BalQony is able to accommodate up to 300 guests for larger private events such as weddings, as well as be available to rent out for smaller private occasions, from engagement parties to fundraisers, luncheons and more. When not being used for a private function, the fourth floor reception and lounge space will be open to hotel guests as well as the public, providing an additional venue option for guests and locals alike who wish to come in and enjoy a quick bite for lunch, happy hour with friends or co-workers, and more—all while surrounded by the scenic outdoor terrace views of the Atlantic and Fort Lauderdale beach.
