The Jaxson on the River
In honor of all you venue-searching brides, I thought I'd devote today's Wedding Wednesday to a venue review! This post could really be titled Venue with a View: Part Deux, considering the location, which is- you guessed it- right next door to Pat O's on the River (check out my Patty O's review here). As I've said before, this is an ideal location for brides in search of a riverfront, French Quarter location. The views of the Mississippi and Jackson Square are unrivaled!
The Jaxson on the River is a venue that I like to call a 'diamond in the rough.' The space looks like it has amazing potential, however, it's hard to get a real feel for the place because it is still under construction. Located at 620 Decatur Street (Unit 2B), the venue has a wide open floor plan with views of both Decatur Street and the Mississippi River. Upon entering, the room opens up into a large, ballroom-esque space that stretches from the river dining room facing the Mississippi to the parlor dining room facing Decatur. There is a large bar near the middle of the room, facing opposite a space that will be the foyer and sitting area complete lounge furniture. There will also be a large room off of the parlor dining area that will be utilized as the bridal suite during wedding events. A nice feature that the Jaxson will offer is a moveable room divider that will make the space more intimate for smaller events.Read More
