The Orpheum is a nearly century-old Beaux Arts theater in the heart of New Orleans’ Central Business District. Built in 1918, the iconic space—which is one of the few remaining vertical hall designs in the US—has hosted vaudeville acts, films and countless performances by the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra. But its halls have sat dormant since 2005, when failed levees ushered Hurricane Katrina floodwaters throughout the building’s lower reaches.
Now, the Orpheum is entering a new era.
With a full renovation and passionate preservation completed, this classic space will open once more to the music-loving public as a fully restored, incomparably luxurious entertainment space.
More than a stunning historical structure, this reimagined space brings an entirely new tier of entertainment venue to New Orleans. The Orpheum's impeccable acoustics, said to rival that of Carnegie Hall, will once again delight concert goers. And with six bars throughout the space and Bella Luna Catering serving up concessions for every show, the Orpheum experience is pure entertainment—even before the curtain goes up.
The Orpheum is an intimate concert and performance space with perfect sight lines and unparalleled acoustics from each of its seats, which range in number from 1500 to 1800 thanks to a customizable floor seating plan. Three levels of seating, private VIP boxes at the gallery level and six bars round out the audience space, while six luxe green rooms and a full-service kitchen are available behind the scenes.
The new state-of-the-art adjustable floor allows the space to be utilized for meetings and banquets. The floor plan can accommodate receptions for 550 guests or seated dinners for 300 guests. We offer state-of-the-art sound and lighting, a projection screen and displays for presentations or branding, green rooms that can be used for small meeting breakouts and VIP spaces for a fully adaptable event experience.
Our space can accommodate live music, private parties, corporate meetings and events, comedy acts, Mardi Gras balls, film premieres, weddings, movie productions and more.
