Congratulations on falling in love and deciding to make it a forever thing. It's always a good idea to say yes to love, and New Orleans is the place to wear your heart prominently stitched on your sleeve.

Whether you want to get hitched in the middle of a Second Line parade or waltz in a traditional Cajun wedding march, Ace Hotel New Orleans is a place for it all. Our Barnett Event Complex offers a collection of spaces that can be combined or separated in a myriad of ways - just as suited for intimate gatherings as for grand, raucous receptions.

Location
Ace Hotel New Orleans site on the corner of Carondelet and Lafayette street in the Warehouse District in one of the best cities on earth. Housed in a 1928 Art Deco building, the historic nine-story building stood as Barnett's Furniture Store until the 1970s and now stands as an homage to New Orleans' intrepid spirit of joie de vivre and community. Like the city itself, Ace is infused with disparate inspirations, with design elements inspired by Paris, the 1920s, Art Deco, and gothic light, with thoroughly considered modern details and warm spaces.

A short walk to the French Quarter, we're close to art galleries and shopping, museums, and restaurants, and you can see Mardi Gras parades if you crane your neck. But with oysters and cocktails at Seaworthy, handmade pasta at Josephine Estelle, live music at our venue Three Keys, and a rooftop pool and lounge, it's okay if you and yours never want to leave.

Wedding Amenities
Your wedding should be beautiful, stress-free, and unforgettable. We want you to revel in the moment with your loved ones, then ride out into eternal blissville. So let your hair down and leave the details to us - we've got you covered on all the big and little things.

For weddings of 100 or more, you'll also receive a complimentary wedding night in a standard suite, champagne on arrival to toast the big day, and breakfast for two as newlyweds.

Our wedding package includes:

  • Staff
  • Chairs
  • Tables
  • China
  • Silverware
  • Black or White Table Linens & Napkins
  • Glassware
  • Bistro Lights in Courtyard
  • Bevelo Lanterns in Barnett Courtyard

Facilities and Capacity
Weddings in New Orleans are particularly special. There's something profoundly magical about saying "I Do" in the Crescent City, and our event spaces are emblematic of New Orleans' ineffable spirit of love and perpetual celebration. Totaling over 10,700 sq ft we've carved out a collection of intimate nooks to suit every party's needs with Art Deco detailing throughout, amenities aplenty, and perfectly low lights to set the mood.

Cuisine
It's your menu, and we can customize it if you want to. We'll get you started with our base menu of options, and then you can add and change it from there, however you like.

Enjoy a wide variety of New Orleans-inspired menu choices to be prepared for your event. Select from several serving options, including buffet, family-style, hors d’oeuvres, plated, and stations.

Josephine Estelle
Named after each of their daughters, Josephine Estelle reflects the collaborative spirit of James Beard Award-nominated chef's Andy Ticer and Michael Hudman whose renowned culinary tell is the unlikely marriage between classic Italian recipes and the bright and mystifying flavors of the American South.

With an emphasis on seasonal ingredients, homemade pasta, and recipes passed down from our Maw Maws, Josephine Estelle is available for full or semi-private buyouts.

Seaworthy
Seaworthy showcases wild-caught and sustainably harvested oysters from American waters -- Gulf Coast, East Coast, and West Coast alike -- as well as locally sourced fish and game. The celebrated beverage program offers both classic and proprietary cocktails, with a smart selection of beer and wine.

Set in a classic Creole cottage build in 1832, Seaworthy was opened by Ace Hotel with support from the team at GRAND BANKS. Seaworthy culls inspiration from Gulf Coast waterways, the time-worn traditions of Southern hospitality, and the legendary exuberance of the city of New Orleans.

Seaworthy is available for full or semi-private buyouts.

Alto
Alto is Ace Hotel New Orleans' rooftop garden. Open every day for lunch, dinner, and drink, you can relax poolside while snacking on small plates, sipping seasonal cocktails, and enjoying panoramic views of the city. The hotel's culinary partners, Chef Andy Ticer and Michael Hudman have crafted an Italian-inspired small-plates menu focused on farm-fresh salads, seafood, and a selection of spiedini. In addition to cocktails, Alto's inspired bar offers a rotating tap, frozen drinks, craft beer, and fine wine.

