Modular flooring allows the Civic to transform from tiered concert seating to an awe-inspiring reception space for your wedding day. With over 10,000 square feet of event space the Civic can host elegant seated dinners or traditional NOLA style receptions for 100 to 450 guests. Just one block from Poydras Street in the city’s Central Business District, the Civic is walking distance to the French Quarter and surrounded by hotels and attractions for your visiting guests.
