The hall forms a part of the building called ‘the White House’

Bílý dům (the White House), including the Břetislav Bakala Hall located in frontmost section, was built in 1974–1976 on a spot once occupied by Divadlo na Veveří (the Veveří Theatre). Originally intended as the headquarters of the City Committee of the Czechoslovak Communist Party, this eight-storey building has housed a health centre and an outpatient clinic since 1989.

Its multi-purpose hall, which seats up to 300 visitors, was named after Břetislav Bakala, a student of Leoš Janáček, a major composer and conductor of the orchestra of Národní divadlo Brno (the National Theatre Brno) and Orchestr československého rozhlasu (the Orchestra of the Czechoslovak Radio), and founder of the Symphonic Orchestra in Brno, later renamed the Brno State Philharmonic. The hall currently hosts audio-visual conferences, film screenings, theatre and dance performances, lectures, and more.
