About Bourbon Street Balcony
Bourbon Street in the French Quarter is New Orleans’ best known street because of its year-round, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week party atmosphere.
Bourbon Street Balcony is the must-see venue for planners of Corporate Events, Private Parties, and Celebrations throughout the year! Offering a unique New Orleans Experience!
Location is Everything
The perfect party location for the perfect party! And we know how to make it happen!
New Orleans is “the city that care forgot.” But one thing we do care about is PARTYING! Your guests are sure to have the time of their lives in the best party spot in New Orleans – 232 Bourbon Street! It’s where the French Quarter action begins and the partying does, too!
Bourbon Street Balcony overlooks the gateway to the French Quarter, where there’s always an exciting view of the passing parade of tourists and locals forgetting their cares and celebrating – New Orleans style!
Spacious Venue and Privacy
Our spacious balcony is deeper than most, extending the entire width of the sidewalk below. Plenty room for your guests to frolic! We comfortably accommodate 30 to 100 party guests. Lots of room in our large reception area to celebrate inside, too.
Bourbon Street Balcony’s private entrance is manned for your party to guide your guests through the lighted alleyway to the winding staircase that leads to the raised outdoor courtyard. Inside the main house is the spacious reception room and that magnificent balcony!
This community is one of the most visually interesting in America and of significant historic importance. Many of the over 35,000 buildings in New Orleans listed on the National Register of Historic Places are in the French Quarter. Although called the “French” Quarter, you’ll notice the distinctive Spanish architectural touches dating back to the 1790’s, like the ornate wrought iron balconies that afford spectacular views. Like ours.
“LAISSEZ LES BON TEMPS ROULER!”
“Let the good times roll” is the New Orleans lifestyle expression, exemplified by the 24 hour party atmosphere on the best known party street in New Orleans. Newcomers to the city will understand the motto better after your party at Bourbon Street Balcony!

Thanks for the great time! Your facility and balcony made Mardi Gras very enjoyable for us.
I wanted to let you know we had a great time at your balcony party Sunday night, and will definitely recommend it to anyone we know planning the trip in the future. The balcony party will be remembered by all of us who were there. Thanks again!
Just wanted to drop you a quick line to let you know that you and your staff did an outstanding job Monday night. The room was always clean and there was never an empty tray of sandwices. Bob and I really enjoyed ourselves despite my broken foot. We are looking forward to 2005!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I would recomend your place to anybody and i think i will be comin back thank again
Just letting you know we had a blast! Thanks for all the great treatment and a fun time. We will definitely be back next year! Carol and Valerie, you were great hostesses. Have a wonderful year, see you later.
Brian and Robin Rasberry,
Thank you so much for last Saturday. We had a great time. You guys were wonderful.
Thanks for your Southern charm this morning. It's so refreshing that you remember us and are willing to work with me to ensure a success. I'll be at this function and look forward to meeting you.
Thanks for a wonderful time! Happy Mardi Gras!
Unfortunately, I was unable to attend, but all who attended from my group thought it was awesome! All were from out of state and said the experience they were afforded by having a balcony on Bourbon was outstanding. I enjoyed working with you all in setting this up and look forward to another occasion where i too can attend. I will let all the others know of the website for comments and feedback. Because I work for Lockheed Martin, which is a large company, I will once again let everyone know of the Balcony on Bourbon and hope to be able to set something up for them at a later date. Do you do anything for the St. Patricks/St. Joseph celebration in New Orleans? Again, thank you all for your help - everyone was very helpful and all questions were answered timely and accurately
WE HAD A GREAT TIME FOOD WAS GOOD AND WE NEVER GOT THIRSTY HOPE TO SEE YOU NEXT YEAR KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK
Mr. Ostendorf, Julie, Christine, and myself would like to thank you for the wonderful time that we had this past Friday over Mardi Gras weekend. We loved the fact that everything was so well organized and taken care of for us. I especially had a great time because it was my birthday. I thought the decorations were festive, the location was perfect, and the food was great. The music was jumping, and the outside heaters were probably my favorite. I know that Mr. Ostendorf would love to have more Mardi Gras parties with you guys at 232 Bourbon, so please keep us in mind in the future. Hopefully next time we can have it for the whole weekend!
My wife and I came with another couple this last year and spent madi gras day on your balcony. Had a great time!
We came in 09 to party on the balcony WE HAD A BLAST and plan to return this coming Mardi Gras...........Thanks for the party & How about those SAINTS?
Kimberly A. Shaw ,
We wanted to send our thanks for your hospitality which fulfilled one of our Mardi Gras fantasies ever since we can remember. Ya'll just made Mardi Gras 09 for us. We know we can go to Heaven with a big smile on our face now. Thanks so much to both of you..
Bonnie & Bobby,
Good afternoon, Had the pleasure of being invited to your facility on Fat Tuesday and thoroughly enjoyed it as the service and accommodations were great. Thanks and once again appreciate the hospitality Tuesday. Randy Sonnier Carol, just to let you know what a good time everyone had, we sent an email to everyone and asked if they would like to have the balcony again and the overwhelming response was absolutely and Saturday was the night.
I hope you survived Mardi Gras... everyone made it home safe on our end. I also wanted to thank you, we had a wonderful time and the food an service was awesome Thank you again for all your help
I rented the 232 Bourbon Street balcony for my brothers bachelor party using http://bourbonstreetbalcony.com and we had a great experience. I did a TON of research before selecting a space for our 23 friends and this location was by far the nicest and most moderately priced venue that I could find. In addition to that, the location is absolutely perfect and right smack in the middle of the heart of Bourbon. The owners, Carol and Bob, were very gracious hosts and communicated so well with me through the entire booking process and the evening itself. The balcony itself was easy to access, very clean, extremely spacious and included plenty of sitting area, private restrooms and a large balcony that easily accommodated 23 of us with room for more. Overall, a great experience and I would recommend this service to others!

It was such a pleasure meeting you both, and we had an absolutely incredible time. Your staff were absolutely perfect, and the venue could not have been any better. I'm still getting "thank you's" from everyone involved daily -- everyone had a blast. The only thing I would change if I had it to do over again would be to switch from liquor to beer early in the evening -- wow, was I hurting the next day! I hope we didn't drink your bar dry for the following days!

Thank you both so much for all of your help in making our rehearsal reception an overwhelming success! For many of our guests it was their first time in NOLA and you helped us show them how it is done! You were so easy to work with that you made planning our event from a distance extremely easy. Please call on us if need a reference for potential clients. Again, thank you and best wishes for your continued success!
Jim and Beth Delehanty,
This is written to complement you on the pleasant ambience and talented staff which make the Bourbon Street Balcony such a great gathering spot. Over the past few years, my husband and I have attended three parties there, and each has been memorable. The most recent event which brought us to your facility was the party hosted a few weeks ago by Ohio State University's metallurgy department. Your staff was professional and friendly throughout the event and helped to make the evening special, particularly for the out-of-town attendees. We especially enjoyed our interactions with Valerie, Harry, Ian and Van. They, and each of their co-workers, exemplify that uniquely New Orleans blending of kindly spirits, hospitable action and wit, a combination which represents your business and the city in a very positive manner.
