Messina's at the Terminal

Venue Details

Now restored to its original grandeur, the four event spaces inside the Terminal are among the most beautiful and unique in the city. If you’re in party-planning mode, you have to see them.

The Grand Atrium

Picture marble, granite, a terrazzo floor with an inlaid center compass, and a lovely upper level featuring amazing ceiling reliefs. If you can make yourself look down, you can enjoy a great view of the party below.

The Walnut Room

From the 1940s through the 1960s, the Walnut Room enjoyed a reputation as one of the most elegant places to see and be seen in the city. Thanks to a new renovation that revealed several hidden architectural design treasures, the Walnut Room is attracting crowds once again. Step back in time and experience it.

The Huey P. Long Room

The Huey P. Long Room opens out to the Observation Deck and offers spectacular views of Lake Pontchartrain. It is equipped with audio-visual equipment for presentations during your party.

The Terrace

If a breathtaking sunset is on your lists of must-haves, the Terrace delivers. This space, overlooking the lake and the runway, is the perfect spot to sip a cocktail and watch the sun dip below the horizon.
