Private dining rooms inspired by the legendary Marlene Dietrich and Louis Armstrong

A beautifully restored 19th century residence is now home to The Louis Armstrong Room, inspired by the life, talent and incomparable charisma of New Orleans’ own jazz pioneer, and The Marlene Dietrich Room, which pays tribute to the glamorous international star who went on to become a tireless volunteer and entertainer for Allied troops during World War II. Each room presents a dramatic dining setting for up to 12 guests, enhanced by period photography and fascinating memorabilia.
