Built in 1934, The Albert Palais has passed through several hands of ownership and has hosted countless guests.
For many decades the venue operated as a dance hall. In the late forties and early sixties the Albert Palais was one amongst a few legendary dance halls. It operated in the halcyon days of Sydney where young and old jived to the sounds of jazz greats such as Dean Martin, Tommy Dorsey, Stan Kenton and Duke Ellington. As the jitterbug craze swept the world, the Albert Palais venue filled week in week out.
In the early days the Albert Palais was renowned for playing old time dance music. Catering twenty-piece bands playing live music, the venue thrived on entertaining, satisfying and providing exceptional service to all their guests.
During this time the Albert Palais was the place to go dancing. Dance halls were the era of where clubs did not exist and the socialising involved around dancing, roller skating and the picture theatres. It was also a great place for young people to meet and get to know each other. It was well-known as the "Marriage Bureau" as so many people met and then later married there.
In 1981 the Albert Palais transformed into a venue hosting 600 guests and included musical entertainment, public speaking, food and catering. After the building had been closed down for several months, the Albert Palais was given a new life when acquired by the Onoufriadis family in 1993.
During the last 25 years it has transformed into an events centre offering service and catering for many occasions including Weddings, Christenings, Formals, Debutante Balls and Dinners.

Well, what can we say, we had the best day of our lives and you guys made it happen. The service, food, DJ and MC were absolutely great! The service was flawless.
Everyone commented on how that it was the best reception venue they have been to. One of our uncles was there and he has a lot to do with (name of business can’t be mentioned on website) and he has been to a lot of weddings all over the place and several at the (name of business can’t be mentioned on website) and he said your food was 10 times better than any wedding he has been to. Not just he commented, everyone thought the entrée was the main meal. They all couldn’t get over how much food there was and how delicious every serving was. Sam the DJ was great as well. Everything we discussed with him he delivered. John the MC was superb. He was great with all our guests and his friendly attitude towards the bridal party was greatly appreciated. If you could thank Sam and John for us we would greatly appreciate it. And finally you guys were FANTASTIC. We felt so comfortable with you both and you made us feel right at home. We couldn’t have asked for anything else. We would like to thank you both again and wish you every success in the future. Lots of Love
