About The Hollywood Palladium: It was built in a Streamline Moderne, Art Deco style and includes an 11,200 square foot dance floor including a mezzanine and a floor level with room for up to 5,000 if standing.  The theater was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2016.

Los Angeles Times publisher Norman Chandler funded the construction of the art deco Hollywood Palladium at a cost of $1.6 million in 1940. It was built where the original Paramount lot once stood. The style dance hall was designed by Gordon Kaufmann, architect of the Greystone Mansion, the Los Angeles Times building and the Santa Anita Racetrack. He was also the architect for the Hoover Dam. The ballroom opened on October 31, 1940 with a dance featuring Tommy Dorsey and his Orchestra and band vocalist Frank Sinatra. It had six bars serving liquor and two more serving soft drinks.

 During World War II, the Palladium hosted radio broadcasts featuring Betty Grable greeting servicemen’s’ song requests. Big Band acts began losing popularity in the 1950s, causing the Palladium to hold charity balls, political events, auto shows, and rock concerts. In 1961, it became the home of the long-running Lawrence Welk Show.

From 1955-1976, the venue was the scene of Latin Music Orchestras sponsored by radio personality Chico Sesma titled Latin Holidays. The Tito Puente Orchestra performed regularly between 1957-1977 to sold-out houses.

 President John F. Kennedy attended a dinner given in his honor by the California Democratic Party at the Palladium on November 18, 1961.

In 2007, the owners agreed to a long-term lease to operate, manage and exclusively book the Hollywood Palladium with Live Nation, a Los Angeles-based company.

The Palladium reopened with a Jay-Z concert on October 15, 2008 after a year-long, multimillion-dollar renovation by Live Nation. The renovation included an overhaul of the venue’s interior and exterior, a new dance floor, expanded concessions, upgraded restrooms and improvements to the stage infrastructure. This month rock group Nine Inch Nailsrocked The Palladium with a full house.

In the 1950’s, the studios had Oscar parties there. In fact the Roger Neal Oscar Viewing & After Party will be the first Oscar Viewing Party ever held since that era.
