An Event Venue – Elevated

Having hosted iconic New Orleans events since 1918, Arnaud’s is the ideal venue to set your event apart.

Our collection of historic buildings has multi-use space that includes 17 dining rooms and 3 balconies, making Arnaud’s private dining rooms the perfect backdrop to make your event unique. Each of our elegant event spaces is equipped with high-speed internet and can accommodate additional power needs upon request. Located in the heart of the French Quarter, our central New Orleans location is within walking distance to most major downtown and French Quarter hotels and a short cab ride to the Ernest Morial Convention Center.
