If next June marks a milestone number of years since you graduated from high school, now is the time to start planning a spectacular reunion. It takes more time than you’d think to contact everyone and make all the arrangements. Plus, getting together with old friends to plan everything is half the fun. The first thing you’ve got to do is pick a date and find a venue. Happily for you, we’ve got four great locations, and one of them is going to be perfect for you.
A Spectacular Reunion for a Big Crowd
The Brandview Ballroom in downtown Glendale is the area’s premier event venue. Offering a sweeping 13,000 square feet of style and sophistication, it can more than comfortably host up to 550 guests. Located in the historic Art Deco-inspired Huntley-Evans building built in 1921, the ballroom has been completely renovated for modern convenience yet retains elegant stylistic details reminiscent of a bygone era.
Guests will enter via a dramatic spiral staircase enhanced with gold-leafed railings and set off by a two-story crystal chandelier, giving each of your classmates the chance to make a grand entrance. The ballroom itself is graced with Italian onyx chandeliers, tufted walls, and floor-to-ceiling windows.
The space is completely customizable with seating and dance floor arrangements to match your plans. There’s even room enough for your school’s whole pep squad to lead the crowd in a nostalgic cheer. In addition to the Brandview’s stunning bar, you can designate part of the ballroom as a comfortable cocktail lounge. Adjacent is the outdoor Brandview Patio, which you may include as an intimate spot for cocktails, conversation, and hookah, too, if you’d like.
A Trip Back in Time for the Whole Class
The Le Foyer Ballroom in North Hollywood is today’s answer to the luxury of old Hollywood. With 5,500 square feet of exquisite architectural detail, it can accommodate up to 550 guests who will enter through a foyer of imported Italian marble that features a breathtaking 25-foot fountain.
The ballroom’s sixteen arches are highlighted by a dazzling chandelier, and the room can be arranged in any of a number of ways to create the setting that suits you. Once dinner has been served, our lighting options can instantly transform your reunion into a lively, nightclub-inspired dance fest for showing you’ve all still got the moves. Guests who would like some fresh air can stroll out onto the patio and enjoy a hookah bar while sipping cocktails.
An Elegant Evening for Everyone
The Glenoaks Ballroom in Glendale is extravagantly appointed with classic architecture, handcrafted woodwork, high ceilings, imported marble, mirrored walls, and a 60-foot crystal chandelier that will take your reunion to the next level of elegance. With 4,500 square feet to accommodate up to 450 people, this sophisticated ballroom imparts the allure of yesteryear from the moment your classmates step into the red-carpeted entry.
The Glenoaks’ open floor plan allows for your choice of seating options on both sides of the gleaming white dance floor, and special presentations can be made in front of a crystal-encrusted backdrop. The ballroom also offers a generous stage for the program and musical entertainment.
All of our ballrooms are complete with capacious dance floors, full audiovisual capabilities, Wi-Fi, and state-of-the-art lighting that can be tailored to suit the mood as your reunion progresses from cocktails, through dinner, and on to dancing. Each of the locations also offers convenient valet parking.
Anoush catering is another reason to choose one of these impressive venues. Our master chefs delight in creating delectable fare, using only the finest and freshest ingredients. Vegetarian and vegan requests are handled with ease. Skilled staff will pamper everyone, whether you choose a buffet, bountiful family style dining, or fine plated service. Anoush bartenders will add special flair with signature cocktails. And whichever venue you select, you’ll have at your disposal a talented and thoughtful L.A. Banquets event planner to work with you and make sure your reunion is everything you want it to be.
This is the ideal time to book your 2016 high school reunion to assure the date of your choice. If your class was small, or you don’t expect a crush of people, we also have spaces in Glendale and North Hollywood that are ideal for 100 or fewer guests and offer the same exceptional style and service.
