About Us

True to our namesake, we are in the business of molding a product that will last a lifetime. At The Foundry and Bella Luna Catering we view every event we are a part of as an opportunity to create an experience that will be remembered for a lifetime. Whether it’s a wedding reception or a business meeting we work diligently to take your ideas and expectations combined with our experience and resources and mold them into an unforgettable occasion for you and your guests.

The Foundry's authentic New Orleans ambiance and exceptionally adaptable space make it a truly exciting location for any special occasion-large or small, funky or elegant.

Situated near the Mississippi Riverfront in the city's historic and colorful Warehouse District, it boasts an open floor plan capable of accommodating groups of 100 to 1,200.

This is a place with its very own personality, evoking the romance of the Mississippi River in the era of steamboats and horse-drawn wagons. It occupies the ground floor of a warehouse dating from the 19th century. Wooden columns, two feet thick, rise more than 14 feet from the concrete floor to the wooden ceiling beams. Exposed brick, bearing the patina of many decades, form much of the corner building's walls, one of them partly covered by a mural depicting a quaint French Quarter courtyard scene.

Creating an unforgettable event begins with an unforgettable level of service. At The Foundry, personalized service is at the heart of what we do. Our passion is to make sure your event exceeds your expectations, which is why a member of our team will work closely with you to make your vision for your event a reality. Our goal is to make your event as worry-free and enjoyable for you as it will be for your guests. Contact us today to make your vision a reality.
