The Venue The Terminal, located at Lakefront Airport, is a New Orleans Tradition, dating back to the 1930's. At the time of its grand opening it was considered an architectural masterpiece. Built by the same architect that designed the Louisiana State Capitol building, it was the first major airport in the region, and served proudly as a general aviation airport to this day. Inside the terminal building, travelers would find an Art Deco wonderland, featuring murals by artist Xavier Gonzalez, friezes by Enrique R. Alferez and an array of stone wall and floor treatments. Messina’s at the Terminal offers two unique Event Rooms: The Atrium and the Walnut Room. The Atrium can accommodate up to 750 guests reception style (terrace level included) and 350 guests banquet style.
