Directions to the Wrainbow Ballroom

The Wrainbow Ballroom is above Stained Glass Designs in Downtown Bloomington and has a north entrance that faces the Bloomington Center for Performing Arts. The Wrainbow entrance is to the east of the Mulligan's beer garden, under the awning. The Wrainbow Ballroom is in a red-painted brick building.

**Please Note: It can be difficult to find, as Mapquest doesn't give an accurate location; Google Maps probably comes the closest.
