An unexpected event location has risen from the ashes of the fire 2020 put on the restaurant industry. Announced in a press release, Nolé Restaurant on St. Charles Avenue will reopen this year as Nolé Special Events Venue.
A concept by Al Copeland Jr. and family, Nolé was a neighborhood fusion restaurant that opened before citywide pandemic shutdowns early last year. As Copeland Jr. points out in the press release, the location of the venue is in the heart of the historic Garden District and in a prime spot on St. Charles Avenue.
Nolé Special Events Venue and team promise the “ultimate guest experience for corporate events, weddings, showers, banquets, receptions and parties” all with robust menu options provided by Copeland’s catering company Mirepoix Event Catering.
The setting in its entirety is over 6,500 square feet of indoor and outdoor space, giving couples and the venue’s on-site event coordinator endless planning opportunities.
“Our flexible, open floor plan is suitable for all types of celebrations,” said Al Copeland Jr., owner and founder of Nolé Special Events Venue in the press release about the reopening. “It is an all in one destination with the ability to eat, stay, play with our Coach House Hotel connecting to the building. And as a born and bred New Orleanian, we know how to throw a good party!”
The Coach House Hotel is a new boutique hotel by The Copeland Collection of Hotels. As previously stated, it is connected to the building that houses the Nolé event space and promises to offer guests a sanctuary away from the busyness of downtown New Orleans, while conveniently being located to all the must-visit areas of the city.
Nolé Special Events Venue seems to offer about everything a couple could ask for in a ceremony and reception location. The press release also states that Nolé will provide everything from tables and place settings to customizable menus and accommodating dining preferences since all food is prepared on-site.
They do make a note that outside vendors for additional décor, tableware and catering – among other necessities – are welcome upon approval from Nolé.
Though we have yet to experience the new Nolé, it seems like a promising event space that New Orleans couples can add to their list.
