Venue Setting

The original Brennan's, opened in 1946, recently emerged from an extensive renovation that spared no effort or expense by new co-owners Terry White and Ralph Brennan. Eight glamorous dining rooms, each steeped in New Orleans architecture and ambiance, celebrate the opulence of dining in a city where breakfast revelry is taken as seriously as a decadent dinner. 

Located in the heart of the French Quarter, Brennan’s private dining spaces can be combined to create a spectacular wedding event. Each event is customized every step of the way to create a memorable occasion.  It serves as the perfect location for rehearsal dinners, wedding receptions, bridal brunches, groomsman lunches, bachelor parties and farewell breakfasts. The fanciful design preserves the famous open-air courtyard, perfect for elegant ceremonies and receptions. 

Acclaimed Chef Slade Rushing's menus are rooted in Creole traditions and are bolstered with contemporary New Orleans influences. Marrying classic and modern techniques yields a decidedly innovative approach and enhances our local, seasonal offerings.

Brennan's old-world elegance, fanciful decor and pampering service create a unique and sophisticated backdrop for a most memorable event. Welcome!
