Joel Catering created Il Mercato to bring special events to life in the heart of the Lower Garden District.

The recently renovated space exudes a distinctly European feel, featuring a classical courtyard and sweeping main hall with sumptuous, thoughtful details throughout.
The Old Ursuline Convent is one of the oldest buildings in the Mississippi Valley, originally built in 1752. Until 1824 it was a convent, an orphanage, and a girls’ school operated by the Ursuline nuns. Now the designated National Historic Landmark in the old French Quarter houses a museum and an incredible event space.
An 1830’s Creole cottage and accompanying buildings on the Lower Garden District’s riverfront comprise Race + Religious, an event space voted as “one of the world’s coolest rental houses.” This stunningly restored relic of a bygone era is the perfect setting for a quintessentially New Orleans event.
This impressive building located near the French Quarter was originally a Catholic Church designed by French architect Theodore Giraud and built in 1853.

The Derbès Mansion is an award-winning restoration of a New Orleans Landmark, set amid generous gardens shaded by oaks and sycamores in the centrally located Esplanade Ridge Historic District. The Derbès is centrally located one mile from the French Quarter and a mile and a half from City Park. Our 1858 Greek Revival manor has maintained many original details such as the hand-carved black marble mantles, ornate medallions, brass chandeliers, 14-foot ceilings, heart-of-pine floors, and Belgian Flagstones.
