7. Edison Ballroom

Edison Hotel cafe

The Edison Ballroom on West 47th Street was once the grand ballroom of the Edison Hotel, next door, opened in the 1930s. The Art Deco style venue later became a Broadway theater and a Supper Club for dinner and big band music. The venue reopened, after renovation, in 2008, as an event space for weddings and the like. As a result, it’s hard to find a photograph to show its Art Deco core that doesn’t abound with colored lighting and over the top floral bouquets.
