With picturesque views from windows on three sides, including 30' tall windows and blond hardwood floors, this 9,000 sq. feet of open, flexible space provides the perfect setting for your next event. The ballroom can be divided into two sections for more intimate events or for breakouts. West Pauley is two-thirds of the ballroom, and East Pauley is one-third of the ballroom.
