Our venue is located in the heart of the Lower Garden District facing Sophie B Wright Park. Built in 1931, Il Mercato is a Spanish colonial style building designed by prominent local architect Sam Stone and originally constructed as a neighborhood market.The 2014 renovation by local restaurateur Joel Dondis added herringbone wood floors, Italianate chandeliers, and a furnished library with banquet seating. The property also features a large private courtyard, perfect for your next event or ceremony.
