Robert Adam Room

Located on the Payne & Mencias Box Tier and available for rent, the Palladium’s Robert Adam Room is an elegant but versatile 1,800-square-foot gathering space with outdoor balconies overlooking the Monon Greenway and Carmel’s City Center. Its décor includes an enormous mural, the only existing copy of a billboard advertisement for the 1951 MGM musical An American in Paris, selected from the Great American Songbook Archives. The room is named for 18th century Scottish neoclassical architect and interior designer Robert Adam, whose style is reflected in the Palladium’s interior color scheme.
