Boardwalk Hall is a multi-purpose facility located on the iconic Atlantic City Boardwalk and features the 141,000-square-foot main arena with a capacity of 14,770 seats as well as the 23,100-square-foot Adrian Phillips Theater with a capacity of 3,200. Constructed in 1929 as the country’s original convention center, for 85 years Boardwalk Hall has dazzled guests and residents of Atlantic City with legendary stage icons such as Elton John, Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, and the Beatles. In 2001, a $90-million restoration project was completed to transform the original convention hall into its current state as a modern special events arena capable of hosting concerts, sporting events and family shows. Boardwalk Hall is owned and funded by the New Jersey Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA). Spectra by Comcast Spectacor provides both Venue Management and Food Services & Hospitality to Boardwalk Hall.

Fights, concerts, pageants, exhibits and more. Plus the architecture itself is worth a visit whether you are going to a show or not. Keeps you out of mischief as well...at least sometimes it does.

Boardwalk Hall is a cavernous venue. It is the home of the Miss America Pageant. We spent a pleasurable evening with about 100 others watching Harold Lloyd's silent film classic Safety Last, accompanied by a live organ performance on one of the Hall's classic organs....More
