Weddings & Special Private Events

Located in the heart of New Orleans’ historic French Quarter, Cafe Amelie is considered by many event and wedding planners to be the ultimate location for courtyard weddings, commitment ceremonies, receptions, rehearsal parties and dinners, corporate events or any other special occasion. Our historic architecture and lush lit tropical gardens combine to create an atmosphere that is truly New Orleans.

Combined, the Carriage House and Courtyard can generally accommodate groups in size from a minimum of 100 guests to a maximum of 125 guests for a reception-style event; however, seating can only be guaranteed to 110 guests.

Chef Jerry Mixon can prepare a menu customized to your food preferences and budget. We partner with our purveyors to select the freshest and highest quality ingredients available from local farmers, fisherman and ranchers whenever possible to prepare your menu. Our nationally recognized team will do everything to ensure that you and your guests have an experience that will be cherished for years to come. See the links below for our Private Event menus.

To secure your requested food and beverage choices, we require a 50% deposit of your food and beverage selections a minimum of 90 days prior to your event. The balance remaining for the entire event would be due a minimum of 30 days prior to your event.

Check date availability for your event on the calendar below.

Rental charges for a private event begin at $3750.00 for three hours; this includes a $500 refundable damage deposit. With prior notice, your event can be extended at $750.00 per hour. Wedding ceremonies are also available at an additional cost. To secure your requested date, we require full payment of the venue rental fee. Food, beverage, staffing and enhancements are additional but handled by the Cafe Amelie event team.

For further questions or to make an appointment to discuss your event, please contact Danny Akers, General Manager/Events Planner, at (504) 412-8965 or visit our contact page.  If you would like to schedule an appointment, available times are generally scheduled between 9am - 4pm, Wednesday - Friday.  Please plan on about an hour for a full site visit.  If you would like to simply stop by and see the space, you are welcome to join us anytime during restaurant business hours.
