The legendary Alexandria Ballrooms is a historic wedding venue located on the corner of 5th & Spring Street in the heart of the Historic-Core in downtown Los Angeles. Designated a City of Los Angeles Historical Cultural Monument in 1971, it offers three iconic event venues in one spectacular building. It is also known to have welcomed presidents, dignitaries, and vintage Hollywood royalty since 1906. After decades, the ballrooms have been restored and have officially opened their doors once more. The Alexandria ballrooms offer a variety of environments.
The Alexandria has been a historic staple in the heart of downtown Los Angeles since 1906. The ballrooms hosted a myriad of luxury events for Hollywood stars, presidents, and other social royalties. These spaces became an elegant gathering place for lively elite crowds for the most prestigious events, including Charlie Chaplain’s wedding ceremony.
Stepping out of the Hollywood limelight The Alexandria played host to notable figures such as Winston Churchill, King Edward VIII and American presidents such as William Howard Taft, Woodrow Wilson, and Theodore Roosevelt. Accordingly, Ronald Reagan hosted a fundraiser for his campaign for governor in the early 1970s.
Today, these grand ballrooms carry the same celebratory spirit, holding numerous events and films. Hollywood stars such as Natalie Portman, Nick Jonas, Pharrell, and Beyonce have done film and photography productions at The Alexandria.
