Venus of the Southland. The Sky Room.

Today I'm talking about the Historic Sky Room. It is located on the 14th floor of the Breaker's Hotel in Downtown Long Beach. It is an Art Deco lover's dream. It has the feel of a supper club. It has been open since 1926 has received many awards for it's cuisine. There is a 360 degree view and on clear day you could see the Hollywood sign on one side and Catalina on the other. It seats about 240.

There is also a roof top terrace La Cantina del Cielo that is Spanish in flavor on top of The Sky Room. You have to go up a narrow flight of stairs get up there but it is worth the trek. It seats about 70 up there and is open air. Perfect for an intimate affair.

There is a wedding chapel on premises in a Grecian motif & the Empire Ballroom downstaris. A little weird compared to upstairs. They don't have the stlye or the view. I did notice a weird odor while touring the property, but with flowers and people I don't think it will be noticed.

If you want an elegant Art Deco wedding this is the perfect setting for it.

Happy Reading,
