Project Story

Sylvan Beach Pavilion is located in La Porte's historic Sylvan Beach Park on Galveston Bay.

Social dancing is celebrated in the pavilion's design that features a 10,000 sf. glass walled ballroom with a 3,600 sf. circular dance floor.

This historic building has been successfully renovated, reinstating its superb status.

The county owned and Shafaii operated venue is a state archaeological landmark and a historic socialite destination.
