A function hall, reception hall, or banquet hall is a room or building for the purpose of hosting a party, banquet, wedding or other reception, or other social event.

Function halls are often found within pubs, clubs, hotels, or restaurants. Some are run by fraternal organizations and rented out as a fundraiser for the organization, for example Masonic Halls. Some condominium associations and apartment buildings have these to keep the noise of parties out of the residential units.

History[edit]

The first recorded mention of "function rooms" is in 1922.[1][2]
