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.


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