"The Finest Ballroom in the South"

The South's finest ballroom opens its oak dance floor for everything from ballroom dancing to corporate functions. The historic Coliseum was built in 1924, and purchased by the City of St. Petersburg in 1989. The Coliseum has undergone extensive renovations, making it one of the Tampa Bay area's most unique multi-use facilities. The Coliseum is located in downtown St. Petersburg in the local historic district. Over 800 parking spaces are within convenient walking distance, as are many downtown restaurants, shops & hotels. To make your event the very best, the Coliseum offers open catering and beverage service and a friendly, professional and experienced staff.

The architecture and ambiance the Coliseum provides makes the facility flexible and an exciting place to host your next event.
