The Legendary Blue Horizon

On the lesser known north side of the Avenue of the Arts, this former Moose Lodge was originally three brownstones built in 1865. Converted to the lodge in 1914 by Carl Berger, the building has served as the Blue Horizon boxing arena since 1961.

Since boxing became at the Blue Horizon, it has become the #1 boxing venue in the world. In 1998 Veronca Michael became the first African American Female Boxing Promoter, becoming co-owner of the Blue Horizon in 2002. The building was restored by Domus in 2004.

Carmichael Auditorium

The Blue Horizon is available for private functions, consisting of the Carmichael Auditorium and Blue Diamond Ballroom.
