A New Orleans' Hidden Jewel
For the first time in our exuberant history, the New Orleans Athletic Club is open to the public for private events! Be part of the heritage and exclusivity previously reserved only for members. We have various spaces for you to view, all with their own style that can accommodate groups from 20 up to 350+. Come see what the NOAC has to offer for your next celebration.
Classical tradition and elegance are the very best way to describe our beautiful Ballroom. If the walls could talk they would tell tales of spectacular weddings, Mardi Gras and debutante balls. Through the years, this beautiful space has been graced by pillars of the community and national celebrities. We invite you to come to tour this one of a kind room, now open to the public for special events on Saturday and Sunday.
