some big nights, but we have never ran out of room. So please don't let not having a reservation stop you from coming. We will find you a table.

I'm not sure what year this was taken but this is the north side of the Ballroom. It's changed a bit.
