Have Questions?

WE WOULD LOVE TO HOST YOUR PRIVATE EVENT!

I'm interested in having my private party at the Bayou Gardens. How much does it cost to reserve a space?

There is no fee for reserving a space in the Bayou Gardens. There is also no minimum on food or drink orders to reserve a space… we are happy for you to just bring your group to our establishments and let them buy what they will!

A credit card is required to hold your space reservation and place any catering, food and beverage orders. If the minimum amount of people is not met, a $200 fee may be charged at our discretion along with 50% of any pre-ordered food or beverages.

Phone calls are always recommended to complete a party reservation to help ensure the safety of your credit card information and avoid any miscommunications about your wants and needs.

Please note: We can never reserve space for private events during Saints games, LSU games, or other major sporting or city events and festivals. For more details and to begin the reservation process, please contact David Demarest at (504) 259-5970 or david@bayoupartnership.com.

Pssst… the same person books parties for Bayou Wine Garden and Bayou Beer Garden, so multiple calls between establishments will lead you to the same guy. He’s kinda cool though.

I have "X" amount of people invited to my party... which space would you recommend?

There are minimum group sizes for different spaces (some exceptions may be made based on the day, at our discretion – call for more info!) Please call (rather than email) if your party may be more than 100 people.

We also have Private Buffet Style Brunch and Private Group Wine Tasting options available.
