Welcome to the London Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city, brought to you by New London Architecture.
The Rivoli Ballroom is one of the last remaining intact 1950's style ballroom left in london. Designed by Henley Attwater with a simple barrel-vaulted auditorium it first opened in july 1913. Fitted with a sprung Maple Dance floor, you can dance all night without feeling it on your feet.
The interior and exterior fittings have remained the same, creating an authentic 1950's and 1960's vintage look. Which is why it is used as a TV and film location for huge productions such as BBC's Stictly Come Dancing, The Muppets and The Avengers, the movie. As well as the new Film featuring Tom Hardy, Legend.
We also have hosted music videos and gigs such as Florence and the Machine, White Stripes, The kings of Leon, Damon Albarn and Noel Gallaghers High Flying Birds.
Within the venue we have ladies and gentlemen's cloakroom, a boudoir, two separate bars as well as a smaller gold ballroom . We have seperate changing/ green room space.
