Upon arrival at Houmas House, you and your guests can stroll the beautifully landscaped gardens to the Garconierre, known as the Turtle Bar for complimentary cocktails. This is the first step of an evening that will be remembered forever. You and your guests are then escorted on a Private Tour of the Mansion, where everyone will be entertained by stories of the way the Sugar Barons lived at Houmas House.
Following the tour, your party is seated in the Mansion Dining Room where you are served a seven-course meal specially prepared by our Executive Chef Joseph Dicapo. This experience is perfect for entertaining friends or family on their anniversary, birthday or any other special event.
Your favorite corporate clients have never experienced such a special evening. Imagine life in the opulence of the mid-1800s when Sugar was King, and Houmas House was the Sugar Palace. Were those ghosts in the next room? It’s up to you to set the tone for the indulgence of a lifetime, and Houmas House can customize the menu and wine pairings from our well-stocked wine cellars which offer over 700 varieties.
