A centerpiece of the 12-acre New Orleans Botanical Garden, the Pavilion of the Two Sisters is modeled after a traditional European orangery. With its long banks of arched windows, the Pavilion offers lovely vistas of the Zemurray Azalea and Camellia Garden featuring the Flute Player fountain by artist Enrique Alferez to the east and the original 1930s garden and new Conservatory to the west.
The Pavilion may be rented alone or in concert with gardens to either side or with the garden as a whole, accommodating as many at 2,000. Both the Lord & Taylor Rose Parterre to the west and Zemurray Terrace are popular settings for weddings with receptions following at the Pavilion.
With cool slate floors below and a Mario Villa designed palm frond chandelier above, the Pavilion measures 100 feet long and 60 feet wide. The climate controlled main room is 87 feet long and 60 feet wide and is capable of accommodating 200 to 400 guests for a cocktail reception, a seated dinner for 300 or theater-style.
