More

Arts Estuary rear view: building and courtyard

The grounds include a 100-year-old historic building, a courtyard, and a mini-forest enclosed by raw brick walls. An estuary is a place where fresh water meets salt water creating a lush, natural landscape that is teaming with life. Similarly, Arts Estuary is an oasis, a magical and natural hidden treasure in an urban environment.

Arts Estuary is a cultural institution housed in a renovated historic building at 1024 Elysian Fields Avenue. The property is located in the Faubourg Marigny area, one of the most dynamic and interesting neighborhoods in New Orleans. Its close proximity to the cultural experiences of Frenchman Street, the French Quarter and the St. Claude streetcar line make the location perfect for any event. Arts Estuary offers event space as unique as New Orleans itself.
