New Orleans has never come up short of reasons to bring people together for a good time. With the city’s film industry presence, there’s one more reason to let the good times roll. Visitors to ‘Hollywood South’ and locals can get that iconic NOLA combination of culture and cuisine with Louisiana’s home grown favorite, Walk-On’s Bistreaux and Bar.

With every production comes a reason to celebrate and why not take advantage of ESPN’s No. 1 Sports Bar in America to do so? Appearing alongside classic bar food favorites, are Cajun inspired dishes like gumbo, po’boys and seafood platters. For a more private experience, the New Orleans location offers The Rampart Room.

Walk-On's “Whether you’re interested in a meeting space or somewhere to host your company’s next party, The Rampart Room offers versatile indoor and outdoor spaces showcasing New Orleans’ charm,” shares Kyle Brechtel, President of Brechtel Hospitality. “Our convenient Poydras Street location offers in-house catering and beverage services, rental inventory, ample space for a live band and AV capabilities to make things easy.

Located just above the Poydras location of Walk-On’s, The Rampart Room offers a unique environment for New Orleans natives and visitors alike. The second floor space offers a 980 square foot balcony overlooking street with the Mercedes Benz Superdome and Smoothie King Center in the background. The space is rounded out with a Billiard Room and private Study, each with its own access to the balcony.

“We have a number of intimate spaces to host guests,” shares Bechtel. “The intimate areas with separate, private entrances within The Rampart Room allow comfort for any special guests or VIPs in attendance.”

The past decade has seen several productions filming in New Orleans from blockbuster movies like
Jurassic World to the Emmy nominated TV show, American Horror Story. Walk-On’s is able to offer visiting productions an authentic New Orleans experience with A-List amenities. New Orleans-based Brechtel Hospitality took ownership of Walk-On’s earlier this year. The group was able to bring its extensive film industry experience from Fulton Alley to the restaurant and create not only a great event space, but expand its experienced catering services as well.
