For over 75 years Roseland has brought people together to sing, dance and celebrate. From film premieres to boxing matches, award shows to black-tie galas, the place to meet is 52nd street!
The Roseland Ballroom is a catering hall/music venue/dance hall in a converted ice skating rink with a colorful ballroom dancing pedigree in New York City's theatre district on West 52nd Street. The venue can accommodate 3,200 standing (with an additional 300 upstairs), 2,500 for a dance party, between 1,500 and 1,800 in theatre style and 800-1,000 for a sit-down dinner.
The quirky venue has hosted everything from a Hillary Clinton birthday party to annual gay circuit parties to movie premieres to musical performances from all genres including Madonna (musician), Paul McCartney and the Rolling Stones.
The rear of the venue faces West 53rd Street and the Ed Sullivan Theater. It is seen virtually every time that comedian David Letterman has outside antics during taping of the Late Show with David Letterman beside his theater (prompting various attempts to paint the industrial looking wall to make it look better on national television).
