Join us at a spectacular late Victorian Ball at the historic Alameda Elks Lodge Ballroom and Salon. Greenwich Mean Time will play a varied program of late 19th Century dance music, ranging from Victorian rotary waltzes, Viennese waltzes, polkas, mazurka waltzes, and schottisches to quadrilles, contra dances and mixers.

Doors open at 6:30 pm and there will be a pre-ball dance class in Victorian ballroom dance at 7 pm followed by formal dancing to live music from 8 pm to midnight. No partners required and all quadrilles and set dances will be taught and called at the ball. 

Late Victorian costume ((1860-1900), Victorian Steampunk costume, vintage attire, dress uniform or modern evening dress is admired but not required. For costume inspiration, see Martin Scorsese’s film version of The Age of Innocence or Season 1 of The Gilded Age mini-series.

Our celebrated No Host bar will be open but we suggest our guests dine before the ball. There are a variety of excellent restaurants in the neighborhood, especially on nearby Park Street.
