Welcome to the River City Venues, the most sophisticated and sprawling event complex on the Mississippi. Whether you have an intimate group of 25, or a dynamic group of 25,000, our expert event planners will make your event shine. And when we say the sky is the limit, we mean it—enjoy the stars, the moon, and even fireworks from one of our various riverfront spaces!
If you can dream it, we can build it. Whether you’re organizing an elegant fundraiser, or hosting an international corporate event, we have the experience and expertise.
Maybe your guests would like to meander through the grounds of our elegant oak-shaded antebellum mansion on their way to the dance floor in our extravagant River City Ballroom? Or maybe they’ll enjoy the local music scene at one of our impressive outdoor concert stages, before meeting friends for a moonlit nightcap under our soaring outdoor tent?
New Orleans is known for its music, its food, and its culture, and it’s no surprise we know how to expertly throw an unforgettable event! Here are a few more venue highlights, but feel free to get in touch any time to ask us more questions about our facilities.
We are always delighted to share our menus and connect you with our coveted list of world-class caterers—but feel free to arrange outside catering or specify your preferred cuisine. Together we will deliver the best food for your guests and for your theme—from haute cuisine to a riverside crawfish boil.
We are a stone’s throw—or more appropriately a bead’s throw—from the New Orleans Convention Center. Our close proximity to the Center keeps travel cost and travel time down, especially when we pick up your guests parade-style on one of our world-renowned Mardi Gras floats!
Ask us about our parking facilities! We have an expansive lot which we can open for cars, a concert stage, or even a merry-go-round!
We are in the bringing-people-together business. We love parties and team-building workshops alike. Ask about our float-buillding events (did you know we recently helped 1,800 guests decorate their very own float?) or our popular mask-making workshops. We even have a little movie theatre on the premises, so let us know if you’d like to share a short film with your guests or clients!
We have state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment (and friendly onsite technicians) to service any event need (from concerts to corporate events). Whether you need 100 stacked flat screen TVs or a simple mic set-up, we can deliver the power and expertise. Don’t forget to ask about our onsite WIFI for you and your guests, too!
We pride ourselves on our expertise, our reputation, and our readiness. Our whip-smart coordinators will ensure your event runs smoothly from planning to execution! Give us a call any time—we’d love to discuss your event.
All our venues run along the Mississippi, but come rain or shine your guests can still enjoy the river’s ships and paddle boats from one of our outdoor plazas or indoor rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows. Our riverfront plaza also boasts a working wharf and docking access for riverboats or private boat christenings.
We do simple. We do spectacular. We do it all! Tell us a little about your dream event and we’ll handle the rest!
Many of our venues can be transformed into virtual other worlds with a fun theme and creative décor. Recently, we facilitated a game-time dinner overlooking an NFL football field, and for another client we helped deliver an extravagant Warhol-esque party complete with hired talent and tomato soup. Let’s also not forget simple! You’d be amazed what we can do with fabric, lights and music.
We work with the best rental companies in New Orleans. From tables and chairs, to linens and flatware, we’ll make sure your event is styled on theme and on budget. We’ve even been known to rent more extravagant items for our guests!