Alto is available for full or semi-private buyouts.

    Beautiful & Unforgettable Wedding at the Ace

    From the beginning of our interactions with the events and sales team at the Ace, we felt empowered to plan the wedding of our dreams. Planning a wedding during the height of the pandemic was one of the craziest times of my life, but Brenda, Bonnie, and Ace and Seaworthy team had our backs the whole way. They went out of their way to make our concerns and anxieties feel heard and to make our ever-shifting plans feel as steady as possible, even with the pandemic city and state regulations literally changing every hour. Even with everything hectic going on, Brenda and Bonnie helped us move forward with a sense of calm and diligence that only tried and true events professionals can provide.

    Everything went off without a hitch thanks to the support of the Ace and their staff, all of whom were knowledgeable, consistent, accommodating, and compassionate toward myself and my partner, our vendors, and our guests. The health and safety of their staff and guests was always the foremost priority. The events team made my guests feel safe, relaxed, and able to fully enjoy themselves. Feedback from our guests were that they “felt like they were in a beautiful film” and that the “food was unbelievable, drinks were amazing—best wedding food” they’ve had.

    Huge thanks and kudos to Bonnie for being a sounding board and an open-minded and creative thought partner. Heartfelt thanks and kudos to Brenda for her clarity, candor, and resilience. The folks we met on our wedding day (Josephine Estelle and Seaworthy staff especially Stephen, Ryan, Jack, and everyone at the front desk and security) made us feel extra special and cared for. They were incredibly warm and helpful, catering to our needs and the needs of our guests—helping us locate lost and misplaced items, and accommodating all our asks.

    I cannot say enough good things about this venue and its people. From the flexibility of their event spaces to their delicious food & beverage program to their caring staff—our experience was excellent.

    Ace Hotel's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind words, Jeri! You were such a fun bride to work with! I'm so glad you enjoyed everything and most importantly that you felt safe having your wedding here during the pandemic. We wish you and David a lifetime of happiness!

    Best,
    Bonnie

    Wonderful Experience, Highly Recommend

    The Ace and their wonderful event staff made our wedding truly a special and memorable event despite the ongoing global pandemic. The fact that we were able to throw a super fun party in this climate where both staff and guests felt safe is a testament their time and care in making our wedding a reality. Whenever a new consideration or idea popped into our heads, Brenda and the rest of our contacts there were a quick phone call or email away and always responded promptly and with a matched enthusiasm. We cannot thank them enough for their time and hard work in making our event a reality and have gotten nothing but compliments from our family and friends who were able to attend, many saying it was such a reprieve from the daily grind of 2020 and so nice to feel just a bit "normal" and safe for an evening. We cannot thank the Ace enough for giving us this and we highly recommend them.

    Fabulous Experience

    My daughter’s wedding reception was held at the Ace on April 8, 2022. All I can say is WOW!! What an absolute spacious perfect place for a reception! The Barnett Hall is huge! It’s clearly large enough for a ceremony but she chose a church for that part.

    We had a live band, 4 bars, Plum Street Snoball, and approximately 250 guests. There was plenty of room for everything! The staff was extremely accommodating with the day of timing to get all the outside vendors set up.

    The night of the celebration was fabulous! The staff was very attentive and made sure all our needs and our guests needs were met. The food from The Josephine Estelle was phenomenal.

    We could not have chosen a more perfect venue! The entry to the wedding is a beautiful old New Orleans brick courtyard next to Seaworthy restaurant. The ambiance of the lighting led the way to a spectacular night and lifelong memories!

I have a passion for hospitality, travel and all things culture. I was born and raised in Savannah, GA. A port city with beautiful architecture, a rich culture and tons of Southern Charm. Over the past decade I've gained a wealth of knowledge in careers related to Events, travel and hospitality. I spent years living in NYC, Washington, DC and have traveled to over 30 countries. New Orlean's cultural depth attracted me to the city and I'm proud to call the Crescent City home. The city is a living, breathing, beautiful place, and its heartbeat is I strive to bring to every Ace wedding.
