The History

Of San Remo Ballroom

The iconic San Remo Ballroom has been an integral part of the social fabric of inner city Melbourne for almost 50 years, with the premises on Nicholson Street in Carlton North being steeped in over 140 years of historical significance in the city. The central Carlton location has been a prime service and entertainment location in the city since its inception in 1870. It has served a variety of functions since then, including a cycling school at the beginning of the 20th century, a roller skating ring, a furniture store and enjoyed a 20-year stint as the beautiful Adelphi Theatre.

In its lifetime, our grand building has mostly been used for social gatherings of fun and entertainment, and when San Remo Ballroom redeveloped the space in 1963, we made sure to keep that tradition and heritage alive. Having now occupied the building for almost half a century, San Remo Ballroom has built and maintained a stellar reputation amongst the finest entertainment and event hosting establishments in Melbourne and throughout Victoria.

2020 was a challenging year for SRB, when a fire ripped through and damaged our beloved venue in February, and then the lights dimmed on all events throughout Victoria as the Covid19 pandemic hit the state in March. Although devastating at the time, we chose to find the silver lining and took the opportunity to reimagine, redesign, update and elevate our decor and overall offering throughout our rebuild. It was a true testament to the sheer grit and dedication of the San Remo Ballroom team, as it took over a year to rebuild and literally rise again from the ashes; and in May 2021, the doors reopened and we relaunched – brighter, bolder and more beautiful than before!

We are proud to be the venue that hosts your most treasured memorable moments, and the backdrop for your events and celebrations. Over our 50 years, San Remo Ballroom has become intertwined in so many Melbourne family’s stories and histories – becoming almost another family member, as you return time and time again to celebrate more milestones and life achievements. 

Let us be a part of your story too, and book your next event with us.
