The French Lick and West Baden resort area now has a new venue at Abbeydell Convention Hall located on the grounds of the Legend of French Lick, LLC, the former estate of an international sports celebrity . An open house and ribbon cutting will be held on Saturday the 30th of April from 11:00AM to 4:00PM with tours of the convention hall and the Legend hotel given throughout the day .  Ribbon cutting is scheduled at 2:00PM with hors-d’oeuvres served at that time.

Mike and Debbie Hicks, the owners, advised that “a once non-functional building has now been repurposed into a multi-use building”. The completely renovated building is offered for banquets, family reunions, festivals, off-site seminars, musical groups, new product releases, training events, trade shows and wedding receptions.

 The entire 20 acre estate, which includes Abbeydell Convention Hall, a six suite boutique hotel, nature trail, tennis court, swimming pool and basketball court, may be rented  exclusively or each suite rented individually.  The basketball court has been featured in the movie “Blue Chips” ,a  Converse All-Stars commercial that included Larry Bird and Magic Johnson, and other television specials and documentaries.

The main auditorium of Abbeydell Convention Hall has a seating capacity of 350 with a stage equipped with a WIFI PA system.  The 6600 square foot building includes a full kitchen.  The stage capacity accommodates a full range of performances and presentations with overhead adjustable spot lighting from nightclub to trade shows events.  A large exterior patio extends the usable space for outdoor activities.   A classic gazebo has also been added on the grounds of the estate and allows for additional outdoor  programs with lawn seating adequate for large weddings, festivals and other events.

The boutique hotel at the Legend of French Lick will accommodate up to 20 guests.  Additional rooms are available with group rates at the Comfort Suites of French Lick, a hotel with the same ownership.  Upcoming events already scheduled include The French Lick Jazz Festival for May 20,21,22 and a concert featuring Thompson Station on May 28 during the Memorial Day weekend.  Future events will be scheduled on a regular basis throughout the year.

The Legend of French Lick is five minutes from the French Lick and West Baden historic resorts, casino, world class golf courses and Patoka Lake resort area, thus expanding the opportunities for recreation while visiting the Legend of French Lick and Abbeydell Convention Hall. .
