The Inside Scoop


FROM THE KNOT EDITORS

The First Look

For couples envisioning an Uptown New Orleans wedding celebration, Rosy’s Jazz Hall is a wedding and reception venue with legendary roots, fabulous flavors and meticulous service. This historic building was built in 1855 and was renovated by Rosy Wilson into Rosy’s Jazz Hall in the 1970s when it played host to many legendary musicians. Located on Valence Street at the corner of Tchoupitoulas, the property was later restored and renovated in 1998 by its current owner and offers its beautiful indoor atrium venue and hall for weddings and receptions with 75 to 300 guests. An outdoor courtyard venue is also available for wedding ceremonies with a maximum of 200 guests.

The two-story indoor atrium venue is intimate with loved ones gathered in the gallery below and filling the balcony above. Two towering ficus trees grow in the middle of the atrium and lofty floor to ceiling windows at the front of the atrium continue the open feel of the space. Exposed brick walls, ceramic tile floors and classic dark woods tie it all together for a romantic ambiance. For the ceremony, the capacity is 200, with some guests seated, plus balcony viewing.

Afterwards, the party begins as the band takes the stage in the hall. The flow of the space encourages mingling and conversation as guests enjoy fresh and delicious cuisine, open bar and the large dance floor just in front of the stage.

An outdoor courtyard patio provides a quieter oasis for guests to step outside for fresh air during the festivities. Lantern post lighting, stone tile pavers, brick planters and trellised garden walls frame this charming spot, also ideal for an intimate ceremony.

This venue was the perfect size and perfect ambiance for our destination, laid back wedding. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Steve and Darlene.

I can't even start to express my gratitude towards Steve and Darlene for creating the absolute perfect wedding for us. It honestly exceeded our expectations; not only is the venue honestly the most beautiful venue I've EVER seen, but the entire operation was a well oiled... Read More machine. There's no one I would trust to pull off such a production more than Darlene, and we feel so lucky we had the opportunity to have her with us throughout the process, right by our sides. The vendors were contacted and coordinated by Darlene the week prior, and she even reviewed contracts before as we were honing in on vendors. At the wedding, she let me know that she's "the only person who wears a watch," and did her best to keep an icy cocktail in my hand throughout the night. After the reception, she had all of the things we had to take from the venue all packed and ready to go, and most importantly, made sure it got to the right people (God knows I couldn't be trusted with that at that point). They truly made us feel special and attended to throughout everything. All of our guests were raving about the uniqueness of the hall, and the delicious food. The bartenders were efficient and awesome, I could tell they were having fun with us, and that meant a lot. They made this process an absolute breeze; all I had to do was show up and have a blast.

I cannot say enough good things about this reception hall. I worked at a wedding reception hall for years, so with my experience I was very picky and had high expectations. Rosy's has completely outdone themselves. Steve got back to me on every email, phone call within hours.... Read More Darlene was a general and had everything organized to the minute, she lined up my vendors and took care of everything for the day of. The staff was so friendly, and they were working a double that day. In that industry, doubles are so exhausting! It was the little things we appreciated, for example, during our second line all of the staff came out and waived at us, throwing streamers in the air, clapping and making sure we had fun. They genuinely looked excited for us. There was always a tray being passed around, no one went hungry. I never had to ask for a drink or a bottle of water. The food was 5 star restaurant quality, nothing was frozen and dumped into a fryer. My guests were raving on how good the food was. The best part about the food was that we actually got to eat it!! Darlene whisked us away upstairs to give us a breather and there was a table set for two. Besides the service and the food, the venue itself is just gorgeous. I wanted a vintage New Orleans feel, with the band we hired it was like we were thrown back in time to a 1940's Jazz club. It was perfect, my vision came to life. I could seriously go on and on about this company. I would definitely recommend Rosy's

We had a church wedding and then followed with our reception at Rosy's Jazz Hall.

Read More also SO IDEAL for live music - very old school, retro feeling, and we had a blast with our friends' band playing. Everyone was raving about the food, the drinks and fun bartenders, the beautiful atmosphere of the venue, and how overall unique the experience was. Our out-of-town guests, many of who were experiencing a Southern wedding for the first time, got an absolute kick out of all of it. A few other smaller things - we had a daytime wedding and I initially chose Rosy's because I loved the atrium and how you didn't feel like you were going in to a black-hole-wedding-reception-venue where you walk out, blinking your eyes. The daylight and the greenery really contributed to the ambience of our daytime celebration. Another thing - I loved that all of the food is simply taken care of. And it's SO GOOD. Not having to worry about a caterer was such a big perk for us. Lastly, the location makes it so easy for guests in cars. As someone who had a lot of family driving in from nearby, not dealing with the French Quarter was a big part of my decision to go with Rosy's initially - and there is no lack of character here! I would choose this venue over and over again for our wedding. It was perfect!
