WITH A ROOFTOP VIEW
The Rooftop on Basin
Located less than a half of a mile from Bourbon Street and the French Quarter, The Rooftop on Basin features panoramic views of the New Orleans city skyline. Perched atop the historic Basin St. Station, The Rooftop on Basin offers endless options and formats for special events. The first floor of Basin St. Station is home to the New Orleans Museum. The second and third floors are home to New Orleans' most exciting new boutique hotel, The Brakeman Hotel. The Rooftop on Basin encompasses the fourth floor of the historic building.
Imagine starting your event on the first floor in the New Orleans Museum with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres while guests peruse interesting exhibits and history before whisking them up the elevator to the luxurious fourth floor. There guests enter the glass-enclosed salon with lavish, yet modern decor including a mahogany bar, antique chandeliers and commissioned New Orleans architectural and culture artwork. Then, they are escorted out the glass doors onto the large furnished outdoor terrace with gas burning lanterns, stone tile flooring and stunning views of the French Quarter and downtown New Orleans.

Messina's is an award-winning, classic New Orleans caterer with almost 60 years of experience catering weddings, social galas, corporate events, festivals, concerts, private residence dinners and more.

“Just wanted you to know that everything last night was perfect. Jane and I couldn't have been happier. All of our guests commented on what a wonderful event it was. The food was perfect. The wait staff was perfect. All came together for a magical night. You and Stacey should be very proud. Andrew, Lydia, Ralph and the whole crew did a fantastic job. Thank you for making a great memory”
