Perfect space for an event! - An Eventective User

The venue is stunning! It is the perfect location if you are looking for somewhere with character and a bit of New Orleans charm. Linda and Tyler were both amazing and very accommodating to specific requests and last minute changes. The staff at this location go above and beyond. Definitely recommend this venue for an event!

Perfect for Small, Intimate Wedding Ceremony! - An Eventective User

Fantastic experience and exactly what we were looking for with a small group (8 people total). The staff was on-time, knowledgeable about paperwork, and always communicated back with us. The location was amazing- right off the French Quarter- and had some great photo opportunities. We included hors d'oeuvres and a cake and they both exceeded our expectations. Absolutely would recommend Starlight for couples seeking the "vibe" of New Orleans but on a small, intimate scale!

The Starlight - An Eventective User from NEW ORLEANS, LA

The Starlight is pure magic. The venue is stunning, enough old charm reminiscent of New Orleans. The venue exudes sexy coziness that evokes natural and easy conversation. The acoustics are great, so you don't have to scream to be heard, which makes ifor comfortable conversations. The passed appetizers were special and hot, and the downstairs bar is the perfect French Quarter place to enjoy an event. Every room, on both floors sets a mood and promote comfort and mingling. The host, Linda Novak, has a terrific sense of what works and she takes great care to oversee and make sure the guests and hosts have what they need for a perfect event.
