Weddings are about families coming together to celebrate love, life and the beginning of forever. So it comes as no surprise that for over 45 years, this family-owned business has been the swellest setting for over 10,000 happily ever after’s. Now, their children, who grew up immersed in this rich familial culture of service and dedication are being handed the reins, bringing a fresh new perspective and vision to every event hosted at
The Balcony Ballroom.
So with its timeless aura, exceptional reputation, and endless options for food, décor and more, The Balcony Ballroom has a history of creating straight-up wonder for every event whether it’s a wedding, an anniversary, or just a party to celebrate being together. Which is why on your special day, you’ll always see one of the owners there to make sure the only thing on your mind is your groom. (And maybe the cake.)
From our elegant grand ballroom with sky-high ceilings to sweet music that will have you tappin’ your feet and tripping the light fantastic, there is no better place to have your event than here. And no other venue in New Orleans can give you the whole megillah like the The Balcony Ballroom.
We put the rainbow through the wringer and came up with over 4.2 billion colors for you to choose from. Try to get THAT with any other venue! You can’t. With our “Just For Hue” offerings, you get everything – gourmet food, beverages, music and impeccable service – but you also get a design specialist who will help you:
Our chefs are second to none. And because we make everything on-site with only the freshest of ingredients, you can believe that every bite will be mouthwatering. With crepes filled and rolled before your very eyes and hors d’oeuvres ranging from classic tea sandwiches to lump crabmeat with truffle butter in edible spoons, there is literally nothing we can’t make. All you have to do is ask. And if you or any of your party has dietary restrictions or preferences, we can create a menu that will be as memorable as your first dance.
With everything happening in our grand ballroom, every single one of your guests will see your first dance, the garter toss, the bouquet toss and hear the incredible toasts from your family and friends.

I cannot possibly say enough great things about this venue! What's even better than the amazing food, atmosphere, DJ and drinks are the people that work there. They took care of us all night long and were so attentive to the details that I didn't have to worry about a thing. They made sure our parents were taken care of too which meant a lot. This is really the BEST venue in the entire New Orleans area. Thanks Vanessa, Mike, Jay and Johnny for a wedding we'll never forget.Sent on 12/31/2017
