A Deep South Nightclub with West Coast Flair
The Fillmore New Orleans, a new live music venue on the second floor of Harrah’s Casino, features design elements that effortlessly blend San Francisco’s historic psychedelic 60s with the cultural archetypes of New Orleans.
Hundreds of fans queued up in front of the old-fashioned theater marquee on Canal Street last month not only to see Coheed and Cambria perform, but to celebrate the launch of New Orleans’ newest music venue, the Fillmore New Orleans. Live Nation, the world’s largest producer of live entertainment, has created this multimillion dollar facility, adding it to their growing Fillmore family of venues across the country. “We’ve spent a lot of time and money, I think more money than anyone else in the country, on designing these spaces that create memorable moments for our guests and for the bands who perform in our venues,” says Ron Bension, Live Nation’s president of clubs and theaters.
