The Phoenix Ballroom is Waco's premier entertainment venue. Originally owned by the Crawford Austin Manufacturing Co., the building was used for the manufacturing of tents and tarps during both world wars. Until April of 2007, the building had been left unused and in disrepair. After months of hard work and dedication, the Phoenix Ballroom now truly shines with over 10,000 square feet of breathtaking original hardwood floors, elegant chandeliers, and a magnificent fireplace. The Phoenix is the ideal setting for weddings, receptions, parties, quinceneras, proms, and corporate events. The Phoenix can easily accommodate 450 guests at banquet style seating, and is perfect for any event, big or small. The Phoenix also offers a choice of several different sizes tables and chairs, which are included in the rental and are set up and taken down to your specifications. Also, you won't have to worry about parking for your guests as the Phoenix offers over 183 individual parking slots.
