THE SPACE

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 Catering & Events is the exclusive caterer at The Rooftop on Basin.  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. A chic and elegant Big Easy location, coupled with authentic New Orleans cuisine ensures an event to remember.

REAL TALK

Troy + Amanda

“Messina’s exceeded all of our expectations in every possible way. This facility provides a first class and elegant experience from the hardwood floors, table linens, chairs, DJ, security and an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING selection of food choices. If you are looking for a professional, friendly and courteous staff, then look no further, they are military friendly and they treated us like royalty the entire day. My wife and I highly recommend Messina’s for anyone who is looking for a place to host their wedding. Thank you guys again for making our special day, even more special!!”
