The Neptune Ballroom and The Grand Pavilion

The Neptune Ballroom is perfect for rehearsal dinners, corporate meetings and wedding receptions.  With wall to wall windows, guests feel like they are part of the gardens while enjoying the air conditioning and ambiance of this elegant ballroom.  The center piece for this space is a pre-Civil War submarine with a rock wall water feature.

The Carriage House Restaurant and Latil's Landing      

For centuries ladies have donned wide brimmed hats and enjoyed afternoon tea. Houmas House brings formal teas to the Great River Road. For groups of 15 or more, by reservation, you can host a lavish affair complete with blueberry scones, caviar and champagne.   
If tea isn't what you had in mind,  The Carriage House Restaurant is open nightly for dinner or private events. This elegant ballroom is bright and airy by day and romantic and intimate by night. The seasonal menu takes a contemporary progressive approach to traditional Louisiana cuisine. To view more pictures, Click Here

In the 1770's Houmas House was a simple six room cottage.  Over the next century, Houmas House grew to 16,000 square feet and became known as The Sugar Palace.  Today the original 1770's manor house is the home to Latil's Landing. This fine dining restaurant was named Top 20 New Restaurants in the US by Esquire Magazine and is continually noted for its creativity and impeccable service.
There are four intimate dining rooms, each overlooking a courtyard featuring a lily pond with a lighted fountain.  Whether it's an anniversary, birthday, or special gathering, Latil's can offer the privacy and unique experience not found anywhere in Plantation Country.  To see more pictures,  Click Here .
