Only a few blocks from the waterfront in beautiful downtown St. Petersburg, the Palladium is within walking distance of many fine restaurants, hotels and boutique shopping.

The Palladium venue rental spaces include:

Hough Hall

The Palladium’s premier mainstage concert hall has near perfect natural acoustics, ambiance, and seating for 830. A recent investment in state-of-the art sound equipment, solid infrastructure, and professional staffing, has allowed the Palladium to seize new performance opportunities and facilitate a unique and valuable experience for artists, patrons and students. Classical, jazz, blues, opera, theatre, Celtic, acoustic, dance and more are all equally at home in this magnificent hall.

The Stavros Great Room / Side Door

The Stavros Room (events)/Side Door (shows) accommodates up to 185 people in a variety of configurations. Featuring a 12′ x 18′ stage, state-of-the-art sound equipment and a range of lighting features, this venue is perfect for luncheons, meetings, receptions and performances. With a raised stage, a specially-lit and dressed room including candlelit high-top and black-draped tables, the Stavros/Side Door is easily transformed into a club-like atmosphere, where evening performances showcase jazz, blues, acoustic, rock, comedy and other intimate performances.
