The Rotunda

Double-click on the images above to see larger versions of the images.
The soaring four-story Rotunda, designed in the Beaux-Arts style, provides a perfect setting for standing receptions or seated dinners. Featured is the Great African Bush Elephant, the largest display of its kind. Dramatic lighting and other d├ęcor elements transform the Rotunda into a spectacular venue.

The Rotunda can accommodate up to 350 guests for a seated dinner and 500 guests for a standing reception. This capacity increases to up to several thousand if the Rotunda is used in conjunction with nearby exhibition halls.
