Repost: The Beach Ballroom

The Beach Ballroom

The Aberdeen Beach Ballroom is an art deco building which overlooks the Aberdeen sea front. The venue was opened in 1929 and it is home to one of Scotland’s finest dance floors – famous for its bounce – which floats on fixed steel springs.

The Beach Ballroom is about a twenty minute walk from the city centre along the main beach road, the Beach Boulevard.

The Beach Ballroom is the venue for the ITiCSE 2019 Pre-Conference Reception, to be held on the evening of Sunday 14th July.
