image description It’s Friday, July 25 and 10:05pm in Downtown New Orleans.

Here we focus on Downtown New Orleans' successful and eclectic business people, service providers, creative entrepreneurs and residents. It profiles the people behind some of our city's most successful companies and initiatives, and lets them tell you directly why Downtown works for them and why this city inspires them in everything they do.

These city leaders are the threads that bind the fabric of the Downtown community. Downtown NOLA Works allows you to hear from these stars, people like yourself who seized the opportunity not just to build a business or career, but to rebuild a legend of a city.
