Built in 1930, Asbury Park’s Convention Hall was designed by the same architecture firm responsible for New York City’s Grand Central Terminal, Warren & Wetmore. Designed in the Beaux Art style - incorporating sculptural design along conservative modern lines – the complex comprised of The Paramount Theater, The Grand Arcade and The Convention Hall.

Over the years, Convention Hall has hosted countless events, conventions, and concerts. Since February 2008, Convention Hall has served as home court for The Jersey Shore Girls Roller Derby League. Home bouts are commonly hosted in partnership with a local charity in effort to give back to the community.

In 2010, decorative copper plates were removed from the façade of Convention Hall for structural inspection and placed in storage. Two years later it was revealed that thirty-four of the plates had been stolen, an estimated value of $50,000, leaving the building vulnerable to severe weather, most recently Hurricane Sandy.

And in 2013, the iconic building was under threat of closure when a submission deadline for installation of a fire code standard sprinkler system was missed. The building’s developer was granted a temporary extension to allow Convention Hall to remain open for the 2013 summer season.
