Dryades Ballroom is the city’s premier venue for events. Featuring 4,000 square feet of historically significant event space, Dryades offers an impressive backdrop for any meeting or special event. The industrially-elegant ballroom features floor-to-ceiling arched windows and a soaring 30-foot ceiling, epitomizing the original architecture of its iconic building. Meticulous renovations have retained the room’s 24-foot high crane and tracks, which formerly transported transformers to storage vaults for repair.
