Rehearsal Dinner New Orleans
When you're planning a rehearsal dinner, New Orleans' abundance of beautiful venues can make the choice a challenging one. Simplify the decision by choosing one or more of the spectacular options available from Audubon Nature Institute. With on-site catering from Chef Alan Erich and venues ranging in size and formality from a small casual cocktail reception to a 1200-person formal ball, Audubon has everything you need to make your event one to remember.
If you're interested in a fun and unconventional approach, our Cajun Ballroom at Audubon Zoo, nestled at the heart of the Louisiana swamp exhibit, offers an ideal venue for rootsy fun. Crawfish boils are available from our catering staff, and staging for a band is available for you to fais-do-do the night away. For a more elegant and traditional option, Audubon Tea Room and Clubhouse Café offer lovely, timeless surroundings to give your party the old-school charm of a formal. The hidden gem of the clubhouse offers semi-private hosting space during the daytime, converting to a fully private venue at night. Exotic animal guests from the Zoo and their capable human handlers are available to show off the unique wonders of nature that Audubon is proud to support. Our catering services have been officially recognized by the Green Restaurant Association, an organization dedicated to reducing the amount of waste, energy consumption and pollution. Our elephants Jean and Panya are happy to take care of any leftover treats!
