@ Hippodrome Theater
The Beautiful Hippodrome Theater is located in Jackson Ward; known as the “Harlem of the South,” no doubt a reference to the quality musical talent that it attracted. In its heyday, Billie Holiday and Louis Armstrong performed at the HIPP. The theater has been beautifully restored with meticulous attention to detail. This is truly a one-of-a-kind venue and entertainment mecca for all.
Famed Second Street, known as the Deuce was a bustling hot spot of performance venues including the same Hippodrome Theater that stands today. Built in 1904 as a vaudeville and movie theater, it later became a celebrated musical locale attracting such legendary greats as Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, Duke Ellington, and Cab Calloway just to name a few.
Rich in cultural development, Jackson Ward was home to many influential people, including Maggie Walker, the first woman to charter and serve as president of an American bank, and Rev. William Lee Taylor, president of The United Order of True Reformers
The swinging 1930’s Art Deco Period influences the Hippodrome styling. High ceilings, a brilliant 8’ wide chandelier, mahogany bar, and herring bone pattern dance floor come together for a new of a kind venue. The first floor measures 65’x120’, which includes a 28’x43’ dance floor and a 20’x30’ stage. The Hippodrome also has a 60’x65’ balcony and a 45’x65’ private VIP room
The VIP Screening Room: Located on the Hippodrome balcony, the Screening Room is a luxurious setting. Inside this elegant space you’ll find a full service bar, lounge style seating, as well as pieces of history from the original Hippodrome Theater.
