The Historic Garden Vista Ballroom was originally built in 1922 as the home of Passaic Elk Lodge, one of the first Elk Lodges on the East Coast that was a focal point of entertainment in North Jersey. In 2005 it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Owner Jim Robbins allowed for the creative rebirth of this facility, returning it to a sophisticated private event space after four years of skillful restoration.

  • I cannot say enough amazing things about this venue and the staff that runs it. Jim and Viviana really went above and beyond to make our wedding reception everything we could have dreamed. Everything flowed so easily and planning our wedding was fun and surprisingly stress free. This venue, which included the most delicious menue choices, accommodating staff, chefs and bartenders, is so unbelievably affordable and beautiful. It was honestly love at first sight. In the daylight, the hardwood floors, open space, and floor to ceiling windows were just perfect. It was an empty canvas where we knew we could bring our Intimate dream wedding to life. The staff was there for us every step of the way. I would 100% recommend the Garden Vista Ballroom for the wedding of your dreams. We are so grateful we found this venue!
