In the title compound, C(16)H(24)NO(+)·Br(-)·C(20)H(14)O(2), the N-hetero-cyclic six-membered ring assumes a half-chair conformation. The two naphthalene ring systems are nearly perpendicular to one another, making a dihedral angle of 89.5 (2)°. Inter-molecular O-H⋯Br hydrogen bonding helps to stabilize the crystal structure.
