About New Orleans

New Orleans is a blend of loud, proud, and unusual which explains why the city attracts over 17 million visitors each year. Nestled between Lake Pontchartrain and the Mississippi River, the New Orleans landscape is defined by waterways. Its quarter-moon shape earned it the Crescent City nickname.

Historically, the metropolis has been prone to flooding but federal authorities stepped in and installed drainage pumps as well as a system of levees in efforts to solve the issue. The vibrancy, eclectic hybrid of cultural influences, and jazz music still reel in visitors for diverse reasons.

It's also known as the city of festivals and there's always a carnival or something interesting happening around town. That's why you can’t go wrong securing a New Orleans event space for your next function.

Event Options in New Orleans

You can steer the function towards a certain tone with the use of decorations combined with the right lighting. Floral arrangements are always a great touch to add to any event.

  • Furniture

Every event venue in New Orleans is uniquely different starting with the dimensions. In turn, each space presents certain limitations, for instance, the ceiling height, windows/doors, and access to electrical outlets. The layout needs to factor in these considerations as well as the flow of traffic. The way you set up the tables and chairs as well as the decor greatly affects how guests move around the venue.

  • Equipment

Whether your event brings together people for a presentation or an audience to watch a performance; you want them to hear everything loud and clear. Too much sound becomes a nuisance and sound that is barely heard makes the audience disengage quickly. New Orleans event venues take care of the equipment needs, but it's always best to check beforehand and plan accordingly.

  • Catering

Selecting a caterer in New Orleans is one aspect that you won't struggle too much with. With plenty of establishments borrowing inspiration from the city's Spanish, African American, and French influences; you are guaranteed to serve up a delectable menu at your New Orleans event.

  • Heating and Ventilation

Any function that brings people together aims at offering a great and comfortable experience. New Orleans is marked by long and hot summers while the winters are generally short, windy, and cool. Ventilation and heating is a crucial aspect that you shouldn't skimp out on. Ask the New Orleans venue manager about the available options and outsource what's needed.

Pros and Cons of Events in New Orleans

New Orleans, like any other metropolis in the world, has its advantages and disadvantages. It's best to learn about the good and bad when settling for a New Orleans event space.

Advantages

  • The spellbound experiences

The history of New Orleans is very much a part of the present, with droplets of the past in proud display just about everywhere. From ancient oaks and entire past neighborhoods that harbor remnants of bygone eras, wandering the streets of the metropolis feels like going on a historic yet modern journey.

  • Delectable cuisine

A visit to Crescent City isn't complete without sampling the unique and delectable Creole cuisine. Beignets are quite popular here with assortments of other spicy, sweet, cold, and hot dishes available. If your event requires the services of a New Orleans caterer then rest assured that your guests will leave well-fed and raving about the food.

  • The flat topography

New Orleans has a mostly flat topography making the streets highly friendly to explore on foot. Navigation is also quite straightforward in this city, and taking leisurely strolls won't feel like an exhausting workout. The majority of the neighborhoods receive much-deserved TLC and are a feast for the eyes to behold.

  • The cost of living

Hurricane Katrina forced most natives to move away from New Orleans in 2005. It devastated the region's real estate and prices took a nosedive. Compared to other similar-sized metro areas, the city is much more affordable than say Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Baltimore.

Disadvantages

  • Life moves slower

The slower pace gives everyone room to breathe but it doesn't always favor time-bound events. Known for its southern charm and hospitality, New Orleans can make you miss out on a lot while consumed with savoring performances, conversations, or simply relaxing somewhere.

  • Local pests pose a challenge

Brown recluse spiders inhabit the city, Mardi Gras celebrations signal the season of fire ants, and buck moth caterpillars have a knack for dropping off of oak trees in spring. Knowing what you face when planning an outdoor event in New Orleans makes you better prepared.

  • The subtropical climate

New Orleans experiences sub-tropical weather which can essentially put a damper on things. Humidity levels are high and the sticky heat unbearable if stuck indoors without proper air conditioning.

Famous Locations in New Orleans

  • Paddlewheeler Creole Queen

If you thought that Creole food is delectable enough, now imagine indulging in the cuisine while enjoying the sights of the Mississippi River. The Paddlewheeler Creole Queen located at the French Quarter provides this experience. It can accommodate up to 1000 people and there's a talented jazz band on board.

  • New Orleans Jazz Market

Jazz music is everywhere in the city and the New Orleans Jazz Market is a prime location to host your next performance. With a capacity of 370, it's full of interesting people. The added bonus is that some proceeds go towards supporting the local jazz community.

  • Nola Brewing Company

The East Riverside harbors the Nola Brewing Company known for its authentic craft beers. After your event, arrange a scheduled tour around the facility to see how the tasty booze is brewed. Book a peaceful second-floor restaurant In New Orleans, with a selection of fine wines and cocktails, for a meal after the event.
