PRESS STREET STATION

Press Street Station is a beautiful, airy event venue at the corner of Homer Plessy Way (formerly Press Street) and Royal Street, where the historic Faubourg Marigny and Bywater neighborhoods meet. Like much of NOCCA’s campus, it features architectural details from the room’s long history as a railway facility and warehouse. The 2015 restoration added modern updates, including glass garage doors that can be rolled up during nice weather, a marble bar, flat-screen TVs, and of course, a professional kitchen. Press Street Station began as a restaurant, but due to strong demand for the space, it’s now focused exclusively on events.
