The Valiant Theatre is beautiful, versatile, and intimate. Our 120 seat black box theatre is the perfect size for the greater New Orleans area’s best production companies. The Theatre has both raised stage and raised seating, giving everyone in the audience a perfect view of the action. The Theatre is double insulated from outside noise, including any sound from our bar or the street. It is acoustically rich so you’ll hear every word from the stage.
Our standard stage dimensions are 12′ x 25′ with a 2′ elevation. The theatre included a trap door, aerialist rigging, and 17′ ceilings; there’s a lot for artists to play with! The dressing room has entry to the stage from either side, a loft storage space, bathroom, and outside access. At 10′ x 25′, the dressing room has enough space to comfortably accommodate a dozen or more performers.
Equipped with a full lighting grid, sound system, and brand new air conditioning, the Valiant Theatre outshines every comparably sized space in the New Orleans area. And yes, you can bring your drink in with you.
The Valiant Lounge is a full service cocktail bar set to be open seven days a week from 4pm to midnight or later. The Lounge is non-smoking and has live piano and acoustic music three nights a week.
Managed by veteran bar owner Paul Chiriaco and designed by artist Erica Gaudet, the Valiant Lounge is a perfect mix of class and comfort. We feature a changing array of craft cocktails tailor made to match each show in addition to a high end liquor selection and reasonable prices. A visit to the Lounge is an ideal compliment to a night at the theatre.
It’s also the first bar you’ll see going in or out of New Orleans, so why not stop by for a drink?
