About Pythian Market
Pythian Market is an urban food collective located on the ground floor of the historic Pythian Temple in downtown New Orleans. The market features 14 uniquely-curated artisan purveyors and retail vendors that showcase a mosaic of cuisines representing the many cultures that make up today’s culinary landscape in New Orleans. From fresh Gulf seafood and authentic Vietnamese street food to Louisiana comfort fare, diners can expect soulful, fresh and creative cuisine served up in a convivial atmosphere. The market’s Bar 1908, under the direction of Beverage Director Lisa Nyugen (Cure & Seaworthy), features fast craft cocktails, local beers and a variety of seasonal frozen concoctions. The 11,000-square foot space is both rustic and modern with exposed brick, polished concrete and pendant lighting. Local artisans Matthew Holdren, Ashlee Arceneaux Jones and Brandan ‘Bmike’ Odums have each crafted elements of the marketplace that pay tribute to the storied history of the building; from tables made from the original dance floors from 1909 to a mural which depicts civil rights activist couple A.P. Turead and Lucille Dejoie who first met at The Pythian.
About The Pythian Building
A collaborative effort by co-developers ERG Enterprises, Crescent City Community Land Trust and Green Coast Enterprises, The Pythian is a repurposed, renovated mixed-use development featuring 69 apartments, offices, event space and Pythian Market – a ground floor multi-vendor food collective. From its construction by the Colored Knights of Pythias under the leadership of Smith W. Green in 1908, to its use as a headquarters during World War II by Andrew Jackson Higgins, whom President Eisenhower called “the man who won the war,” the Pythian building has been integral to civil and human rights for over 100 years. It was seminal in the development of Jazz and was likely the first place that a 12-year old Louis Armstrong ever performed publicly.
