Events at the Howard

Originally designed in 1927 by architect Henry Auler, the Old English/Tudor Revival-style building totals 33,000 square feet and three floors. The interior boasts 25-foot-high vaulted ceilings alongside original stained glass accents and handcarved crown moldings. Many fixtures and floorplans remain intact as well. The venue’s iconic, 7,000-square-foot concert hall and ballroom spans two floors. The grandiose entertainment hub is outfitted with ornate whitewashed ceilings detailed with elaborate brass filigree works that support optimal acoustics.

Beyond an imperial staircase illuminated beneath crystal chandeliers, the 1,800-square-foot private dining room also shows off high vaulted ceilings accented with original wood beams. In the basement, the vintage, 10-lane bowling alley is fully restored with modern technology and décor. Plush, velvet sofas are installed along with a full bar and private viewing room. In addition to the onsite café, a 10-seat tea room in the adjacent foyer provides an alternative retreat.
