Eldorado Ballroom At 2310 Elgin St.

Don Julio

Recommended Posts

The Eldorado Ballroom (Dowling @ Elgin) advertised itself as "Houston's Finest Dance Palace," and later "The Home of Happy Feet."

The "house bands" at the Eldorado in the '40s were the Eldorado Express Orchestra, the I.H. Smalley Orchestra, and the Sammy Harris Orchestra. None of these are well-remembered today, however.

This ad appeared in the Informer on February 10, 1945. Something was happening there basically every night.
