Brown Derby Ballroom

A Classic Waterloo Location Brought Back to Life

JSA Development led the pain staking restoration of the historic Brown Derby Ballroom in downtown Waterloo, a once popular location that had been closed and shuttered since the 1970s.

The renovation included both the first floor lobby and the ballroom, which can host events for up to 200 people. Plaster details that had been modified or replaced over the years were restored based on old photographs, and the signature L-shape sign is a call back to the original sign that once hung on the front of the building.

Wired for sound and with color-shifting LED lights installed, the Brown Derby Ballroom is a great space ready to be used for receptions, meetings and events of all kinds.
