ANNOUNCING BRAND NEW TABLE SECTION 3 AND
BRAND NEW HIGH TOP TABLE SECTIONS

This Fall we Introduce a Brand new Table Club Section in the Avalon Casino Ballroom. Look at diagram below. Look at Section E. Remember a few years ago when Section J opened up to Tables. These Cousin Sections directly in front of the Back of the Ballroom Bars are Elevated, lifting patrons Above the Ballroom Floor for direct Line of Sight to the Bands on Stage, with Premiere 4-top Table Seating and the Back Row closest to Bar will now be High Toppers.

The Back Table Seats will not only look over the Ballroom Floor Audience, but Look Over the Table in front of them too. We are working on creating a partial partition between Section E & J and the bar itself. These New Table Club Sections will now become some of the most Desired Of all JazzTrax Festival Seating. The Likes of Which the Avalon Casino Ballroom has not seen since it’s inception in 1929. Grab ‘em while you can!

Also the 2 Seaters in Club Table Sections F, G, H and I, this Fall become High Toppers, Lifting your Line of Sight not only above the Ballroom Floor patrons because you are elevated twice, but now Above the Tables directly in front of you. And with a Twist of the Head you are likely to have Ocean View too! Grab ‘em while you can!

CLUB SECTION FULL SERIES SINGLE SESSION BALLROOM FLOOR
AND WHEN THAT CHANGES

Club Section which includes all Table Seating, Club Section Front, and Front Row Is sold only by Full Weekend Series Tickets until late summer or early fall because Of the demand by patrons to have these premiere seats for an entire weekend, to match A full weekend’s Island experience. For Daytrippers, Single Session tickets go on sale for some Ballroom Floor Sections in early summer and for some Club Section and some Table Sections in late summer/early fall.
