The Indiana Roof Ballroom, affectionately just called the "Roof," has been an important part of downtown Indianapolis for nearly a century. Located above the Indiana Repertory Theatre, it has hosted famous performers, high school proms, weddings, and ceremonies while creating the illusion of twilight in a Spanish town.

Dreamed up in 1926 by Edgar O. Hunter and Preston Rubush, the Roof first opened in September of 1927. Designed to appear as if you were in a European village, no detail was left out; painted grapevines creep up plaster columns, and the stucco facades contain exquisite detail, including doorways and balconies with ornate railings. The ceiling resembles a night sky, with twinkling stars, soft clouds, and a crescent moon against a dark backdrop. The 8,700 square foot, circular dance floor began with one, small square in the center of the floor. From there, it was expanded with small boards to create the 100 foot wide floor. The floor, which famous performer Lawrence Welk termed "the most comfortable dancing surface in the world" due to two subfloors and a cushion layer, was well-used by people in the '30s and '40s who came to see big bands.

Today, the Roof is still the place to be, recently being visited by Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mario Andretti, and Tony Bennett. It hosts nearly 250 events a year, including wedding receptions, corporate affairs, concerts, and ballroom dancing. Its state of the art light and sound systems and reputation for excellent food and beverage service have returned it to one of the best venues in the city, recently housing the Colts' Super Bowl Ring Party.
 
Indiana Roof Ballroom has received approximately 61 profile views in the last three months.
