Slip away from Julia St. and you’ll find all kinds of action.
White Linen Night is fun enough on its own. If you just want to make a night of wandering Julia Street among the early evening hordes, you’re more than welcome to. The problem lies in the fact that White Linen Night is also a Saturday night and nobody wants to be done by 9. Fortunately for everyone, there are plenty of after-parties and sideshows to slide into once you’re done with the galleries.
Check out a few of our favorites below.
504ward Connections Party
We’re starting with this one because it’s not technically an afterparty. It’s just a little harder to get into than the rest of the Warehouse District that night. The ticket gets you all-you-can-drink cocktails, food and alcoholic snoballs, along with a free pass to roam through the excellent museum.
Where: Louisiana Children’s Museum
When: 6 p.m.
Party After Dark
The CAC will be hosting regular White Linen revelers for most of the evening, showcasing its new collection of regional artworks. But after White Linen Night ends, DJ RQ Away takes over the CAC to keep the party going. Don’t miss out on the food and games in this beautiful space.
Where: Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans
When: 9 p.m.
It’s not officially related to White Linen Night in any way, but you can expect plenty of white-clad folks to hit this dance music hotspot and party until the wee hours.
Where: Ohm Lounge
When: 10 p.m.- 3 a.m.
White Linen After Party with Satchfied Music and Dat Dog
The Rusty Nail’s position at the very edge of the Warehouse District makes it a perfect place to end up after any downtown shenanigans. Disco music and a pop-up from Dat Dog are on offer, as is their always deadly disco lemonade.
Where: The Rusty Nail
When: 7 p.m. – 2 a.m.
The Links/Black Market Suitor/Fighting For Frequency
If you wanna catch a show after people-watching, The Den at the Howlin’ Holf has just the ticket.
Where: The Howlin’ Wolf
When: 10 p.m.
White Linen Throwback Party
If all the art gets you in the mood to dance to some old-school hits, DJ Otto and CBD Social have you covered. This cover-free event promises great music, drink specials and visual art for those who didn’t get enough outside of their doors.
Where: CBD Social
When: 8 p.m.
