Historical New Orleans Venue

In New Orleans, there’s a story on every street corner. The Monastery starts in 1812. In the 164+ years since, it has transitioned from monastery to the city’s premiere full-service wedding venue.

The Monastery

Keeping with the authentic New Orleans experience, we completely preserved the buildings’ architectural integrity, while adding modern amenities necessary to wow your guests. From the gas lanterns to the exposed brick and beams, great care has been taken to retain the original character of our space.

With more than 30,000 sq. ft. of space, The monastery is the quintessential New Orleans-style venue for exquisite wedding receptions in the French quarter. We are also one of the only wedding event spaces that has its own chapel as well as reception halls with seven private individual courtyards.
