Gallier Hall is a fantastic historic building on St Charles Avenue at Lafeyette Square. The building was originally designed to be the city hall of New Orleans by the noted architect, James Gallier Sr (a prominent New Orleans architect born in Co Louth, Ireland). Dedicated in 1853, Gallier Hall is a three-story marble structure in the Neoclassical style and is one of the most important structures built during the ante-bellum period of the city. Gallier Hall’s interior represents New Orleans’ grandeur at that time.
The Gallier Hall event will feature Irish music sessions, bagpipers, local band Rites of Passage, Irish Dancers from three local schools, an open bar, food from local Chefs, informational booths from other local Irish Organizations, as well as some other surprises. It will be the Irish party of the year.
