Hi Joe,

    There are not any "real ballrooms" in Atlanta.....
However about the closest you will find to a real ballroom in Georgia  is:
Knights of Columbus on Buford Hwy.
Shriners on Ponce De Leon downtown.....here's another list for you.....hope it can help...
Be sure to call first---especially on thre bars, etc.  they are always closing as you probably already know.

I'm sorry I could not call this afternoon, but will try you on Sat....or if you don't work Sat. I will get you on Monday........kathryn
