Welcome to a world of classic elegance unlike any other. The Grand Roosevelt Ballroom located on the revitalized Yonkers waterfront, has hosted presidents. politicians and royalty. Theodore and Franklin D Roosevelt, appeared at events here during visits to Yonkers and Westchester, which inspired the ornately carved ornaments and its echoing two-story space. Renamed the Roosevelt Ballroom, in honor of the presidential family, the facility boasted performernances from leading actors (and actresses) of the day such as Clara Bow and Helen Hayes. The stage of the Grand Roosevelt Ballroom has also been home to many famous musicians and orchestras. The facility has just undergone a $2 million makeover and restoration. Now the Grand Roosevelt Ballroom is one of the largest event and catering facilities in Westchester. Equally convenient to Manhattan or Connecticut and boasting a staff of Cordon Bleu chefs The Grand Roosevelt Ballroom is the ideal location for any event. The Grand Roosevelt Ballroom is an architectural landmark building located in Yonkers, New York. The grand, Beaux-Arts style structure was designed by G. Howard Chamberlain and built in 1904. For years, the enormous grand ballroom within, with its 30-foot ceilings and extensive gold leaf decor, was a fixture of the social scene in Yonkers, playing host to all manner of meetings, parties and theatrical productions.

STAY AWAY FROM THIS VENUE. See my review on yelp for more details. They are some of the most unresponsive, unprofessional,sneaky people I have EVER met. They will say one thing and turn around and say they never said that. T. From the day I signed my contract and paid my deposit with Abaid he VANISHED!!! I sent him on minimum 20 emails and 40 text messages/phone calls the ten months leading up tot he day of the event, he replied to one email and only replied to my text messages to confirm that he received my payments and would be cashing. They tried their hardest even the day before the event to charge me for everything they possibly could (even things that were in the contract)For example, in my contract it indicated that I would get table cloths and chair covers of my choosing. I chose white for both, they gave me white table cloths and off-white chair covers! It looked hideous! The LED lighting that I was supposed to get..never happened! The lighting was horrible! It looked like a gymnasium in there! So far all my pictures look horrible, I am hoping the professional ones look better. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, I even have these con people on video stating things that they would "throw" in my package...which they never did. The night of the event they had no event planner, and none of the owners were there as they said they would be ensuring that everything went smoothly. The vents came on in the middle of the reception and was LOUD. So embarrassing. The table cloth on the cake table was FILTHY, I mean filthy! My wedding planner tried her best to hide the dirt with flower petals. The only thing I can say is the wait staff at this place are very sweet, I feel bad they have to work for such dishonest people.
