Spider House Ballroom

Formerly known as the United States Art Authority, the Spider House Ballroom is a happening joint almost every night of the week. The venue is owned and operated by the Spider House Cafe next door, and they recently underwent a shift in management that led to a much needed renovation. The indoor stage is now front and center, and the red velvet curtains have been restored to their former glory. The bar is intimate but ready to handle the flow of traffic. And the two outdoor patios handle the overflow of attendees for the arts, music and literary events that happen inside.

If drinks aren't enough (or are too much) to keep you going through the night, you're welcome to bring food over from the Spider House Cafe next door.
