A New Era


Welcome to the transformation of the Board of Trade, where history meets modern elegance. Our renovation is bringing new life to this iconic New Orleans landmark, honoring its rich past while enhancing its beauty.

We’re preserving the stunning Renaissance Revival architecture, while refreshing the color palette, adding beautiful new lighting and flooring, and increasing the event space. The renovation also means new luxurious restrooms, a state-of-the-art kitchen, and improved sound quality. We’ve made the space more accessible and raised the level of the interior courtyard to make it even more inviting. This extensive project shows our dedication to excellence, with every detail carefully improved.

Book with confidence, knowing that when we reopen the Board of Trade will offer the perfect blend of historic charm and modern luxury for an unforgettable event experience.
