Across from Anchorage’s Town Square, adjacent to the Center for the Performing Arts, close to City Hall, great shopping, major hotels and attractions, the Egan Center’s Explorers Hall is a meeting place in the heart of downtown. Large enough to stage a rock concert, but versatile enough to accommodate small luncheons or banquets, Explorers Hall can transform from one venue to another in no time.


For events requiring less than the entire hall, Explorers Hall offers flexibility; its sections may be rented individually, as Cook, Arteaga, and La Perouse Halls, and in combination, as Arteaga + Cook and Arteaga + La Perouse.
