Keep It Going: The Best White Linen Night Parties & Afterparties

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.
Tickets: $35+
