B&W Courtyards is perfectly situated for travelers coming to New Orleans for Satchmo Fest, Coolinary New Orleans and Southern Decadence
Jazz Fest may be over, and French Quarter Festival a fading memory, but there are still plenty of things to do in New Orleans.

There's Essence Festival over the Fourth of July weekend, Satchmo Summer Fest during the first weekend of August, Coolinary New Orleans all during the month of August and Southern Decadence 2019 over Labor Day weekend.


Magical nights await in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome during the largest rhythm & blues festival in the world. Powerful main stage performances by music legends and artists will make you stand out of your seat and dance the night away.  Superlounge performances are open to all ticket-holders for more intimate performances by today’s brightest stars.

This year's headliners are  Mary J. Blige, Missy Elliot and Maze, featuring Frankie Beverly.  In the Superlounge you'll see and hear Pharrell Williams, Doug E Fresh, Big Freedia, Erica Falls & Nigel Hall, to name just a few.
AUGUST 2 - 4 2019
Hot temperatures & hot jazz in mid-summer.  Focusing on traditional jazz, Satchmo Summerfest 2019 features the best of New Orlean's home grown talent augmented by international stars. 

Satchmo Fest will be held at the Old United States Mint, now a jazz museum, and is just a few blocks away from B&W Courtyards.

And, as an additional inducement, we are offering our Coolinary rates beginning Satchmo Fest weekend.  We will, however, be in guest house mode for the month:  we won't be serving breakfast and won't be doing daily housekeeping.

But not to worry:  Cake Bakery & Cafe, one of New Orlean's best breakfast spots, is diagonally across the street from us.
AUGUST  1 - 31

Throughout the month of August, you'll have the chance to sample cooking that thrills your taste buds  and is an  part of the history and culture of New Orleans. This annual culinary tradition features specially priced prix-fixe lunch, dinner and brunch menus at some of New Orleans' finest restaurants.

Some of our favorite restaurants, including Bayona, Brigtsen’s, Tableau, GW Fins and Meauxbar take part in Coolinary.

Southern Decadence 2019, spanning 5 days over Labor Day weekend,  is the largest LGBT festival in the South.  The event is marked by walking parades, street parties, bead tossing, dances and other revelry. 

In some ways it resembles Mardi Gras, but it's more adult in nature.  Crowd sizes have ranged from 100,000 to 300,000 revelers who travel to New Oreans from around the world.

B&W Courtyards is well situated for Southern Decadence:  just a short walk to the French Quarter, but in a quiet neighborhood when it's time to call it a night (or early morning.)
