Carver Theater

2101 Orleans Avenue, New Orleans, LA
Max Capacity: 800 people
While primarily used as a concert and entertainment venue, Carver Theater is often used as an event venue as well. The theater’s main hall can seat 940 people comfortably or approximately 300 guests with tables. The venue also features a large stage, a DJ booth, a separate bar & lounge area and plenty of off-street parking. Carver is located within minutes of the French Quarter and the costs to rent are very reasonable, making it a perfect location for wedding receptions, corporate events, film festivals, music conferences and other art-related events. Named after George Washington Carver, the Carver Theater was built in 1950 in the New Orleans historic neighborhood of Tremé. At the time, the Carver was considered state-of-the-art and hailed as America’s finest theater for African American patrons. In 2006, the theater suffered extensive damage from the devastating Hurricane Katrina. Following an $8 million renovation, Carver was able to be restored to its original glory and reopened in 2014. The theater is now included on the National Register of Historic Places. The Carver now boasts a unique combination of history, character and high-tech, modern amenities suitable for all audiences during any occasion.
