NEW ORLEANS (CelebrityAccess) Live Nation has unveiled details for The Fillmore at Harrah’s New Orleans, which is coming to NOLA early next year.
The 2,000-capacity venue will be located inside Harrah’s Casino and will showcase state-of-the-art production, vintage poster art, VIP amenities, dining options and hospitality, according to the announcement. The design will reflect local architecture and material like wrought-iron gate segments and clapboard sidings throughout the venue. The lobby bar will have a hand-painted sousaphone rotating from the center and feature small-batch liquors.
The VIP room, called BG’s Lounge in a nod to Fillmore founder Bill Graham, will have “hints of black magic, voodoo and masquerade balls.” It will have dedicated bar service with reserve seating and private restrooms.
“New Orleans is a city with a proud musical heritage, and we could not be more excited that The Fillmore will join the host of great live music that this city has to offer,” said Ron Bension, president of Live Nation’s Club & Theatre group. “The venue’s industry-leading amenities and intimate 2,000-person capacity fill a gap in the market and will attract performers that often bypass the city, which will ultimately give audiences an even wider array of concert experiences to enjoy.”
It was important to Harrah’s New Orleans that we find the right partner to help us transform our second-floor space into a destination,” said Dan Real, Caesars Entertainment regional president-south and Harrah’s New Orleans general manager. “In a city where live music abounds from street corners to the stage, The Fillmore is a perfect addition to Harrah’s New Orleans and will create memorable experiences for both locals and guests.”
