The mix of modern high-rise buildings and chic restaurants and nightlife cozied up next to some of the oldest buildings in the country in downtown New Orleans and the French Quarter perfectly embodies the life of this vibrant city: historical charm with a contemporary twist. This theme can be seen in many wedding locations throughout the New Orleans as well. The Chicory, our third highlight in the Modern Love series, is a fabulous example of historic charm and trendy flair making a perfect union. You can also see our first ever location spotlight at The Chicory here.
Named Best Venue in New Orleans for five years in a row by The Knot, The Chicory knows how to put on a wedding. The 25,000-square-foot event space was once a coffee warehouse and embraces its industrial-chic charm. The exposed brick walls, gas lamps and wrought iron details are undeniably, classic New Orleans. However, having been a warehouse, the space is open and airy and more rugged than it is glitzy. The Chicory also features a swanky rooftop space with panoramic views of the Warehouse District. Up to 600 guests can be accommodated, however most are in the 200 to 300 range.
