Raffles' celebrated ballroom, This enormous, open, veradah-like addition tacked on at the front of the main building  opened with a lavish celebration on 25 January 1921. This welcome addition soon established Raffles as a dancing dance institution par excellence, featuring talented dance bands and acts from abroad. The hotel calendar featured both regular dances and musical events. Tea dances, from 5 to 7pm were a regular feature in this, "the largest ballroom in the East", through which one entered the hotel. This addition was finally removed during the 1989-91 restoration.
