The Beach Ballroom is an art deco building on the beach boulevard of Aberdeen, Scotland. It is home to one of Scotland's finest dance floors - famous for its bounce - which floats on fixed steel springs. It was built in 1926, and is a Category B listed building.
It regularly plays host to music and dance events, conferences, weddings and British Masters Boxing bouts.
The Beach Ballroom is owned and operated by Aberdeen City Council. The Beach Ballroom is also the site of a webcam that faces South, along the beach towards Footdee. The Ballroom is connected to the more modern Beach Leisure Centre via an indoor walkway.
