The original Fillmore is one of this country's most storied venues.  Originally opened in 1965, that intimate Fillmore was the epicenter of the American music scene during the 1960s and 70s, promoting the who’s who of iconic musical acts such as Aretha Franklin, Grateful Dead, Miles Davis, Jefferson Airplane, Cream; Santana, The Doors, Janis Joplin; and many, many others which helped it grow into the legend it is today.
NOLA’s Fillmore pays homage to the original club’s spirit with vintage posters, ornate chandeliers and velvet curtains to create a signature atmosphere that is welcoming for both artist and fans. Within the club’s main room and VIP club BG’s Lounge, fans will discover small batch liquors, local and national craft beers, curated wine selections, and an elevated full menu of local and chef favorites.  Popcorn Shrimp, Hot Chicken, Pulled Pork, Caribbean Chicken Wraps, Charcuterie and Cheese Bento Boxes, Classic Diner Burgers as well as The Impossible Burger vegan option are just a few of the items that will be available all night long; allowing guests to come early and stay late as part of their overall experience.

“Harrah’s New Orleans welcomes millions of guests through our doors each year.  It is our mission to provide those guests with world class gaming, food and beverage and entertainment synonymous with the Caesars Entertainment Brand,” said Dan Real, Caesars Entertainment regional president-south and Harrah’s New Orleans general manager. “In a city like New Orleans, where music is so important, we could not have found a better partner than Live Nation.  The addition of the Fillmore New Orleans to our second floor is going to offer our guests the opportunity to see some of the nation’s top performing artists in a world class venue.”
