Second chances bloom in the rescued and reclaimed woodwork lovingly installed into the walls of Revel Event Center. It’s an age of identity and the Revel identity is that of a historical Southern redemption.
We decided to give the old Handlebar a New Orleanian facelift after sitting dormant for years in its enviable downtown location. Exposed beams, delicate chandeliers and detailed wood artwork designs decorate the walls. Salvaged whiskey barrels are made of use in our extensively detailed restoration and can be found creatively placed throughout our Whiskey Lounge.
Revel is the only event venue located on Stone Avenue, between downtown and the Historic Earle District with 8,500 square feet of event space for up to 500 guests. Revel draws its influences from the French Quarter of New Orleans, drawing use of the building’s historical architecture through a careful blending of art, history and good ol’ Southern hospitality.
At Revel, we can host a multitude of different events:
- sit-down dinners
- cocktail parties
- holiday parties
- bar mitzvahs
- bat mitzvahs
- award ceremonies
- rehearsal dinners
+ anything your mind can envision, we can make come to life.
ABOUT THE SPACE
Revel is specifically designed for tailor-made and unmatchable events. Preview the below spaces perfect for your upcoming event. Each are available to be booked separately, pending the amount of estimated guests. For larger parties, the entire venue will need to be booked in order to keep your guests comfortable. Revel is perfect for weddings, high school reunions, charity events or corporate gatherings.
The Whiskey Lounge: A Whiskey Hall patterned after a true Bayou speakeasy. Whiskey barrels have been repurposed into tables and a stunning copper bar top has been artfully heat-treated to pull in a smoky tone for the high ceilinged room. This is an ideal space to use for a cocktail hour while the Grande Room is transformed from a ceremony space to a top tier reception room.
The Promenade: This lush Bourbon St. style courtyard is just the right place to sit and relax for a moment and sip a mint julep. This outdoor oasis is a perfect quiet space for conversation or catching your breath after groovin’ to the music in the Grande Room.
The Grande Room: The crown jewel of Revel. Antique chandeliers, barrel ceilings, exposed beams and large windows soak this space in unmatched afternoon sunlight. 1950’s hand fashioned bricks line the walls and center stage. This large 4500 square foot ballroom is a dance floor waiting to happen.
Grooms Quarters: This discreet room overlooks the Grande Ballroom from the back and allows the groom’s party to watch family and friends filter into the ballroom. Plush sofas, a fully stocked wet bar and plenty of open space allow for the menfolk to enjoy the moments leading up to the ceremony.
Bridal Suite: This room is brimming with beautiful lighting, and elegant furniture. The Bridal Suite has a completely separate entrance to ensure privacy for the duration of your time at Revel. A quiet place for the bride and her party to enjoy her final moments as a single gal.
