You don’t gotta know when to hold em’ or fold em’
The “Casino” Ballroom is not a Casino. It’s true. The only thing you can bet on here is that you’ll have one hell of a good time. The venue is called the “Casino” Ballroom because in 1899, the year the building was named, the word “Casino” meant “gathering place for music” in Italian.
Why don’t we change it? It’s authentic! Now that legends like Zeppelin, The Doors and U2 have played here we could never justify a name change. So now you are in the know.
