About the Venue
Located on Hollins Street, the Lithuanian Hall functions as a recreational center and meeting hall for social and cultural events. It is also home to the monthly “Save Your Soul” dance party. The Hall serves a special Lithuanian honey liqueur called Viryta, a drink fit for a king.

The Lithuanian Hall opened in 1921 after the building was renovated by architect Stanislaus Russell. The Lithuanian Hall continues to serve as a cultural and social center for Lithuanians to this day. Learn more about the building’s history at the Lithuanian Hall website.
