The New Orleans Board Of Trade was founded in 1880, and trading continued on the floor until the mid 1960's. Centered on the eastern wall of the building are three clocks, which have been in place since the building was erected, giving the times in New Orleans, New York & Rio de Janeiro, which were the major players in the Green Coffee Trading. Additionally there are chalkboards that were used to notate the commodities that are still in place and can be used to create special messages for social events and markeing information for corporate events.
For the past 20+ years Pigéon Catering & Events has been the exclusive caterer at the New Orleans Board of Trade. Although Pigéon has had exclusivity at the Board of Trade, they are the preferred caterer in about 20 other venues throughout the city. As of May 1, 2023 the Board of Trade will be undergoing a complete renovation and will not be on line until well into 2023, or early 2024. There are many avaiable dates between now and then. Please see the calendar of available dates on the contact page. We are more than happy to work with you in finding the perfect venue for your wedding, social or corporate event.
