I cannot say enough how much I DO NOT recommend this venue! I wouldn't use their services again if they were free. I had my wedding reception at the Balinese ballroom and was incredibly disappointed, not just the day of, but during the entire planning experience. The parking spots they promise are not actually reserved, so half of them were full when guests arrived, the upstairs was hot, and the bar (that I paid a per-head charge for to be unlimited for 4 hours) ran out of clean glasses two hours into the party, so guests could only get beer. I paid A LOT of money for wine and a signature cocktail that couldn't be served because all of the glasses were dirty, and I did not receive any refund for this. The venue promised me wooden chairs and when I arrived at the reception, there were black metal folding chairs instead, which looked very cheap. I asked to have the windows cleaned before the reception because they were foggy and dirty. They told me they were cleaned, but when I showed up they had not been cleaned. Overall, despite spending approximately $35k on the wedding, the reception looked cheap and dirty and there weren't e

Wonderful Venue. 2 story building which woked well for our large reception (over 200 people). Facility recently completely freshened with new paint inside and out. Beautiful bar area downstairs. Adequate parking, even with a convention going on at the nearby Cook Convention Center. Building owner blocked off a couple parking lots he owns adjacent to the building.

Mike and the wait staff at the Balinese Ballroom couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Mike made suggestions which were invaluable and when unexpected problems occurred he was right there to assist us. Not only was the staff wonderful but the food was awesome. Many of our guests commented on the quality of the food. Thank you to everyone at the Balinese Ballroom who helped to make our reception a memorable night

We had a great experience at the Balinese. They were awesome. I had a few problems with the girl (Nicole) I was working with---- but she is no longer there. The new assistant Brittany is amazing and I can't say enough nice things about Dino !!!! That man can run a reception !!! He was right there whenever I asked for something--- and then took care of it right away !!!! He was like my personal assistant. The owner of the Balinese also owns a restaurant. The name of it is Ferraro's . They did my catering. My new son-in-law's only request was Italian Food. We strayed from the usual "Wedding Menu " and had pasta, chicken parm, meatballs, stromboli, caesar salad, and garlic bread. It was awesome. My guests were calling me the next day asking me were did I get the food ??? And could they get it again ?

If I had anything negative to say it would be towards the end of the night the owner came in to --I guess --to check on things -- he was in shorts, t-shirt, tennis shoes and a ball cap -- I really didn't think that was appropriate---and someone even asked me if he was the janitor ?-----but all in all everything was great.

I had my wedding reception here and I truely loved it, it was the most beautiful and least hassel party I have ever heard about. The food was wonderful and everything was set up just the I had told them and I just can't express how greatful I am to all the staff who made it possible. I did not go to club 152 because I left for my honeymoon but my family and friends said they had a great time. I wish I had thought of having my wedding here as well! I just can not relate how stress free this was.

Thanks so much for everything!

We decided on this location because I thought that it really was beautiful, and also it was the perfect size for the number of people we had invited. I love the big windows, and I love the hardwood floors. It was a perfect place for dancing! The owner, Mike, is great, and he has an amazing group of people working for him. We were able to bring in our own caterers, and we were also able to bring in our own wine and hard liquor. There was lots of planning and coordinating, but Mikes team made sure everything happened as it should.

The owner of Balinese, Mike Zupa, also owns several restaurants, so in addition to being able to provide a great venue, he was able to do all the catering, setup, refreshments, etc. Truly a one-stop shop for everything we needed as far as venue, food and drink were concerned. We had an early reception (about 1pm), so a light menu was what we selected (quiche, fruit, cheese, finger sandwiches, and fried catfish). He even through in some pimento cheese sandwiches at the last minute at no extra charge, because we had a number of vegetarians in attendance. The catfish was awesome. All of the food was really good. Our family makes a special dish we serve at all big family gatherings. Mike let us bring our homemade ravioli and gravy. His chefs cooked the ravioli to perfection, and reheated the gravy and served it all just like we do. We couldn't have done better ourselves. And the pricing for everything was very reasonable. Staff was great...very attentive, courteous and professional. Cudos all around.

The Balinese Ballroom went above and beyond for my wedding last weekend! Everything was beautiful and absolutely perfect! My whole planning process was a breeze. Everyone was so helpful and friendly! The food was also delicious. I would definitely recommend this venue for a wedding and/or reception!
