Event space

Central City BBQ is not only home to great BBQ in the Big Easy, but it is also one of the newest and most unique venues near the CBD for hosting special events.

Central City BBQ boasts one of the most remarkable, versatile event spaces in all of New Orleans. With over 6,000 square feet of indoor event space, our completely renovated facility offers up enough space to comfortably seat up to 200 guests. Our enclosed 40,000 square feet of outdoor courtyard, the Smokeyard, adds an irresistible indoor/outdoor element and charm to the event space that has made Central City BBQ the regular annual host of events like the NOLA Crawfish Festival, the Marley Gras Jerk Chicken Festival, and the NOLA Caribbean Festival.

That expansive indoor/outdoor space combined with our built-in bar and killer menu offerings make Central City BBQ the perfect spot to accommodate almost any size and type of shindig you’re looking to throw! From corporate events to weddings, and seated dinners to a whole hog extravaganza, our restaurant can and will satisfy all of your requirements and serve up a fabulous experience your guests will never forget.

For more intimate gatherings, look no further than our Pit Room. With 12 farmhouse tables, an array of colorful seating, and walls built from reclaimed pine and cypress, you and your guests are sure to enjoy the rustic, authentic atmosphere of the Pit Room, our private event space. At 3,000 square feet, The Pit Room at Central City BBQ looks forward to accommodating your every need at your exclusive gathering, whether that be a formal sit-down dinner, wedding, corporate event, or a more casual gathering.
