This hall had a tri-partite facade, with a central entryway separated by long wings to flanking end pavilions. The entry and ends all featured false-fronted, Spanish Baroque gables. The building's windows were all arched and its walls covered with plaster, giving it a Mission Revival character, a style associated with Northern and Southern California, but also not uncommon in Seattle at the time.

Demolished in 1957.
